I've heard this movie compared to The Naked Gun, but I think that's just because of a lack of appropriate mainstream things to compare it to.  Movies like Airplane or Naked Gun have much of their humor come about from silly wordplay or strange things going on all across the frame.  Black Dynamite is more like The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, in that both try to accurately mimic some genre, then kick everything to 200% to accentuate the strangeness.  In this case, blaxploitation.

This movie works both as a comedy, and for introducing one of the most badass characters around.  Easily one of the best movies I've seen in the last few years.
