sadly the series made it to a movie nr.5
19 December 2012 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

sadly there is a nr.5 movie in the series about the police academy. i didn't watch the other ones (thank god?), in a long time, so i cant really tell if this one falls 100% in line with the others. the story is simple enough, too simple for my taste. the acting is real bad, and all the characters are portrayed like they only got an IQ of 50, so you really feel retarded when watching it. the humor is god awful, or in other words really really bad. all the jokes are chopped down in many small scenes, and always about a character trait from the character featured in the scene. the humor is so bad, and the editing makes it more like a really bad sketch show on TV. but one good thing is there to say about this movie. you can see on the actors that they had a fun time making the movie, and thats a good thing. it gives you a positive feeling, despite all the negative things about the movie. so i will say 3/10, because of the joy on the actors faces, and that it is sad that they didn't stop the series earlier (the first ones were decent), but even continued after this one.
