Buy it or sell it! Best of all, TRASH IT!
20 December 1998 | by See all my reviews

Your hard life will never be complete without another stupid comedy movie from the late 80s that offers plenty of terrible nonsense. Michael Winslow didn't provide enough of the usual noises he was famous for in the POLICE ACADEMY series, which didn't matter at all. Everything else is substandard as always. Before investing interest in BUY & CELL, consider watching Comedy Central's lame-duck movies and decide for yourself.
