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 »

Best sequel and at least it was better then part 3
5 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

OK. here we go. This movie has the same feel of the original, which was if i say so myself, a funny movie. this one, is the best sequel and is just as funny. It's pretty much the same thing as all of the sequels but It works, it made me laugh.

The plot is, lassard is making a citizens on patrol program, which is a bunch of citizens are put through training and act like cops or something like that. I suck at remembering plots. It's a police academy sequel, It doesnt need a good plot. Our good friends Harris and Proctor try to ruin them, and some of the citizens in the movie were pretty funny.

This was the best of all of the average to bad sequels the original police academy movie got. If you liked the original or ANY of the sequels you should pick this one up. 7/10
