One final indignity for the late, great
Leslie Nielsen: His last movie goes straight to DVD and has him in a supporting role to comic lightweight Pauly Shore.
"Stonerville," which also stars
Patrick Cavanaugh and Phil Morris, comes out Jan. 11. It doesn't figure to rank with "Airplane" or " The Naked Gun." Here's a trailer:
Nielsen died Nov. 28 at the age of 84. After his death there were reports of another final film, an animated film called "The Waterman," in which Nielsen provided a voice. That film is still seeking funding. You can read about it here.
