Goofs

At the beginning of the movie, we see Harris inadvertently walk into the shower room after speaking with Mahoney. There is an immediate scream of surprise and Harris exits the room drenched. Later on in another scene with Harris, we see that the showers are in individual, unmistakable shower stalls and are a distance from the shower room door. Harris would have (1) recognized this as a shower room and (2) even if he hadn't, there's no shower head directly inside the shower room door to walk under right after entering the room as Harris evidently did.

The last Police Academy with Steve Guttenberg

Commandant Eric Lassard comes up with an idea to recruit civilian volunteers to the police force.The program is called Citizens on Patrol (COP).Captain Harris is very much against the idea and wants to see it fail.Police Academy 4: Citizens on Patrol (1987) is directed by Jim Drake.This is the last part where Steve Guttenberg stars as Mahoney.Of course we can't tell yet if he will be seen in one more part in the future.Then there are those familiar faces Bubba Smith, Michael Winslow, David Graf, Tim Kazurinsky, Leslie Easterbrook, Marion Ramsey, Brian Tochi, Lance Kinsey and George Gaynes.G. W. Bailey makes a return as Capt. Thaddeus Harris again.George R. Robertson is Hurst.Bobcat Goldthwait does his crazy Zed again.Corinne Bohrer plays his love interest Laura.Sharon Stone, before her bigger stardom, plays Claire Mattson.Derek McGrath plays Butterworth.Scott Thomson plays Chad Copeland.Billie Bird plays the tough old lady Mrs. Lois Feldman.David Spade is seen on a skateboard playing Kyle Ault.Backer, remembered from Fast Times at Ridgemont High, is his buddy Arnie.Also Tony Hawk does a cameo.The late Tab Thacker plays Tommy "House" Conklin.Randall 'Tex' Cobb is Zack.The Kirkland family is there again with Colleen Camp, Andrew Paris, Arthur Batanides and Jackie Joseph.The movie has a lot of fun stuff, even though not all of the jokes work.But I really liked Zed getting all romantic with that cute chick.And Jones doing some ninja action.And all the action including hot air balloons and airplanes in the end.The rap song by Michael Winslow and the L.A. Dream Team is really neat.
