The old Commandant Lassard, leader of the Police Academy (1984), goes to Florida to receive an award. In the city arrives also the cynic Captain Harris who wants to take Lassard's job. ... See full summary »
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
Though it is never outright mentioned which city the Police Academy graduates work and live in, the route sign on Proctor's commandeered bus says "23rd & Broadway", suggesting they are in New York City. See more »
Nick is heard saying, "The Wilson Heights gang. They're getting away." However, his lips say, "The Wilson Heights gang is down there." See more »
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)
