Dec 28thNaked Gun 33 and a Third: The Final Insult*
US 1994. Paramount. 82m.

Impotent married cop Frank Drebin comes out of retirement to foil a terrorist bomb plot at the Academy Awards.
Third zany outing of this series, sending up White Heat, Thelma and Louise, The Bodyguard and others, without too many knowing references and plenty of funny moments, although the plot is largely an irrelevance. Given the story, and some of the participants involved, the film has a rather curious echo of events to come about it.
