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
The movie performed poorly at the US Box Office grossing less than $11 million and marking the decline of the Police Academy (1984) film series. It also earned the distinction of being the first Police Academy movie not to place first in the US weekend box office. See more »
In the first briefing scene, Hightower rigs a wooden chair in front of him so that it breaks when Harris sits on it. The chair is seen to completely collapse. Then when we cut to Hightower again, the chair is intact in front of him. It cuts to a wide shot and the chair is broken again. See more »
There's a crime wave in the city and Captain Harris has proved an utter failure at stopping it. So the governor sends in a special team to help him, much to his frustration. The team, not surprisingly, is made up of the Police Academy gang. Penultimate entry in the series is total crap with no laughs in sight. The last in the series to feature Bubba Smith, Marion Ramsey, Lance Kinsey, and Bruce Mahler (who was last seen in part 3). Whether they left the series by choice or not, I do not know. I'd like to give them credit and say they did. Look for Dean Norris (Breaking Bad) and Allison Mack (Smallville) in small roles. It's pretty dreadful stuff. Makes the Ernest movies look like art.
