Shooting in Los Angeles was more expensive for this sequel than for the first film, according to producer Paul Maslansky. "Not because of the city officials; they provide every co-operation. It's the merchants and the property owners who can really hit you. There's so much filming going on that they ask a lot of money for location sites, parking, etc." See more »
(at around 57 mins) In the Japanese restaurant scene, the teppanyaki chef greets Pete Lassard (Howard Hesseman) by saying "ohayo gosaimasu, ohayo. Good evening." "Ohayo gosaimasu" is Japanese for "good morning." "Ohayo" is a less formal way to say the same thing. See more »
The crew of the first "PA" movie are back! Carey Mahoney(Steve Guttenberg), Moses Hightower(Bubba Smith), Eugene Tackleberry(David Graf, 1950-2001), Laverne Hooks(Marion Ramsey), Larvelle Jones(Michael Winslow), and all the others from the original. This one is really of the hook. It got some great scenes here I really like. Tackleberry mentions his sex life to the others, so when he's partner with a female officer, you see what I mean. However, each one of them have a flair for guns. That's a great start there. Then there's a scene where Jones goes kung fu cinema on the bad guys. If you thought his sound effects on the first on was something, the fight scene is really something to remember by. Then there's a person in the department who is worse than Harris(G.W. Bailey), it's Mauser(Art Merano). The gang got him good when Jones switched the shampoo with the epoxy, and they have him leaving the shower, exposed. The real challenge is when they took out the gang who are running rampant all over the city. It's a surprise when they got Zeb(Bob "Bobcat" Goldwait) to join the force, and BIGFOOT as the honeymoon vehicle? What a hoot! I liked the movie very well. 4 out of 5 stars!
