The greatest comedian of all time.
I love Leslie Nielsen just as much as the next guy, buuuut.... 'all time'? I'm an annoying dickhead
He wasn't even considered a comedic actor until he happened to take a small part in Airplane! and that film and his collaboration with the Zucker brothers turned his career around 180 degreees afterwards. Just sayin'...
PS: Everybody knows that Airplane! >>>>>> Dead And Lovin' It.
I... I haven't actually seen Airplane!
Surely you can't be serious.
*There's actually a sequel to Airplane! as well.
Airplane is easily his funniest performance because he plays it so completely serious. Some of his best serious movies would be Forbidden Planet, a great science fiction film from the 50s where he fights an invisible monster and The Poseidon Adventure where he plays the ill fated captain.
Shasvre Want to see Leslie Nielsen fight a bear?
he was great in dracula dead and loving it, a seriously criminally underrated gem of a movie
Want to see Leslie Nielsen fight an invisible monster? It goes a bit better than the bear.
