9.7/10. This is the first trilogy where I find all three movies equally good. Leslie Nielsen was one of the greatest comedic actors of all time. He takes every scene the way a painter or composer does, slowly making his masterpiece. I would say the Naked Gun franchise is one of the best and one of the most underrated ones of all time. If Siskel and Ebert liked them you know they did something right with these movies. Leslie Nielsen, a comedic legend, also inspired Angie Tribecca, is still missed.

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.
