The opening credits sequence ends with Zsa Zsa Gabor slapping the police car. In 1989 Gabor was arrested for slapping a police officer and driving with an expired license. See more »
In the opening scene, Captain Brumford mentions that Frank's rank is Lieutenant. When Frank begins his opening narration, he mentions his rank as Sergeant. This is not an error but a running joke in the series that comes from the original Police Squad! TV show, where Drebin would be referred to as several different ranks through an episode of even in the same sentence. Frank's full, official title is "Sergeant Frank Drebin, Detective Lieutenant Police Squad", which is a fictional amalgamation of three different ranks of police officer. See more »

Ladies and gentlemen, I would now like to introduce a most special American. Tonight, he is being honoured for his 1000th drug-dealer killed.
Lt. Frank Drebin:
Thank you. But, in all honesty, the last three I backed over with my car. Luckily, they turned out to be drug-dealers.

Hilarious sequel to 'The Naked Gun: From The Files of Police Squad' **** out of *****
The Naked Gun: From the files of Police Squad was a huge hit back in 1988, so three years later, everyone returns for this funny sequel.
LT. Frank Drebin is back (The legend that is Leslie Nielsen) he's now split from Girlfriend Jane (Pricilla Presley) whose now involved romantically with shady Businessman Quentin Hapsburg (Robert Goulet). Drebin and his cop buddies, Capt Ed Hocken (George Kennedy) & Det. Norberg (O.J.Simpson) investigate when a Scientist Dr Meinheimer (Richard Griffiths) who advocates Solar Energy ahead of Oil,Coal & Nuclear prepares to publish his report to the President, Is suddenly kidnapped and a doppelganger (Griffiths Again) is put in his place. So LT Drebin once again hilariously saves the day.
The Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell of Fear, while does have a quick cash-in feel, is actually a really good sequel which is almost as good as the original, With funny Gags throughout, The Zucker Brothers and Pat Proft are on top form again.
**** out of *****
Follwed by The Naked Gun 33 1/3 : The Final Insult, while still good and a masterpiece compared to Diasater Movie (2008) or Epic Movie (2007) is slightly inferior to it's predecessors
