For #47 of the #DLMChallenge #365moviesin365days on March 30th I watched: The Naked Gun 2 and 1/2: The Smell of Fear.
Leslie Nielsen does it again.
Again, I ask myself, “Why have I never experienced this gem before?” Much like the first one, Naked Gun 2 1/2 made me laugh, even all by myself.
They don’t make parody movies like this anymore. Even the men (you’ll see below) who made these classics, can’t simply parody things; they must include extraneous pop culture personalities and “current” headlines.
