The Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell of Fear Reviews

May 6, 2014
Nielsen combines B-movie earnestness, exuberant mugging, and a trouper's slightly desperate cheerfulness: he turns this rather alarming character into a sweet, ebullient lunatic -- albeit one who's hell on innocent bystanders.

The enthusiastic Zucker, Zucker & Abrahams style of movie parody is too rarely seen to prompt much head-shaking about gags that don't work.

Nielsen's secret is that he does almost nothing, and certainly nothing he seems to think is funny.
