What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell of Fear is a 1991 send-up of police procedurals that is part of the Naked Gun series. This male teenage dream is filled with good-natured juvenile raunch, bare bottoms, an anatomically correct vibrator in the background, breast jokes, comic sex scenes, vaudevillian sight gags, absurdist fight scenes, shoot-outs, and a poop joke. No subject is sacred, and jokes about the disabled, child molestation, racism, homosexuality, and incest are tossed as asides, making this movie an equal-opportunity (pretend) offender. All movie conventions are reproduced, tweaked, and mocked. Everyone will know that the detectives are stupid, the villains are stock, and the violence is comic (a bomb explodes in an office building, killing many, but dopey guards think it's only a clock) -- and therein (supposedly) lies the humor. Beneath all the crudity is a pro-environmental, anti-pollution message. Expect to hear the words "f--k," "Christ," "hell," and "bitch."
