The old Commandant Lassard, leader of the Police Academy (1984), goes to Florida to receive an award. In the city arrives also the cynic Captain Harris who wants to take Lassard's job. ... See full summary »
New rules enforced by the Lady Mayoress mean that sex, weight, height and intelligence need no longer be a factor for joining the Police Force. This opens the floodgates for all and sundry to enter the Police Academy, much to the chagrin of the instructors. Not everyone is there through choice, though. Social misfit Mahoney has been forced to sign up as the only alternative to a jail sentence and it doesn't take long before he falls foul of the boorish Lieutenant Harris. But before long, Mahoney realises that he is enjoying being a police cadet and decides he wants to stay... while Harris decides he wants Mahoney out! Written by
Just before Mahoney catches up with Thompson and is chastised for pranking her, there is a public address announcement, requesting that a "Lieutenant Hoffman, report immediately to the infirmary." This is a reference to cast member Brant von Hoffman (Kyle Blankes). See more »
When the man with the feather in his hat takes Blankes and Copeland's guns during the riot, their names are clearly printed on the butt of the guns. However, when he raises one of the guns to put it in Lt. Harris' face, there is nothing printed on the butt. See more »
It turns out that the mayor of a city is wanting to have a better Police force and so opens up a more spaces in the Police Academy so that more people may apply. It turns out that the new applicants are a bunch of losers, wackos, and other various people that just don't fit in.
The whole film is very funny. The characters are normal but very different making them look like complete misfits against each other. But the show is stolen by G.W. Bailey who plays the mean but brilliant Lieutenant Harris.
The movie is a very funny and promising film that is lots of fun. ****
