The Naked Gun 2½: The Smell of Fear

Corrected entry: Early in the film, when Frank is at the bar (The Blue Note), he orders a Black Russian, however (less than 30 seconds later) the waiter brings him a drink that is definitely not a Black Russian. (00:18:30 - 00:19:05)

Correction: The whole scene was a series of gags. The waiter was able to produce the strong man in seconds. The fact he got a random fruity drink so quickly was just another gag.

Corrected entry: In the bathroom, Savage screws a suppressor onto a revolver. Most revolvers cannot be suppressed in this way.

Correction: While this is true, you have to consider the humor of this movie. So this can't really qualify as a mistake.

Corrected entry: Right after the zoo accident and before the dancing scene, a giraffe runs past a house and it makes a sound, but giraffes don't make any vocal sounds.

Correction: Many doors have such rubber doorstops to prevent them hitting the wall or breaking their own hinges by opening too wide, particularly heavily used doors like one in a public room like this.

Trivia: A few of the jokes featured in the movie (the scene when Frank, after falling through Habsburg's warehouse roof, first looks messy and, after smoothing his hair, is totally clean again; or the roof-top shootery with a goon less than two yards away, and always missing) were featured in the Naked Gun's prequel series, Police Squad. Frank's habit of treating every piece of cloth thrown into his face like a monster clinging on likewise originates from that series.

More trivia for The Naked Gun 2½: The Smell of Fear

Question: In the first film, Frank took on all the world leaders and proved himself to be a skilled fighter. So why is his fight scene in this film with Hector Savage so awkward and shows Frank as being a clueless fighter?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: It was also stated in the movie that Savage was a professional fighter. Therefore Frank would be no match for him.

Answer: Rule of funny.

Answer: Just because he beat up a group of people doesn't mean he can beat anybody. Hector may have been stronger whereas the leaders may have been a bit weaker than him.
