During the scene at Sweetchuck's store after the shootout, when Sweetchuck is trying to escape before being tackled by Hightower, the guy who tackles Sweetchuck is so obviously not Bubba Smith. Much shorter and lighter set, and considering Bubba Smith was an ex-NFL player. See more »

Tamer, yet still fun to watch!
12 October 2007 | by (WILMINGTON, NC) – See all my reviews

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!
