Naked Gun 33⅓ : The Final Insult (1994)

This second chip off the Naked Gun block follows the hallowed tradition of wallowing in stupidity. Still, it’s hard to hate a sequel whose ad copy contains the line “mostly all new jokes”.

Nielsen’s Frank Drebin, now retired from the LAPD, remains a treasured lunatic. He’s forced back on the job, much to the chagrin of his lawyer wife (Priscilla Presley), when a terrorist (Fred Ward) threatens that most sacred of institutions, the Academy Awards.

Director Peter Segal spends a great deal of energy staging the climactic free-for-all of bullets and pratfalls at the Shrine Auditorium where Lt. Drebin mingles disastrously with stars of the calibre of Pia Zadora, Vanna White and Weird Al Yankovic.

To be honest, the finale of The Bodyguard was funnier!
