Verdict on Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult
Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult is the final instalment of the trilogy. Seeing Frank coming back into action after retirement and getting back into action taking down a dangerous criminal.
In this adventure, we get even more of the same, only it ends up being even less funny than the previous two movies. It follows the same tune and really just doesn’t do anything fresh. Nothing hits this time around and by the end of the film, you will be glad the series is over.
Final Thoughts – Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult is a poor finish to a weak franchise.
