Naked Gun2 1/2:Smell
Frequently Bought Together
What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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).
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!
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 morePublished on July 1 2002 by Daniel A Moir
