The city is crumbling. The worst precinct is run by Pete Lassard (Howard Hesseman). He is given 6 recruits by his brother from the police academy; Carey Mahoney (Steve Guttenberg), Hightower (Bubba Smith), Tackleberry (David Graf), Larvell Jones (Michael Winslow), Doug Fackler (Bruce Mahler), and squeaky voice Laverne Hooks (Marion Ramsey). Meanwhile Lt. Mauser (Art Metrano) is sabotaging their efforts in a bid to get the Captain's job. Bobcat Goldthwait plays the gang leader Zed.
This is mostly unfunny. There are some slapstick fun, but it's all very fleeting. Gluing Mauser's hair was one of those moments, but it feels like it's living off of the original's goodwill. I did find that the recruits are too scattered. There is some great comradery about everybody forced together in the original. As for Bobcat, I'm fine with his ridiculous character. It fits the movie. The problem is a basic need for more funny laughs.
