The Naked Gun was a hugely successful mainstream film. It did fantastic box office grossing about 80 million dollars on a 12 million dollar budget. Critics loved it. Fans love it. It rates 89% on Rotten Tomatoes. It regularly shows up in list of all time best comedies and spawned three successful sequels over the next 6 years.
It is the very epitome of a big, popular, comedy franchise.
NOBODY has ever worried about the "fear of others discovering" that they love THE NAKED GUN. Pretty much everybody does. It's a great shared experience.
The term "guilty pleasure" is not used to used to describe successful, acclaimed, popular, blockbusters.
