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

Trivia

At one stage, producers considered having the storyline revolve around the Academy graduates travelling to England. British comedy writing duo Richard Curtis and Ben Elton (Blackadder) were approached with an offer to write the script for 'Police Academy 6: The London Beat', but the pair refused, saying they don't work to hire.

Few laughs
15 May 2000 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

The "Police Academy" series completely ran out of gas with "Police Academy 6: City Under Siege". The laughs here are few and far between. But I have a couple of questions about this series. Didn't some of these actors (George Gaynes, David Graf, Marion Ramsey, etc.) have anything better to do than to keep turning up in "Police Academy" movies? Was there any other film roles that they could have taken? And, most importantly, why was that character Proctor (the lieutenant with an I.Q. of 0) still around? This character (introduced in "Police Academy 2") should not have been brought back for all of these "Police Academy" sequels. His presence (and stupidity) nearly ruined this series.

*1/2 (out of four)
