NAKED GUN: Those screw-loose Airplane! creators have done it again! Leslie Nielsen stars as Police Squad's own granite-jawed, rock-brained cop Frank Drebin, who bumbles across a mind-control scheme to assassinate Queen Elizabeth. Priscilla Presley, O.J. Simpson, a stuffed beaver, two baseball teams and an odd assortment of others join the wacko goings-on and blow the laugh-o-meter to smithereens. NAKED GUN 2 & 1/2: Leslie Nielsen returns as the intrepid (and accident-prone) Lt. Frank Drebin in Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell of Fear, "un film de David Zucker." This second feature film from the "Police Squad!" series finds Drebin as a guest at a White House dinner, receiving an award for shooting his 1,000th drug dealer, although he admits to shooting only 998 he ran over the last two in his car. ("Luckily, they turned out to be drug dealers"). Also at the White House dinner is energy czar Dr. Albert S. Meinheimer (Richard Griffiths), whom President George Bush (John Roarke) has chosen to start a new national energy policy. Since Meinheimer believes in promoting alternative energy resources, the evil leaders of the polluting energy industries (coal, oil, and nuclear poweror the lobby groups SMOKE, SPILL and KABOOM) are horrified at Bush's choice. Joining together with arch-villain Quentin Hapsburg (Robert Goulet), they plan to kidnap the real Meinheimer and substitute a fake Meinheimer in his place who will enact energy policy according to the dictates of the energy lobby. Drebin becomes deeply involved in the conspiracy when he runs into his ex-girl friend Jane (Priscilla Presley), who is not only Meinheimer's public relations director but also Hapsburg's current paramour. NAKED GUN 33 & 1/3: The further misadventures of bumbling Los Angeles police Lieutenant Frank Drebin (Leslie Nielsen) are chronicled in this third installment in the popular Naked Gun comedy series. This by-the-numbers entry begins with Drebin as a happily retired house-husband called back into action when an evil terrorist organization threatens Los Angeles. As in the other Naked Gun films, this plot is merely an excuse for an unhinged, rapid-fire succession of gags, ranging from satirical lampoons of cop movies to broad slapstick, all played with a perfectly straight face. Nielsen provides his familiar combination of complete witlessness and oblivious dignity as Drebin, and the film attempts to match the earlier Naked Gun films and the Police Squad! television series that inspired them in the number of jokes. However, the film proved less successful than its predecessors, as some viewers found that the freewheeling comic style of the earlier films had solidified into its own formula, now mildly entertaining but disappointingly predictable.

The Blu-ray THE NAKED GUN (the first movie) has much improved video and audio compared to the dvd and includes the special features commentary found on the dvd.
The Blu-ray THE NAKED 2 1/2: THE SMELL OF FEAR has the same video quality as the dvd (which is only average quality), and it does not have the special features commentary found on the dvd.
The Blu-ray THE NAKED GUN 33 1/3: THE FINAL INSULT has much improved video compared to the dvd, but it does not have the special features commentary found on the dvd.
Overall, the Blu-ray NAKED GUN set is an improvement over the dvd set in terms of improved video, but if you want the special commentaries, which are relatively informative and funny, the dvd set is recommended to go with the Blu-ray set.
A stunningly incredible amount of SUBTITLED LANGUAGES and DUBBED AUDIO to choose from. Probably the most I've seen available for a movie. This makes the fun shareability among cross-cultural friends/family possible. Watched with a Brazilian friend (which it comes in both dubbed Portuguese AND subtitled Portuguese) and the subtitle timing on-screen with the gags was perfect so that neither of us was laughing too fast or too slow than the other. (A seeming rarity for subtitles movies). Keep in mind that some of the word-play jokes and "puns" don't translate as smoothly/cleverly (or at all) from English.
2nd disc, "Naked Gun 2 1/2" was defective and would freeze/skip forward twice: Chapter 3 (10:02-11:10) and Chapter 14 (1:17:40-1:18:16). I tried playing it through 4 different times in 2 different Blu-ray players and got the same results - at the same exact frames.
Also good-to-know that the DVD set "Police Squad TV and Movie Collection" on Amazon for $8.77 actually has MORE special features than this Blu-ray version. The only Commentary track available for the "Naked Gun Trilogy Collection on Blu-ray" is the first film. But the Police Squad/Movie DVD set has commentary tracks for all of them, plus additional special features for Police Squad.

There are some affinities between the two productions but the "Naked Gun" for me rather overruns its ventures in timescale and extremes of violent nonsense.
Leslie Nielsen has aged visibly since the earlier series and not quite to his credit. (Fortunately, Nielsen hasn't lost his skill in running his car into stationary items such as waste bins.)
In short, I would have preferred a substantial increase in the number of episodes for "Police Squad" thereby rendering the larger production unnecessary.
Still, we cannot undo what has been done and, by Timothy (sic: Paul Temple), I'll no be seen to be carping matey!
Excellently funny from beginning to end highly recommended
(While writing this I just read that a remake is in the works. Please no!).
