This is the third sequel to Police Academy, where basically the filmmakers recycle the main plot from Police Academy 3. Instead of training new police cadets, Sgt. Mahoney (Steve Guttenberg) and company are assigned to train a group of civilian volunteers to fight crime.
While the acting is OK, I thought the plot lacks any captivating action and is consumed by the same old gags and mediocre jokes. You might get a few chuckles here and there from the ongoing jokes, but you probably won't find much thrills in the action-less plot.
The subplots involving Zed (Bobcat Goldthwait) and Laura's (Corinne Bohrer) fling and reporter Claire Mattson (Sharon Stone) were not elaborated upon and some of the more memorial characters were only on screen for a very short time, including Nogata (Brian Tochi), Kirkland (Colleen Camp) and Commandant Lassard (George Gaynes).
Overall, it's not a very exciting sequel. Stick with Parts Two or Three.
