When police funding is cut, the Governor announces he must close one of the academies. To make it fair, the two police academies must compete against each other to stay in operation.

When the governor makes his speech about closing one of the academies, note the three people in the audience directly behind him. A little girl, a lady, and a man in a tie. When he says "Isn't that true, Commandant Mauser and Commandant Lassard?", the camera supposedly pans to them (who are seated to his left). The same three audience members are somehow directly behind them too. See more »
Police Academy 3 (1986) The inmates are now running the asylum. Mahony and company are now instructors at the place they once attend. Running out of ideas and funny situations, the film starts to repeat (ad naseum) many of the gags and punchlines from the first two films. While new characters are being added to the series, a few old one decide to leave (for good). If you notice, the bigger the star Steve Guttenberg becomes, the lesser screen time he gets. Oh well.
Slightly recommended. If the producers have thought with their heads instead of their pocket books, they should have put this series to bed instead of dragging it out and running the series until the wheels and the engine fell off.
