The Naked Gun 2 1/2

OJ is still free. Leslie Nielsen is still alive (and co-star George Kennedy), Robert Goulet has sadly passed on, and Priscilla Presley was looking oddly preserved on her recent appearance on Dancing With the Stars. None of which should detract from your enjoyment of this 1991 cop spoof by the Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker comedy cartel. It's the second installment in the comedy series launched by their Police Squad TV show. Three movies was probably about the right number, and this one is at least as funny as the other two. To quote Lt. Frank Drebin, "We've got a long road ahead of us. It's like having sex. It's a painstaking and arduous task that seems to go on and on forever, and just when you think things are going your way, nothing happens." (PG-13) BRIAN MILLER.
