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 »
When Mauser is thrown outside nude in public, you can briefly see his white underwear. However, this is applicable only to the open-matte full-screen transfer for the home video release. When presented in its original aspect ratio, this detracting detail is not visible. See more »
Police Academy 2 Their First Assignment is filled with non stop laughs from start to finish honestly I enjoyed this movie more than it's sequels because after wards it got a bit boring. This time around we see Police Academy graduates Carey Mahoney (Guttenberg) and his friends Jones (Winslow), Hooks (Ramsey), Hightower (Smith), gun loving Tackleberry (Graf), and Fackler (Mahler) assigned to the 16th precinct to help stop a gang led by Zed (Goldthwait) that's terrorizing the neighborhood. Meanwhile Lieutenant Mauser (Metrano) does all he can to prevent the new recruits from succeeding if all fails he'll replace Pete Lassard (Hesseman) the brother of Commadant Lassard (Gaynes) as captain. So the group fights back with slapstick humor and crazy antics, along the way Tackleberry falls in love with fellow officer and also gun lover Kathleen Kirkland (Camp)It was so funny seeing Mahoney get revenge on Mauser by switching the shampoo with epoxy resin made me laugh so hard.
