The Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult Reviews
The slapstick is not as good and the end is cartoonist.
Anna Nicole Smith as the eye-candy blonde bimbo gives this movie a extra star.
The first Naked Gun was great: an hilarious slapstick-comedy. Clever, witty dialogue and brilliant sight-gags. So quotable.
Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell of Fear was a decent sequel. This was especially as far as comedy movies go, as the drop-off in originality and quality is normally quite steep from the original to the first sequel.
Admittedly, it wasn't as good as the original, mainly because by now you know what to expect. Plus, it would have been difficult to match the originality and hilarity of the first.
This, the third in the series, still has some great moments, especially towards the end, but can't maintain throughout the same level of hilarity and originality as the first. For the first 75% or so of the movie it is so-so, with not too many great gags. It is only at the end - the Oscar ceremony - that it gets laugh-out-loud funny.
Overall, entertaining and funny enough, but not as good as the first two movies, especially the first.
- 'The Naked Gun 33 1/3' is a 1994 comedy film by Peter Segal. This third and final chapter in 'The naked Gun' film franchise uses the same form of humor as the previous movies. For me it hits the spot perfectly. There are a lot of parody-references to other Hollywood movies of that time. With original cast members Leslie Nielsen (Scary Movie 3, Spy Hard), Priscilla Presley, George Kennedy and O.J. Simpson, and adding Fred Ward (Tremors), Kathleen Freeman (Gremlins 2) and Anna Nicole Smith (Skyscraper).
Although Frank Drebin (Nielsen) has retired from Police Squad, he is contacted by his former colleagues Ed Hocken (Kennedy) and Nordberg (Simpson) to investigate a possible plan of terrorism against the USA. Drebin goes undercover in order to befriend bomber Rocco Dillon (Ward) in prison. It doesn't take very long before Rocco's mother Muriel (Freeman) and his girlfriend Tanya (Smith) help the two escape. Now free, Frank will hear all about Rocco's terrorist mission, but things go bad when Jane (Presley) shows up...
