Oscar night. Who will win? Who will lose? And will someone please kick that numbskull off stage? Wait! That's no ordinary numbskull. That's Lt. Frank Drebin, crashing the ceremonies to stop a terrorist plot that could mean curtains for him -- or will a simple window shade be enough? Written by

I enjoyed the first two Naked Guns. I laughed at the gags and slapstick and inside jokes that I missed. "Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult" is even better than the two installments, and, despite the subtitle, you won't be insulted.
Police Squad Lieutenant Frank Drebin is now married to the love of his life, Jane (Precilla Presley) and has retired from his job. Unfortunately, she wants a baby, but Frank is sterile. Fed up with him, Jane leaves him.
Frank's police buddies Ed and Nordberg (George Kennedy and O.J. Simpson)force him to get back on the squad. He accepts, taking the case of a criminal (Fred Ward) who, along with his mother and sister (Kathleen Freeman & Anna Nicole Smith) plan to bomb the Academy Awards. As usual, it's up to Frank to save the day... and his marriage.
"The Final Insult" continues the ZAZ (Zucker-Abrams-Zucker) team's staple of non-stop jokes and gags, and a great amount of them work. Laughs here are frequent. Peter Segal, who went on to direct the very funny cult hit comedy "Tommy Boy", started his film-making career with this sequel, and he does a great job setting up the jokes, especially the slapstick free-for-all at the Oscars, which has to be one of the funniest climaxes in the history of comedy. Pratfalls and sight gags galore, it had me laughing hard.
I think this is the best of the series, and if they make a fourth installment, maybe they should rehire Segal.
