Trivia

The scene on the speedboat where Lt. Callahan sings "The Ride of the Valkyries" was not in the script. Director Alan Myerson laughed so hard at Leslie Easterbrook's vocal improvisation between takes, that not only did Leslie and a cameraman have to grab Alan to prevent him from falling off the boat, but Alan also decided to use the opera singing as part of the scene itself.

Goofs

Three goons traverse the gap between two buildings by shooting a grappling hook device, securing the line at their end first. You hear the word "Go!" telling the first to go, then "Go" for the second man, then "Go" for the third. You should only have heard the "Go" twice, as the last one wouldn't have told himself to go, and it was said by the same voice so no-one else could've told him to "Go". Plus when the second one was going across, from the camera angle looking back to the balcony they came from, no one was waiting for their turn. The camera angle switches again, well after the second guy left, and you see the third guy set off from the balcony. See more »

Not the worst of the bunch
4 May 2013 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

"Assignment: Miami Beach" is the first one in the franchise that doesn't have Steve Guttenberg, and I've got mixed feelings about that. In one way it's sort of a blessing, because we can finally spend some quality time with Lassard in this one. George Gaynes has always been the best actor of any installment's cast, so it's nice to see a sequel where everything revolves around him. Granted, all he really gets to do is have people fall over a bunch of times, but somehow he still makes it work. On the other hand, the movie clearly misses a decent "straight man" to counterbalance all the oddballs. I guess that was new guy Matt McCoy's task, but given that the guy has no screen presence whatsoever and barely made the final cut it doesn't quite work. Overall though, I didn't hate this. I mean, they do the same seven or eight bits they do in all the other ones, but here they do them on a different location! Michael Winslow does his Bruce Lee schtick for the fifth time in five movies, but now on a different location! I was sorta surprised Miami didn't have a Blue Oyster Bar, to be honest. "Police Academy 5" is not the greatest movie you'll ever see, but it'll give you about what you would expect.
