MOVIE: Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Fi­nal In­sult

GO!, 9.30pm, PG (1994)

The Daily Examiner - - LIFE TV GUIDE -

The third ad­ven­ture for the late Les­lie Nielsen’s im­be­cilic Lt Frank Dre­bin finds him com­ing out of re­tire­ment and in­fil­trat­ing the gang of a mad bomber (Fred Ward), who is plot­ting to blow up the Acad­emy Awards. Once again, the non­sense plot is an ex­cuse for gags, book­ended by a bril­liant open­ing spoof of The

Un­touch­ables and end­ing with a spot-on satire of the Os­cars. An im­prove­ment on Naked Gun 2 1/2, and while Nielsen may be gone, his comic bril­liance will live on for­ever in ve­hi­cles such as this.
