Continuity mistake: At the conference, when the President is announced, there is a wide shot of the crowd and you see a lot of people standing in the background against the wall. There are also several spotlights turned on. Then it cuts to the stage where Frank and the squad are walking. When it cuts back to the crowd all the people in the background are gone and the spotlights are switched off. The crowd reappears later and the spotlights are on again. (01:00:50)
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.
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.
