The book passed to Dr. Meinheimer, "Strokin' the Love Muffin", is in fact the original "The A-Team" book by Charles Heath. While the two pages are clearly visible, only the top paragraph of the second page (191) is edited to tailor that particular scene, which is read by Dr. Meinheimer word for word. The remainder of the pages are accurate to the rest of the book. See more »
Right after Frank, Nordberg, and Ed reach the roof, they are fired on by 2 gunmen, one with a submachine gun and the other with a pistol. The gunman with the pistol fires 4 rounds at the three detectives, but only one shot produces a muzzle flash. See more »
Leave it to the ZAZ boys (Zucker, Abrahams, Zucker) to bring back the stupidity, insanity and downright madness of Leslie Nielsen and company while also deflating cop films, government conspiracies the movie "Ghost" and the grace of ballroom dancing.
In "The Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell of Fear", Det. Frank Drebin (Nielsen) and his fellow cop cronies (Kennedy, Simpson) discover the lovely Jane (Presley) while protecting energy expert Professor Mainheimer (Griffiths) from evil guy Quentin Hapsburg (Goulet!) and his nefarious plans....
But you don't care about the plot, do you? No, and well you shouldn't; the gags are the thing in these films and they not only come fast and furious but wild and wooly, down and dirty and good and dumb.
Just the way I like them.
You'll lose count of the sight gags, double over at the double-entendres and guffaw at the puns and wonder, thought it all, why it is that all sequels can't be as good as this. Especially sequels that contain Barabara Bush abuse.
Another good case, Drebin!
Ten stars and a gold copy of "Unchained Melody" for "The Naked Gun 2 1/2", where "Fear" never "Smell"ed so funny.
