Lt. Frank Drebin is back in the third instalment of the Naked Gun series. Comic twists and sexual humour around every corner and the comedy hasn't reduced since the first two Naked Guns. This film follows very similarly to the scenario of a useless person doing amazing unintentional things and gets a reputation for success. If you have seen the first two Naked Guns then you should know how silly these films can get and is exactly the reason why we are showing this!
Frank Drebin (Leslie Nielsen) is now retired from the police and settled down with his new wife Jane Spencer Drebin (Priscilla Presley) from the first Naked Gun films. However he is called back to the force for one last assignment and Jane is not happy so she then leaves Frank. Frank is joined by his usual team of Captain Ed Hocken (George Kennedy) and Nordberg (O.J. Simpson) to try to prevent a terrorist attack on the academy awards. The prime suspect is Rocco Dillon (Fred Ward) and Frank goes undercover to get his man. Jane pursues Frank after leaving him and ends up becoming a hostage of the terrorist gang. Can Frank stop Rocco Dillon and save Jane?
Most sequels don't end up as good as their predecessors, but this film is considered to be at least as good as the previous Naked Guns. All the main cast are the same so all the chemistry that made the first films great was also showing in this film. You'll also get another chance to watch Leslie Nielsen again after this film on Thursday when he also appears in Airplane!
