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?

"The Final Insult" is a enjoyable way to end "The Naked Gun" series.
22 January 2009 | by hu675See all my reviews

Now former Lieutenant Frank Drebin (Leslie Nielsen) has a tough time that he is not working with the Police Squad anymore and his wife Jane (Priscilla Presley) is now an lawyer. Although she wants a baby, he has a tough time getting her pregnant. His former partners (Oscar-Winner:George Kennedy and O.J. Simpson) wants Frank to spy on Tanya Peters (The late Anna Nicole Smith), since Tanya is involved with a hired bomb expert Rocco Dillon (Fred Ward). Which Dillon is in prison, at first Frank was supposed to get her address but he lost it. When Jane leaves him, thinking that Frank was fooling around with another woman. Frank decides to go undercover as a prisoner to get closer on Dillon. Frank knows that Dillon is planning to destroy and kill many of innocent people for a price but where ?

Directed by Peter Segal (The Nutty Professor 2:The Klumps, Anger Management, Tommy Boy) made an entertaining spoof comedy, based on the short-lived TV series back in the early 1980's. Nielsen is always an hoot in the lead. The cast seems to be having an great time. Although the reviews were mixed and at the box office was less promising than the first two but still, this was an major success on video. There's some lively cameos throughout the feature. If you are fan of these type of silly comedies or "The Naked Gun" movies, you will certainly enjoy it. Written by Pat Proft (The Naked Gun:From the Files of Police Squad!, Hot Shots! Part Deux, Scary Movie 3 & 4), David Zucker (An American Carol, High School High, Top Secret!) and Robert LoCash (CB4). (****/*****).
