Trivia

The book that Captain Harris is seen holding whilst "congratulating" Commandant Lassard on his mandatory retirement is a hardback copy of "3 Cheers for Me", the first novel in the Bandy Papers series written by Donald Jack. See more »

Goofs

The plane they take off in to go to Miami is a DC-10 200, while they plane they land in Miami is a DC-10 300. The difference is noticeable because of the presence of a third set of main gear when they land, which is absent when they take off. See more »

Police Academy 5: Assignment: Miami Beach (1988)
29 December 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Choosing plot over simply adding in numerous characters proves to be the downfall of the Police Academy series. Without Guttenberg there's no clear anchor for the film. We get the clichéd and simple (though still charming) side characters in abundance. Matt McCoy tries to fill Guttenberg's shoes, but we're not buying it. Callahan gets a bit more screen time which is always nice, and a Miami setting does her character justice. The final scenes of the series have included foot chases, airplanes, jet skis.etc. So now we have a hovercraft chase. Gaynes has more to do, but people such as Winslow are just on repeat. It's amazing that they will try the kung-fu voice over joke 5 films in a row and expect it to work. Not a difficult watch, and it does have an alligator fight, but this vehicle is low on fuel.
