A few years ago I watched Police Academy, which became one of my favorite comedies, but I never could find any of the sequels. Even though I have been warned that these sequels are not any good, I'm still curious, I just finished Police Academy 3: Back in Training last night and even though it's not as funny as the first Police Academy film, it still has a few decent laughs. I think the ratings here on IMDb are so low because a lot of people are not giving these movies a good chance. If you wanna see these sequels, just have an open mind to it, because some of these sequels are still pretty funny. I liked having the gang back together, even good old obnoxious Zed, and they've added a few new characters to the story that are so much fun to watch.
Due to money shortage, the governor has to cut one of the two police academies in the city. The way to choose which academy is going to last is a competition, to see which pulls out the best trained policemen. So the class of 1984 is back to help their academy out and help train new recruits, including our villain from the second Police Academy, Zed, has decided to clean up his act while picking on a poor little nerd, Sweetchuck, but end up being quite the funny pair together. But the other academy is going to do whatever they can to sabotage and win the competition away from Lasard's Police Academy.
No, this isn't by any means a pure comedy that has you constantly laughing, but it still delivers a few good moments. I know he is getting little obnoxious, but Michael Winslow with the voices, I loved when he was training a student and making noises like she was a bad driver, then he stopped and said "ok, if I hear any of those noises, you fail". Back in Training is worth the look if you're interested in seeing the sequels, I would recommend it, Back in Training has it's laughs, just have an open mind and have fun.
