Leslie Nielsen returns as bumbling tough-guy detective Frank Drebin in this sequel from the zany Zucker/Abahams/Zucker (“Airplane”) production team, “Naked Gun 2½: The Smell of Fear.” The original cast is back for a story that finds Drebin pursuing villain Robert Goulet, who plots to monopolize America’s energy supply.

This film’s whirlwind of gags don’t connect as often as the original, but there are several uproarious moments. Also stars Priscilla Presley, George Kennedy and O.J. Simpson. Rated PG-13.

GRADE: B
