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 Lieutenant 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

Uh, Raquel, just a second, I just had a thought. This show is being seen all over the world. I was thinking, if we could all just send good thoughts, transmit them through these cameras here, to the elected leader of China, Wing Wa Woo Tong, so that they might finally be nice. Thank you.
And the winner is...
Uh Raquel, so many go to bed hungry in this nation, yet cat food is full of tuna! I can't help but think each time I go to the zoo and see those porpoises, crammed into those tiny...

A number of scenes were deleted (later added) for network TV viewing. Some of the scenes are:
An extended scene of Drebin and Norberg discussing a TV soap opera when Norberg and Ed come to visit.
An extra scene at the Karlson Clinic where after Drebin's encounter with the dominatrix, he is shown afterwards in a wheelchair being pushed to the desk by a male nurse (Michael Boatman) who asks him to fill out the visitor forms. When Drebin is writing down his name, he sees Tanya receive a phone call and tries to get near her to listen in. When the male nurse returns, Drebin hides on a gurney covering himself with a sheet and the male nurse inadvertently wheels the gurney into an O.R. which says "penile implants."
The scenes of Drebin's arrival undercover at the prison show additional prisoners in cells, including a real lion, and a mime in a cell with no bars and mimicking holding onto the imaginary bars.
The scene in the cell with Rocco Dillon and Tyrone where Drebin introduces himself as Nick "The Slasher" McGerk, Junior, II saying that he's killed the previous McGerks and more dialogue of him insulting Rocco.
During Drebin's encounter with the big hairy convict in the shower, the hairy convict comments how pretty Drebin is, and Drebin rubs the hairy convict's back with soap as a token of appreciation.
Drebin and Rocco's escape tunnel digging is longer, featuring them disposing of the dirt in various jars in the mess hall, as well as feeding it to a long line of convicts during meal times.
A scene with Drebin talking with the prison chaplain (Eric Christmas) about his life of crime.
An extra scene of the getaway. After Drebin and Rocco accidentally come up under a funeral, they dig more and Drebin sticks his head up on a football field, with the football ready for a free kick right on top of his head.
Obviously this isn't meant to be a comedy classic. It's merely the third volume in the 'The Naked Gun' series, and the old gang is at it again and there are no surprises in that, but this being said it should still be accountable for what it actually is as a film, while keeping it in context. This is actually fine to watch for about the first hour, but then one needs to really get complacent with it to get through the rest of it. The jokes are cheesy but fun, but it definitely becomes a bit tedious even with good intentions from the viewer as we're given more and more of the same, and the movie would've benefited from a little bit more material to fill this fun little ride up. 5.5/10.
