The Naked Gun 2½: The Smell of Fear 1.0 stars

Busy, undiscourageable cop comedy, with helpfully low standards, and more often ingratiating than truly amusing. Particularly ingratiating in its readiness to barge onto the op-ed page, with trigger-happy views on current events, politics, ecology, education ("You're part of a dying breed, Hapsburg. Like people who can name all fifty states"). If you leave before the closing credits, you'll miss the heaviest concentration of jokes in the movie. Leslie Nielsen, Priscilla Presley, George Kennedy, O.J. Simpson, Robert Goulet; directed by David Zucker. 1991.
