Directed by David Zucker (Airplane!, BASEketball, Ruthless People) made an enjoyable sequel to the original. The cast seems to be having an great time and there's some original new gags as well. This sequel was just as big at the box office like the original did. Although the film critics had mixed opinions with this one.
DVD has an sharp anamorphic Widescreen (1.78:1) transfer and an good digitally remastered Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. DVD includes the teaser trailer, original theatrical trailer and an humorous commentary track by the director, producer:Robert K. Weiss and Host:Peter Tilder. "The Naked Gun 2 1/2:The Smell of Fear" perphas lacks some of the great gags of the original. But if you enjoy spoof comedies, don't miss this one. TV Version adds some additional footage. Written by the director and Pat Proft (Bachelor Party, Hot Shots!, Police Academy). (****/*****).
