Four new Banshee Squad Members join the Hong Kong Police Academy to undergo training supervised by Madam Wu (Sibelle Hu). Their personalities don't click with the current Squad Members, resulting in petty arguments and duels. However, they later make peace with one another as they join the Tiger Squad Members, supervised by Inspector Kan (Shui-Fan Fung), to undergo new training courses together and combine forces to take down a band of terrorists.

Much of "The Inspector Wears Skirts II" feels like a retread of the first film, except that it's not as funny or as fresh: girlfights, harsh training, Stanley Fung trying to woo Sibelle Hu, Sandra Ng not finding a guy to woo her and constantly getting into trouble, a boys vs. girls martial arts tournament, etc. The action climax (in the last 10 minutes) does offer some spectacular fighting and stunts, but for most viewers it will probably be a case of "too little, too late". The absence of Ellen Chan is also unfortunate, but at least we have among the newcomers the busty Amy Yip, and a short-haired actress (sorry, I don't know her name, but she plays Joey) who pulls off a couple of impressive moves at the tournament. Anyway, it's not a painful film by any means, but you must be prepared for about 90% comedy - 10% action (while the original was about 70% - 30%) (**)
