| "The Final Insult" is a enjoyable way to end "The Naked Gun" series.
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). (****/*****).

Crazy Credits

GEEZ, THESE CREDITS ARE LONG


Alternate Versions

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.
