One review

  • In the third, and at least for the time being, last instalment of Naked Gun series, Frank Drebin (Hilarious Leslie Nielsen) has retired from the force and is now trying to have normal family life with his gorgeous wife Jane (Priscilla Presly). But Frank is a man of action, so when he is offered an undercover job by his old captain Ed Hocken (George Kennedy) he takes it, despite he had promised to leave the police work behind him.

    And who am I kidding here? The plot is only an excuse to get Frank into potentially hilarious and/or embarrassing situations. The bets laughs of the story are delivered in the first half of the film, after that the amount of hits and misses grow, but in all the comedy manages play through at least in the level of above average, thus being safe from being a total travesty. But it never does manage to get in the level of Naked Gun 2, which is by far the funniest of the trilogy.

    In conclusion, Nielsen has been in a lot worse comedies than this is, so I’ll give it my thumbs up, as it really does deliver a couple of laughs, despite the latter part of the film provides more of smirks and grins.
