The Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult (1994)



Critic Consensus: This overly silly third installment attempts to hit the same funny notes as the original, but falls flat overall.

Movie Info

The further misadventures of bumbling Los Angeles police Lieutenant Frank Drebin (Leslie Nielsen) are chronicled in this third installment in the popular Naked Gun comedy series. This by-the-numbers entry begins with Drebin as a happily retired house-husband called back into action when an evil terrorist organization threatens Los Angeles.

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (8)

Silly enough to make you laugh sometimes in spite of yourself -- at least if you're feeling like a little boy.

The film's first-time director, Peter Segal, has adopted the series' style seamlessly.

Top Critic

It's sad to see what started out as such a lively and creative series descend to this -- a feeble attempt to stretch a few pedestrian jokes into a feature-length film.

Top Critic

Wherever you are in the story, there's always something funny coming at you.

Washington Post
Top Critic

Manages to be not only still funny but energetically slapped together and occasionally inventive.

It occurred to me, watching the film, that what Leslie Nielsen and Priscilla Presley do here is not easy, and is done well.

Audience Reviews for The Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult

Not as great like the first two pictures. Still The Naked Gun 33 1/3 it's the final installment of an unforgettable serie and closing one of the best trilogies ever.

Super Reviewer

This features less decent laughs than 2 1/2 and the original, but does contain some more recognised scenes, from the opening, to the *SPOILER REMOVED*. However, Neilsen still maintains his reputation as a master of slapstick comedy

Pretty much to everyone's surprise the third and final installment of the most hilarious cop comedy series of all times is an enhancement after the second. Sure, a couple of jokes feel repetitive by now, you just know the type of things Frank Drebin will say or cause. The film makes up for that with a rather different story and especially an outrageous showdown at the Oscar show, which of course will never be the same again thanks to a certain Lieutenant. Overall, you're having way too much fun with the silliness to worry about a couple of jokes you may have seen coming. It was probably a good decision to end the series right there, at least it went out while being on top.
