Lt. Frank Drebbin returns to save the day once again. This time he's out to foil the "big boys" in the energy business. A top scientist (Dr Mainheimer) is about to publish his report on energy supply for the future. Things don't look good for the traditional suppliers; oil, coal and nuclear. To save their industries, the suppliers kidnap Mainheimer and replace him with a decoy with a more favourable report. Jane, the Dr's secretary, is Drebbin's old flame; they're passionate love affair is thus rekindled. Written by
When Dr. Meinheimer/Earl Hacker's wheelchair malfunctions and flies across the floor, the guide/drag wire can be seen running between the door and the camera position. See more »
Lt. Frank Drebin:
This is Frank Drebin, Police Squad. Throw down your guns, and come on out with your hands up. Or come on out, then throw down your guns, whichever way you wanna do it. Just remember the two key elements here: one, guns to be thrown down; two, come on out!

Voice of George Bush (John Roarke): "All right, let's see if I've got this straight now. Energy efficiency - good. Drilling in arctic national wildlife refuge - bad." [A knock] Voice: "Uh, Mr. President, is everything okay in there?" President: "Yeah, I'm fine, thanks." [sound of toilet flushing] 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.
