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

The criminal organization behind the crime wave in the city is called the Wilson Heights Gang, a reference to Wilson Heights Boulevard, a street in the Downsview area of Toronto, Canada. The specific area itself is called Wilson Heights. The name is also believed to be a reference to the director of the original Police Academy (1984), Hugh Wilson. See more »

Good for fans of the series.
8 September 1999 | by (LA, CA) – See all my reviews

Pretty good, considering that there is no plot, just a string of (sometimes tired) gags. But for those of you who hated it, have you seen them all? Did you think that if they all stunk, this one would be a Best Picture contender? C'mon man, it stupid stuff, you gotta enjoy it on that level. If you do, it has some pretty stupid gags that you're bound to laugh at.
