Lou the dog was played by a large Newfoundland dog called Kodiak. The dog was very stubborn, often dictating how many takes he wanted for a shoot. If he felt like he had had enough of a particular re-take, he would stop performing, to the letdown of his trainers Rob Bloch and Kim Lindemeon. However, he would later save the life of his owner Kathy Cullen, by alerting her to a dangerous fire that was burning in her home. Kodiak subsequently earned the Newfoundland club's prestigious "Versatility" award. See more »
(at around 1h 7 mins) Right after Mahoney starts infiltrating the gang, and he's encountering Jones and the other cop, he tells Jones to kick the elder gentleman, then pulls him off all of a sudden. If you listen very closely, you actually hear him say "Jones", but obviously in the excitement, neither of the gang members notice and put 2+2 together. See more »
After this sequel, Police Academy dried up what little laughs it already had!
Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment was the last film to be remotely funny out of the further Academy films. No wonder almost every single orignal cast member dropped after the 4th film. My favorite character in this film however, and the only being who made it funny, was Bob Goldthwait. He and his raspy voice are hilarious, and make this film worth watching. I saw it on at 1 am once. I guess it's the only time slot the channel figure that no one will be watching. Anyway, it's worthy of a one time viewing, as the first, though they are both rip-offs of the film stripes. But still, see 1 & 2 once, and don't bother with the rest. 2.5/5 stars.
