Storyline

A string of business robberies have taken place in the city's Wilson Heights neighborhood, all done by the same three crooks. Captain Thaddeus Harris is no longer in the same precinct with a certain group of cops that he doesn't like. That's why Harris is so happy to be in the Wilson Heights precinct. But then The Mayor tells Harris that business in the city is plummeting because of the robberies. Since there appears to be a leak in Harris's precinct, the Governor has sent in a team to stop the Wilson Heights gang. Much to Harris's dismay, the team is led by Commandant Eric Lassard, so Harris knows who the team members are -- exactly the cops that he doesn't like. The team members are Nick Lassard, Moses Hightower, Eugene Tackleberry, Larvell Jones, Debbie Callahan, Laverne Hooks, and Douglas Fackler. The stakes are raised when Commandant Lassard is accused of being the mastermind behind the robberies, and the team must clear his name. Written by Todd Baldridge

Nowhere near as bad as critics insist..
22 February 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

but on the other hand it's not the funniest movie ever made and it's just a rehash of the last 5 movies, but it's STILL good and worth watching if you've nothing better to do & obiously if you've seen the first 5. There isn't much of a story but what there is of it consists of a gang of 3 goons who work for a MR BIG bringing down property prices by going on a City wide crime-wave with the Academy the only people who can stop them.. and that's about it Of course there's loads of slaptick mainly down to the inept Capt. Harris and partner LT.Proctor. Most of the other usual cast remains What with Bubba Smith (hightower) doing his strong man thing, Leslie Easterbrook (Callahan) doing her strong ass-kicking woman thing & The late David Graf (Tackleberry) doing his gung-ho ass-kicking stuff that we've seen in all the other 5 movies so It might get tiresome for hard to please critics, but for a bit of lightweight entertainment that won't tax your Brain too much it's nigh on Unbeatable My vote for what it's worth 7/10.

Followed by Police Academy 7: Mission to Moscow the last movie which flopped at the Box-office (maybe it was an academy too many for film fans who though they'd suffered enough)
