Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult

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


Is the third and final film in a comedy classic trilogy…

“Well… We shot a lot of people together. It’s been great. But today I retire, so if I do any shooting now, it’ll have to be within the confines of my own home. Hopefully, an intruder and not an in-law, like at my bachelor party.” 

                                
The Last Time we saw Frank Drebin?



After foiling the Evil energy companies plain to use a Dr. Mainheimer decoy and disarming a bomb. Frank got Jane back and decided he will retire from the police force and spend his time with Jane.

“Rocco could tell from my little escapade in the shower that I was well endowed… with courage.”

Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult (Trailer)After retiring last time we saw him, Frank comes out of retirement to help Police Squad. This time he goes deep undercover to infiltrate terrorists who plan on using the Academy Awards to detonate a bomb. During this time Frank and Jane try to start a family as well as getting help with some problems this has brought up. Can Frank save the day, as well as produce a child for Jane? Let’s watch and find out! 

“Hey! You call this slop? Real slop has got chunks in it! This is more like gruel! And this Château le Blanc ’68 is supposed to be served slightly chilled! This is room temperature! What do you think we are, animals?” 

Sure, Naked Gun 33 1/3 is a bit weaker then what we come to aspect from a Naked Gun film, but it’s still funny. It seems to be a very underrated film online when people talk about. I feel its better then people give it. It has it’s issues and could never really be as good as the first one, that’s a given. This film was Directed by Peter Segal and not David Zucker, so we have that going on. But it is still written by David and still has those great lines we all come to love with the Naked Gun trilogy. The issue with this film is the story. The weak “Bad guys” really felt like they just threw something together just so they could get the film made. The strongest part is just like every other time is the performance of Leslie Nielsen. But unlike films of today they did stop making these films and didn’t keep trying. They simply stopped rehashing Frank and I give them credit for that. I won’t lie, I would of like to seen a fourth one, but do to the passing of the comedy legend Leslie Nielsen I hope they never try to remake or create a sequel to this fantastic Naked Gun trilogy. And if someone tries too, trust me, they will have to go through me first…and the shit will hit the fan!

“They’re going to blow that place sky high. It’ll be a tragedy. Unless it’s during a dance number.”
Favorite scene in this film is a classic!

Nurse: “Do you need any help?”
Drebin: “Do you have Spartacus?”

Ladies and Gentlemen I give you…
What’s your favorite scene?
“Look, baby. I am what I am, and I do what I do. A few guys make shoelaces, some lay sod, others make a very good living neutering animals. I’m a cop!”

And that’s it! Every Naked Gun film, Do you agree they are all good, thou get weaker with each one?

The Naked Gun 2½: The Smell of Fear

The Naked Gun 2½: The Smell of Fear: Hilarious


Is the second film in a comedy classic trilogy…

“Well, send him plane fare and a new pair of pants.” 
The Last Time we saw Frank Drebin?
his best friend and partner, played by O.J. Simpson was in a coma after being shot 6 times. As he was investigate the shooting he stumbled onto a plot to assassinate Queen Elizabeth II by Vincent Ludwig, played by Ricardo Montalban. 
“Thank you. But, in all honesty, the last three I backed over with my car. Luckily, they turned out to be drug-dealers.”
The Naked Gun 2½: The Smell of Fear (Trailer)
Lt. Frank Drebbin is back! A new evil has popped up and its up to Frank to save the day! Both Frank and Jane are no longer together and a Scientist named Dr. Mainheimer is publishing a report on the future of energy. Evil energy companies like nuclear and oil decided to save their industries by replacing Dr. Mainheimer with a decoy who has his own report that will keep nuclear and oil at the front of the future of energy. 
“There, there. You had no way of knowing the man you were dating was a vicious, murdering sociopath.”
The smell of fear is a very good sequel to really a perfect comedy. It’s tough to make another film when the first is a comedy masterpiece. But all said and done 2 1/2 is a funny film. It’s a solid sequel that has great quotes, more O.J. and more action. I highly enjoy this film and highly suggests you watch this film especially if you haven’t before it’s that good. And let’s hope you seen the first one since it’s such a perfect film.
They really don’t make funny films like this anymore!
“I’m single! I love being single! I haven’t had this much sex since I was a boy scout leader!” 
My favorite scene from The Final Insult is the Lion scene. I remember seeing this for the first time and when the lion comes out of nowhere and attacks, I fell to the ground out of my chair. The link of when Frank letting loose of all the animals at the zoo to the attack was so perfect it made me cry with laughter. Like the pee scene from the first film, this scene gets me every damn time!

“Oh, that would be me. I’ve been swimming in raw sewage. I love it!”

Stay tuned for tomorrow as we look at

Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!

Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!: Hysterical

Is the first film in a comedy classic trilogy…
Like The Godfather Trilogy, Back to the Future and The Man with No Name Trilogy, The Naked Gun Trilogy

stands with that group as one of the greatest trilogies of all-time!
“It’s fourth and fifteen and you’re looking at a full-court press” In 1982 the television comedy series, Police Squad! premiered. It was the beginning of one of the greatest comedy franchises ever created. Sadly it only lasted six episodes, but it spawned the great Naked Gun trilogy.
“I’ve finally found someone I can love – a good, clean love… without utensils.” 

Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! (Trailer)

is about a cop named Frank Drebin who comes back after his best friend and partner, played by O.J. Simpson is shot 6 times (missing ever vital organ) is now in a coma. Once he begins to investigate the shooting he stumbles on a plot to assassinate Queen Elizabeth II by Vincent Ludwig, played by Ricardo Motalban. This film is one of the GREATEST COMEDIES of all time! Airplane is up on the list as well but like Airplane, Leslie Nielsen is the highlight of the film and in Naked Gun we get more of that. Leslie Nielsen is a comedy Legend and Naked Gun is the film that did it for me. Never has a film come as close.
“Yes. Well, when I see 5 weirdos dressed in togas stabbing a guy in the middle of the park in full view of 100 people, I shoot the bastards. That’s *my* policy.” When you watch this film you will laugh and laugh! The whole time you watch this film you will have a smile on your face. It’s that good! In fact this form of comedy has been copied so many times I.E. the stupid Meet the Spartans, Epic Movie and Disaster Movie (can’t believe I had to write those titles on this site, but I’m making a point) and they all failed at it. This franchise is one of a kind and yet it stands up today! It’s still one of the best comedies of all time!
“Yes, he’s in the intensive care ward at Our Lady of the Worthless Miracle.”

I have so many favorite scenes in this film, but if I had to pick just one (which is tough)…

I’d pick the Press Conference Scene it gets me everytime!

What’s your favorite scene in the Naked Gun?
