Contrary to popular belief, the absence of Art Metrano (who played Mauser in Police Academy 2 and 3) was not due to his fall which left him paralyzed. The fall occurred in September 1989, two years after this movie was released. See more »
Proctor's Port-o-Potty is lowered into the stadium full of people, and the housing of the unit is lifted, leaving the base and Proctor. When the music plays, Proctor stands up and you can briefly see his underwear (which he wouldn't be wearing because he was using the toilet). See more »
This is a hard Academy movie to define. The humour is generally more smutty, keeping up the standards of the original, yet it also has awful gags about people slipping on skateboards and pidgeons secreting on policemen's shoulders. There are also jokes about farting, a sure sign of desperation. On the plus side, we see the return of G.W.Bailey as Captain Harris. That's about it on the plus side. The whole film looks rushed and is mostly set at night or on grey skied days that make it look awful. Not a pleasant film to watch. However, the public, including myself, flocked to see it. But, hey, you don't know what you're gonna get until you have paid your admission.
