MOSTLY ALL NEW JOKES.
Frank Drebin (Leslie Nielsen), the pride of the LAPD, has retired but is called back into action for an undercover assignment in a prison. This third chapter offers a few bright ideas, such as a spoof of The Untouchables (1987), but this is largely a disappointment – and somewhat of a freak show, considering the participation of murder suspect O.J. Simpson and former Playmate Anna Nicole Smith (who ended up fighting with her late husband’s children over his billions). Nielsen does what he’s supposed to, but the Academy Awards showdown is too protracted.

Quote: “Like a blind man at an orgy, I was going to have to feel my way through.” (Nielsen)
