Night Patrol (1984)





Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Movie Info

Essentially a knock-off of the "Police Academy" series, this slapstick comedy tells the idiotic tale that contains humor to offend just about everyone as it tells the story of a milque-toast cop who moonlights at night as a paper-bag wearing stand-up comic who unfortunately gets mistaken for a paper-bag wearing bank robber.

... the movie soon becomes the sort of tired punfest that went out with, well, "The $1.98 Beauty Show," "The Gong Show" and "The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour."

Audience Reviews for Night Patrol


An outrageous, fun, and very funny spoof of cop movies. Some may say it's like Police Academy, but I'd say it's more like Police Academy meets Airplane!, as it combines the styles. Other than that, it's got a good story and fun characters, and I really enjoyed it for the most part. There are a couple of unfunny jokes here and there, though. Overall, a pretty good movie.

This 1984 crude comedy was meant as a vehicle of comedian Murray Langston a.k.a. The Unknown Comic, but sank to nowhere upon its initial release. It gained a steady cult following on the drive in theater of the 1980's: late night cable TV. The story is about Langston moonlighting from his police job by being a comic with a paper bag on his head.
