Leslie Nielsen continuing the formula , this time like a crazed international Agent
4 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

Leislie Nielsen again , he plays a super Agent , Dick Steele , finding in retirement , he's called for a new mission . He'll fight against General Raucov (Andy Griffith) for world control and being only helped by a beautiful spy (Nicolette Sheridan) .

The picture is the usual ¨spoof¨ or parody featured by Nielsen with similar lunatic characters , quirky roles and strange elements of the predecessors ; thus , it is surrealist , hilarious , extreme and sometimes gross-out . There're gags each fifty seconds . The film is formed by innumerable comical set-pieces and a myriad of unimaginative parodies where the wacky humor and laughs are continuous . The pioneers of these kinds of comedies are the popular trio ZAZ (Jim Abrahams , Jerry Zucker , David Zucker) but here the formula is a little worn-out . The amusement and fun result to be for finding out the numerous cinematic references that successively appear , such as : the credits title of ¨James Bond¨ movie , ¨In the line of fire¨ (Nielsen playing Clint Eastwood lookalike), ¨Pulp Fiction¨ (like Travolta), ¨Sister Act¨(performing a nun , Woopy Goldberg alike), ¨Speed¨ , ¨True Lies¨, ¨Die Hard¨, ¨Home Alone¨ , ¨Dennis the Menace¨ (where acts the same kid , Mason Gamble) and ¨Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid¨ in which acting Paul Newman-alike and riding his bicycle , he plays a bewildering scene under Burt Bacharach music with smile to roar with laughter . Besides , there are several cameos and special interventions as Pat Morita (recently deceased ), Mr.T (as A-Team member) , Alexandra Paul (Baywatch) , Hulk Hogan , Robert Culp , Fabio.. The motion picture will appeal to absurd and unruly comedy enthusiastic.
