Everyone is talking about the Naked Gun, Airplane or Forbidden Planet and how they are going to go watch them to think of him.

Not me.

Tonight I shall put in Surf Ninjas and remember.

RIP Leslie.

Earth is a darker place today.

Rest in peace Leslie D;

Today is sad day.

And suddenly, the world is a lot less funnier than before...

I hear that. I loved The Naked Gun, and well, all other movies I've seen him in (his part in Scary Movie improved the quality almost enough to make them good).

I am sad, and not sure if there's anyone else quite like him. :( RIP


I request that the date of his death become a nationally recognized event in every nation on the globe, if not a full on holiday.

The man is a legend.

Comedy just got a whole lot worse.

National step-on-a-mysterious-rake-while-being-at-home day!

I loved that guy!

RIP you silly, silly man



An amazingly funny actor. You will be missed.

Sad news, indeed. (We need to give him a 21-whoopie-cushion salute, for his favourite on-set prank.) I'm thinking of watching Airplane! tonight in his memory.

Usually I'd joke around just a little but...wow. This puts a damper on my day. I loved that man, and all his work. Rest in peace, Shirley.

Aww that sucks. :(

RIP Leslie Nielsen (and not shirley).

well, let's hope for the best, and start rewatching his good old movies !

He was the last great slapstick actor.

Well fuck this... He was a very, very funny man. At least we have a few dozen movies of him...

This is terrible, terrible news. Life is now less funny for having lost him.

funniest movies ive ever seen

Aww, that's sad news:(

I liked pretty much all of his movies, even underrated ones like Wrongfully Accused.

Send flowers to his bitches and hos.

It's sad to think there will be no more of his complete dead pan comedy.


Another flare in this ever darkening world goes out. We will miss him.

Wow...thats good.

Another legend passes into history, and the world mourns his passing.

RIP Leslie Nielsen

Why oh why...

I had a horrible day at school, first I HAD to go to school and the first thing I was ever told today the first four words out of someones mouth to me was "Leslie Nielsen is dead" amd more than half the people I told didn't know who he was till I said Airplane! or Naked Gun.


I'm gonna go cry now.

the world is a much worse place.

Another part of my childhood gone forever.

R.I.P. Mr. Nielsen.

My reponse when I first heard this (as I suspect many had) was 'Surely you can't be serious?'

Great man, great actor, great influence.

sad to see him go, he was a great actor and a very funny man.


Surely I'll miss you.

That was the second thing that popped into my head too.
The first of course was
"Don't call me Shirley."

It wasn't OJ, was it?

Considering he was preety old, this isn't all that suprising. Of course, that doesn't make it any less sad and tragic. =(

Rest in peace and thank you for all the laughs.

What a world we live in.

George Carlin - Dead

Bernie Mac - Dead

Leslie Nielson - Dead

Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer - Healthy as frickin' mules!

yeah, I found out this morning :(

Loved him in the Naked Gun films, we will all miss his comedy.

My reaction...

Rest In Pieces old friend.

This is the most depressing thing I've heard in a while. I love Leslie Nielsen. Man was a genius actor. I'm going to go watch Forbidden Planet and cry now.

Rest in Peace, Shirly.
