Trivia

The flashback scene from Frank and Jane's wedding was the real ending for The Naked Gun 2½: The Smell of Fear (1991). They didn't use it on that movie, but inserted the scene on this one. At the same time, the scene featuring Frank, Jane, and Frank, Jr. getting to their house was the original ending for this movie, but since the makers thought that the boy that played Frank, Jr. didn't look funny enough, they decided to go with the hospital ending, and used this scene in the middle of the movie.

Goofs

When Frank arrives home for his "special evening," there's an old portrait hanging next to the front door. A few minutes later when Jane leaves, it's a similar, but different, portrait. See more »

Quotes

Jane Spencer: How could you!
Tanya Peters: Well, you just shove your tongue as far down his throat as you can.

Alternate Versions

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 »

"Insult" me!
17 May 2002 | by Mister-6See all my reviews

It's rare for a cop movie to combine elements from "The Untouchables", "Thelma & Louise" and "The Brady Bunch".

Unless, of course, the lead character has a tendency to run his car into parking meters.

"The Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult" brings the lofty trilogy to a close with the same old cast (Kennedy, Simpson, Presley) and slapstick antics involving a prison breakout, terrorist plot and the Oscars. And there in the center is Lt. Frank Drebin (Nielsen) on the verge of retirement and fighting with bad guys, shopping carts and Weird Al Yankovic while trying convince lovely wife Jane (Presley) that the spark in their relationship is still there.

How can you talk down a movie like this; it's as useless as putting up a tent in a windstorm, so they say. You have to enjoy stupidity, one-liners, gags and visual puns, as created by the ZAZ boys (Zucker, Abrahams, Zucker) and delivered by a cast of pros (including Fred Ward and Pia Zadora!!), all with the tone of adolescence and insanity you've come to know and love.

And if you don't, why are you reading this?

Kudos go to Anna Nicole Smith, who makes her debut in movies here in a big way (sorry) and shows she is at her best when laughing at herself. Good job, Anna.

Favorite scene? I lost count after the first 10 minutes; it's an exercise in futility, every scene will make you chuckle, laugh, guffaw, roar and/or howl with delight. Besides, why spoil the fun?

And as for Nielsen...as always, he is THE MAN! Even when throwing up in a tuba.

Ten stars for a great "Final" trip down into Dumbville. And one star more for the very last scene - classic!

Thanks, Frank.
