Dick Steele, Agent WD-40 is assigned by his Director, to stop the evil General Rancor from destroying the world. WD-40 believed Rancor was dead and he teams up with the hot K.G.B. Agent Veronique Ukrinsky to find Rancor and save the world.
Tasting the fruit of his labour with his wife Jane, the maladroit and now retired Police Squad Lieutenant, Frank Drebin, secretly dreams of getting back in action. Before long, his old partners, Ed and Nordberg, will have to enlist the help of their loose-cannon friend, when Rocco, the deranged terrorist, intends on blowing to smithereens the annual Academy Awards ceremony. Once more, Drebin goes undercover, interrogating dangerous blonde bombshells, and putting in jeopardy his precious but fragile marriage. Are this year's Oscars doomed to disaster?Written by

When Rocco is testing the bomb in the morning in the cabin, and says, "We're going to detonate it", his mouth isn't moving with the words. See more »
Well... We shot a lot of people together. It's been great. But today I retire, so if I do any shooting now, it'll have to be within the confines of my own home. Hopefully, an intruder and not an in-law, like at my bachelor party.

The TV version changes a scene. When Frank is alone with Tanya at the Academy Awards, the theatrical & video version shows Frank, but only Tanya's shadow is seen as she stands in front of him. She removes her dress to reveal in her shadow that she's a transsexual. On the TV version, we instead see Frank kneeling by her waist and it actually shows her (not her shadow) as she removes her dress, but only her legs are shown. See more »
Frank Drebin is back , well reincarnated by a hilarious Nielsen
This is a pretty funny spoof with a unstopped string of gags which holds up almost to the final. Again Frank Drebin(Nielsen) return from retirement to help Police Squad(George Kennedy, O. J. Simpson). Drevin is back this time to save the Oscar Academy from a plot hatched by a nasty villain. The dumber law officer from Inspector Clouseau goes undercover a penitentiary where is a top terrorist named Rocco(Fred Ward). He along with his mother(Kathleen Freeman) and girlfriend(Anna Nicole Smith) are planning bomb the Academy Award ceremony . Meanwhile, his wife Jane(Priscilla Presley) is desperate for pregnant and leaves him.
This amusing picture is plenty of slapdash and slapstick, displaying lots of laughs and silly gags. This third part with the deadpan, botcher Drebin, has been planned by ZAZ, : Jim Abrahams, Jerry and David Zucker. They're known satirists with successful work and longtime collaborators and made their own comedy troupe, the Kentucky Fried theater. The parody is hilarious, continuous and absurd , though sometimes is gross-out, but some moments here and there also is intelligent and bold. However lacks the freshness of its predecessors, two prequels titled ¨From the filed of Police Squad¨ and ¨The smell of fear¨. As always, the usual cinematographic references , being an entertaining to find them out, as the parody includes: ¨The untouchables(Brian De Palma)¨ and ¨The great escape(John Sturges)¨and prison films. Habitual cameos and long invited actors, such as, James Earl Jones, R.Lee Ermey, Rachel Welch,Morgan Fairchild, Mariel Hemingway, Pia Zadora, Elliot Gould, among them. The film is professionally directed by Peter Segal. The motion picture will like to Leslie Nielsen enthusiastic and lunatic humor buffs.
