Storyline

The Russians need help in dealing with the Mafia and so they seek help with the veterans of the Police Academy (1984). They head off to Moscow, in order to find evidence against Konstantine Konali, who marketed a computer game that everyone in the world is playing. With a sequel to the game he wants to put backdoors in all computer systems on which it gets installed, thus providing access to the police and other government systems.

Trivia

Alan Metter disowned the film before its release, blaming Paul Maslansky for interfering with the creative process, and forcing more of a focus on slapstick humor, rather than Metter's preferred direction of basing the humor on the cultural differences between the American and Russian officers.

Goofs

Quotes

Captain Thaddeus Harris: Not exactly a four star hotel, is it?
Lieutenant Talinsky: Well, we spend our police budget on fighting criminals, not on pampering out of town visitors.
Captain Thaddeus Harris: It was your government that brought us here!
Lieutenant Talinsky: They also bring in monkeys for zoo, but we don't put them in four star hotel either!

100% Laugh-free
4 March 2012 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

Putting it as simply as I can so as to truly convey my contempt for this film: many of us have heard people use the line "two hours of my life I'll never get back" to describe a movie they disliked, and there really isn't anyone alive who doesn't find that phrase old and tired. This is the only movie I've ever bothered to use a version of that line on (thankfully, it's only 83 minutes, not two hours) out loud, because no other obscenity-free phrase describes it.

I've seen some terrible movies in my day, but up until sitting through this one I never found myself actually ANGRY at a movie for being terrible. This movie is supposed to be a comedy, and I'm not exaggerating at all when I say I found it to be ONE HUNDRED PERCENT laugh-free. There's not even a single accidental funny moment anywhere in all 83 minutes. Awful. Horrible.

I implore anyone who hasn't seen this movie yet to avoid it like the plague. Your 83 minutes could be spent better doing almost anything else.
