This might not be a good start to the franchise on, and to start my little remembrance of Leslie Nielsen. With that said, I think the I know why so many people were so affected by the death of Robin Williams, it was as if part of their childhood was now gone. Don't get me wrong, I loved Robin Williams as well but he wasn't as formative a part of the movies I grew up watching, though he was part of it. But I felt that much greater when Leslie Nielsen passed away back in 2010. It's not that Leslie himself had as big or prominent roles as a Robin Williams in order to cement him as a beloved actor, but I grew up thinking that Leslie Nielsen was one of the funniest men alive. And that was due to the Naked Gun trilogy and Airplane, though I came to love Airplane much later than I loved Naked Gun. I loved Leslie Nielsen to the point that I actually went to see the live action Mr. Magoo in theaters when I was like 9 years old or something. And I realize now that Mr. Magoo was an awful movie, but that's how much I loved Leslie Nielsen as a little kid. With that out of the way, onto this film, this actually has aged better than I remember it. It's still the worst of the trilogy, but the film is still legitimately funny. Perhaps it has the same sort of 'diminishing returns' that you get with each sequel in a franchise that's as goofy and as slapstick heavy as this one. The third time is, usually, never a charm when it comes to films and that's no different here, though this is still an entertaining and supremely silly film. If you've seen the previous two films then you know exactly what to expect. A lot of sight gags and slapstick and, for the most part, I do think it actually works. It's not like it's hilarious, but there's some good bits here. The film does hold for the most part, but I will say that the third act of the film, taking place at the Academy Awards, was the most inconsistent stretch of the film. There were as many hits as there were misses. I guess you could say that this was the case with the entire movie, but I thought that the hits outnumbered the misses, at least, 2 to 1. Though that ratio is almost evened up during the Academy Awards section of the film. There's still some funny moments, but it's obvious that the scriptwriters ran out of steam at the end. And that's understandable when you've got a film that's so heavy on schtick as opposed to dialogue and interplay with characters, like a Little Miss Sunshine for example. With that said, I still enjoyed the hell out of this movie. It's much better than I remember it being, but it's not perfect and not even close to being the best film of this franchise. I can't really recommend this, because I'm judgment is biased because of my love for this trilogy and Leslie Nielsen, but I had a lot of fun watching this.
