Product Description

Amazon.ca

It's more of Leslie Nielsen's Lt. Frank Drebin, the bumbling cop from the old Police Squad! television series. This time, Drebin uncovers a plot--led by supervillain Robert Goulet!--to sabotage America's energy policy. The jokes don't stick as well as those of the first film (Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!), but there are some very funny slapstick moments, including several involving former First Lady Barbara Bush (played by an actress, of course). --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars Halt! Police Squad! Jan. 12 2004
Format:DVD
Unlike most sequels, Naked Gun 2  goes above and beyond the spectacular first movie. Priscilla Presley just kept getting hotter and more beautiful as the series went on. Leslie Neilson, the modern day king of physical comedy is up to his old hijinx as Lt. Frank Dremond. This time Frank is after the masterminds who wish to bury the thought of clean energy and let the oil companies continue to give us high prices and pollution.
Gags that make the whole movie worth it.....
1. The shower/assassin scene. What a beautiful duet as he adjusts his silencer!
2. The Blue lounge, to include no Black Russians!
3. The Wistler's Mother birthmark. Stays on even with a sander!
4. A dinner with President Bush (watch those doors and lobster claws)
5. The final scene with hanging Barbera!
This is entertainment folks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Smell of Comedy Aug. 11 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The second installment to the adventures of Frank Drebin (Leslie Nielsen) and Police Squad/Naked Gun series is just as funny as the first film (and forgotten tv show). There is an underlying theme in this comedy about environmental issues and there is a story and plot with all the pratfalls,nonsense, and hilarity. Again, the producers pick an unlikely actor to play the villian (Ricardo Montalban in the first) and this time it's Robert Goulet as Quentin Hapsburg behind a plot to deter President Bush's policy for a cleaner USA. The real treasure is everytime Frank Drebin (Nielsen) says one of his many asinine lines, the camera switches to Hapsburg (Goulet) and his look of bewilderment is worth the price of admission. The supporting roles are equally funny. O.J. Simpson as Nordberg has a more prominent role than in the first (although in the first he set up the Nordberg character beautifully). George Kennedy as Ed found a second career in comedy equal to that of Nielsen, and Priscilla Presley is up to the task of keeping up with all the hijinx. Guest roles are filled by some of Nielsen's contemporaries who have played similar type guest roles in various 60's and 70's tv shows and movies (Tim O'Conner, Lloyed Bochner etc.) The films are probably a little marred by the fact that OJ Simpson is in the cast, but his Nordberg character is hilarious as with the rest of the film. Overall a very funny film with the Zucker brand of comedy. Note: Classic Line- Commissioner Brumford (Jacqueline Brookes) after getting a call that animals escaped from the zoo as a result of a Drebin blunder... "Do you realise that this city is being overrun by baboons?" Drebin (Nielsen) "Well, isn't that the fault of the voters?". Also, a classic surprise scene: An in-joke by Lloyed Bochner (as Baggett) and a certain classic TWILIGHT ZONE episode "To Serve Man" in which he appeared in years ago.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fairly funny May 4 2003
Format:DVD
This is the second film based on the short-lived TV series "Police Squad". The first is a classic. This one liberally borrows gags from the TV show that inspired it, and that sums up my problem with the film: an overall lack of inspiration.
There are some very funny segments, including director David Zucker's hilarious send-up of his brother Jerry's "Ghost". But this movie just isn't as consistently funny as it's predecessor. This is really Leslie Nielsen's last funny performance in a spoof-comedy. After this, he would resort to constant and shameless mugging. In fact, one of the faults with this second Naked Gun film is that David Zucker allows some winking at the audience to creep in. These films are much better when played completely straight.
The DVD isn't exactly packed with features. There is a funny group commentary and that's about it. Some have complained that the scenes used for the TV broadcast version aren't included. It would've been nice if Paramount had included them as Deleted Scenes (though they are NOT good enough to warrant inclusion in the actual film).

5.0 out of 5 stars Something Smells Here... Aug. 13 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Leslie Nielson is back as Frank Drebin, the incompetent cop who somehow always manages to get his guy. This time he and his Police Squad pals are in Washington D.C. causing all kinds of chaos, always unintentional.
As with the first "Naked Gun" movie, this sequel is slapstick comedy at its funniest. Every line, every move, every shot is loaded with jokes and sight gags. Everytime you watch this movie, you will find something that you hadn't seen before, and it will make you laugh.
Sometime after the end of the first movie, Frank Drebin and Jane Spencer (again wonderfully played by Priscilla Presley) broke up and went their own ways. As fate would have it, they both end up in Washington D.C., with Jane working at The Institute and Frank investigating a bombing there. Through the course of his investigation, Frank manages to free the animals from the zoo, swim in raw sewage, and make out with First Lady Barbara Bush.
The opening scene of a formal dinner at the White House, where Frank Drebin is a guest of honor for having made his 3,000th drug kill (accidentally, of course), is one of the funniest comedy scenes to have ever been made. This scene sets the tone for the movie, which doesn't disappoint at all.
If you are into comedy, especially slapstick comedy, then this is one of the best movies you could ever see.

This movie is far less era sensitive than its predecessor, and just about anyone should be able to understand the humor behind the Smell of Fear. Read more

For all its potential, "Naked Gun 2 1/2" is nothing more than a weak retread of the original. Read more

I actually did like this move quite a bit, and it was amazingly funny, but it had a few too many man-gets-hit-by-something-and-falls jokes for me. Read more
