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

The official movie poster depicts Michael Winslow with a moustache, despite him not having one in the film. This same goof was made in Police Academy 4: Citizens on Patrol. See more »

I shat myself watching this one. It was great!
28 March 2012 | by (New Brighton) – See all my reviews

Amusing golf ball slippage indeed. I split my pant laughing. Funny noise man- I shat myself. Tall man - I burst my kidney. Quiet woman who shouts at the end - I leaked urine with laughter. Gun man who likes guns - I burst my colon and shat myself: so amusing.

This was was notable for the silly men slipping on golf balls and for Captain Harris' trouser falling down in the airport.

I am laughing still. Laughing, soiling, leaking urine and reminiscing about this pant splitter of a movie. I love it.

I shall recommend it to all of you as one big mother of a pant splitter. You will laugh, cry, soil, split and above all leak at this movie.
