There are a couple of references to Warner Brothers production executive Bruce Berman. There is an announcement heard in the hospital, paging "Dr. Berman". Also, Mrs. Feldman is a resident of the "Berman Retirement Home", as displayed on the building's entrance sign. Due to Bruce's friendship with Police Academy creator Paul Maslansky, Bruce would later go on to be announced as executive producer for the eighth film in the franchise temporarily, when Warner Brothers & Village Roadshow were still involved.

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.
