Tasting the fruit of his labor with his wife Jane Spencer (Priscilla Presley), the maladroit and now retired Police Squad Lieutenant, Frank Drebin (Leslie Nielsen), secretly dreams of getting back in action. Before long, his old partners, Ed Hocken (George Kennedy) and Nordberg (O.J. Simpson), will have to enlist the help of their loose-cannon friend, when Rocco (Fred Ward), the deranged terrorist, intends on blowing the annual Academy Awards ceremony to smithereens. Once more, Drebin goes undercover, interrogating dangerous blonde bombshells, and putting his precious, but fragile marriage in jeopardy. Are this year's Oscars doomed to disaster?Written by
In the early 2000s, David Zucker and Pat Proft wrote a script for a fourth The Naked Gun movie, with the working title "The Naked Gun 444.4", which would have given Drebin a younger, female sidekick. However, Zucker and Proft instead ended up working on Scary Movie 3 (2003), Scary Movie 4 (2006), and Scary Movie 5 (2013). See more »

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.
I have to say that this is one of the greatest comedy trilogies I have ever seen. Leslie Neilson has never stopped with the laughter and his fearless performance as Frank. Presilla does a fantastic job and her Thelma and Louise with Ellen Green was just memorable and fun to watch. OJ Simpson, the "downfall" I like to call it, because three months later came the murder trials.
Anna Nicole Smith was actually amusing in this film, I loved the crying game parody. There are a lot of great spoofs and jokes in the film. I think anyone who needs a good laugh or loves the Naked Gun movies should watch 33 1/3, it's just guaranteed of a good time.
