    What I found odd about Nielsen is that when he TRIED to be funny, he wasn’t. His strength was the deadpan approach, but when he started acting goofy in the Naked Gun series, it just came out un-funny. He was great in Airplane because he didn’t get kicked in the nuts, didn’t get bonked on the head, just played the straight guy with all the great lines.

    Yeah, the deadpan stuff worked the best. The first NG movie, and the series was very funny. But it got real old, which is why the “Dead, And Loving It” type movies bombed. Well, they made some money, but they were never nearly as successful as Airplane or the first Naked Gun.
