Trivia

Although everyone (even in subsequent Police Academy movies), refers to Tim Kazurinsky's character as "Sweetchuck", his name is actually "Schewchuk". This is evidenced on the sign outside his store. The name is a reference to the set decorator of the original Police Academy (1984) film, Steve Shewchuk. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning of the movie when Mauser is addressing everyone at roll call, Officer Vinnie Schtulman is present sitting at one of the tables. Later the same day, after Mahoney shows up (he was getting a new uniform), he is sent to pick Vinnie up at home and Vinnie is just getting ready for work. See more »

Revenge of the 80's: The multiple sequels.
9 January 2005 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Police Academy 2 (1985) was quickly rushed into production to capitalize upon the surprisingly successful first film. The recruits have finally graduated from the academy and are now assigned positions throughout the city. Crime is rampant and the people are afraid to leave their homes because of a local crime wave. A group of young punks (led by Bobcat Goldwait) have recently assaulted the chief of police (Howard Hesseman). With the city in turmoil and with his job being threatened by the Chief's right hand man, he turns to the new recruits to help clean up the city.

I hate it when they franchise a movie and tone down the raunchy humor and crude manners, elements that made the first one a success. The movie is funny but it's not as good as the first film. Sadly the creativity and humor of the Police Academy films goes down the eventual slippery slope. By the fifth film the series becomes very unwatchable and extremely redundant. Even though it's a step down from the first film, it's still entertaining.
