You have the right to remain silent. You have the right to a court appointed attorney. You have the right to sing the blues. You have the right to cable TV... that's very important. You have the right to sublet. You have the right to paint the walls... no loud colors.

This is a weary sequel (and there are still five more to go!). In the grand tradition of follow-ups, the basic formula is repeated in a different setting. Naturally, the graduates of the academy are more likely to fall in with the undesirables of Pete Lasard's precinct especially since the insane urban warlord Zed (Bob Goldthwait, a sort of unkempt Giovanni Ribisi) is little more than that. The usual political machinations are supplied by Art Metrano as the snide Lt Mauser and plenty of jokes are recycled, in case you didn't get them last time. And no, the extraordinary sound machine Jones (Michael Winslow) doesn't actually speak in this one either. 3/10
