The first three Police Academy films were brilliant and extremely funny. Police Academy 4 was unexceptional.
It does have it's good points; we see the return of Harris, who is now a Captain and Zed continues his crazy antics but there's nothing particularly funny or memorable in this film. The first three films had you laughing again and again but Part 4 was lacking anything truly funny.
The ending was a bit of a letdown compared to the climaxes for the first three films.
It's also goodbye to Steve Guttenberg as Carey Mahoney who quit the series after this film.
Police Academy 4 was painfully average. It will probably be a disappointment to fans of the first three films.
