MOVIE: Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult
GO!, 9.30pm, PG (1994)
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.
