An appropriately funny and silly conclusion to the police squad spoof series
Retirement has not been good for Frank Drebin. His marriage is on the rocks and he feels emasculated as he no longer has the power of the law or the ability to shot bad guys. When he is offered the chance to help out with some undercover work, Frank jumps at the chance – even though Jane storms out. When the info Frank finds points to imprisoned bomb expert Rocco Dillon he agrees to go into the jail and infiltrate his gang in order to find out his plan.

Despite the fact that the second part was a little bit of a dip from part 1, Debin was brought back for a final insult and managed to produce a very enjoyable conclusion to the series. Opening with one of the best moments from all three films (a hilarious expansion of The Untouchable train station scene) the film keeps up a very consistent tone that has plenty of big laughs as well as lots of little things that will keep you chuckling. Its not that the film has no misses (it does) but they are covered by the sheer weight of hits that it includes. The plot is fairly simple but is well done to include a few basic set ups – the prison, the break out and the Oscars; each part is very funny if you're in the mood for it and, hey, even if you're not it is pretty infectious.

The writing is good – it is easy to forget how hard it is to write a good spoof, but recent attempts have shown had easy it is to misjudge the film and just be silly rather than funny. Another big part of the film working is yet another great performance from Leslie Neilsen, who makes it all look so easy! Ward is a great addition to the cast and is much better than the bad guy from the second film – Ward plays it gruff and straight, making it all the funnier. Presley is so-so, with her character kind of shoe-horned into the film to her detriment, but she does have some good moments. Freeman is good value and Smith, well, Smith has a good body and that's about it – but fair play to her for sending herself up like that, it's not like she needed the money after all.

Overall, this is a very enjoyable film as long as you are in the mood. Even if you aren't roaring with laughter you'll still be chuckling along. The material is hardly the height of wit or intelligence and some viewers may find it to be all a bit broad but fans of the genre will love it and get plenty of laughs from the material and the mostly good performances.

Trivia

After the credit for the weapons handler, there's a credit for the "concealed weapons handler", Leon Czolgosz. Czolgosz was the man who assassinated U.S. President William McKinley in 1901 by shooting him with a pistol he had concealed in an arm bandage.


Quotes

Rocco Dillon: Any last words before I throw you off?
Jane Spencer: Yes. Don't do it.


Goofs

When Rocco's mother goes to talk with Rocco in prison, the cameraman is vaguely reflected on the first prison visitor cell.


Crazy Credits

The traditional opening credits show the top of the police car going through a pinball game and down a water slide (among other wacky places) before being crushed by a Jurassic Park (1993)-style dinosaur.


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.
