During the song by Sgt. Hooks and Lt. Callahan at the Policeman's Ball, the camera alternates between shots of Lassard's cadets having fun while Mauser's cadets stay in their seats and show no emotion. When it goes to a wide shot of the room, you see Mauser's cadets dancing. 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.
