Consensus: Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult can't help but be sporadically funny thanks to Leslie Nielsen's dependably solid work, but it's still a steep comedown from the original.

Silly enough to make you laugh sometimes in spite of yourself -- at least if you're feeling like a little boy.

Manages to be not only still funny but energetically slapped together and occasionally inventive.

It occurred to me, watching the film, that what Leslie Nielsen and Priscilla Presley do here is not easy, and is done well.

Alex Sandell

And so we come to the final entry in the Naked Gun series. Is it becoming tired at this point? You betcha. To be fair, this sequel is only slightly better than… More
