Naked Gun 33 ⅓: The Final Insult


Frank Drebin (Leslie Nielsen), the pride of the LAPD, has retired but is called back into action for an undercover assignment in a prison. This third chapter offers a few bright ideas, such as a spoof of The Untouchables (1987), but this is largely a disappointment – and somewhat of a freak show, considering the participation of murder suspect O.J. Simpson and former Playmate Anna Nicole Smith (it’s hard to ignore some of the tabloid headlines and focus on the movie). Nielsen does what he’s supposed to, but the Academy Awards showdown goes on forever.

1994-U.S. 82 min. Color. Directed by Peter Segal. Screenplay: David Zucker, Pat Proft, Robert LoCash. Cast: Leslie Nielsen (Frank Drebin), Priscilla Presley (Jane Spencer-Drebin), George Kennedy (Ed Hocken), O.J. Simpson, Fred Ward, Kathleen Freeman… Anna Nicole Smith. Cameos: Elliott Gould, Mariel Hemingway, Morgan Fairchild, ”Weird” Al Yankovic, Shannen Doherty, Raquel Welch, James Earl Jones, Olympia Dukakis.

Razzies: Worst Supporting Actor (Simpson), New Star (Smith).

Quote: “Like a blind man at an orgy, I was going to have to feel my way through.” (Nielsen)
