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. Written by

Deleted from an earlier draft script was a scene featuring Commandant Lassard appearing as a contestant on the Russian version of Wheel of Fortune (1983), with his Russian host family seated in the audience as his supporters. Lassard keeps making correct guesses, purely by accident, while he is speaking English words that happen to sound like Russian letters, resulting in a big win. Another deleted scene, featured Lassard and his host family bungee jumping off a bridge. However, this was not filmed, due to the impracticalities that would involve having to suspend the then 76 year old George Gaynes upside down. Even for greenscreen work, this was deemed too risky for Gaynes' health and safety, and so the scene was dropped. See more »

Great, great subway. Terrific! I mean, New York is a shithouse, but this is great.

I now know how everyone felt about these films. The first six I got through ok, I have a pretty wide sense of humor. But this, oh is it awful. I mean come on, George Gaynes is now the lead actor in the credits?! Bubba's gone, Matt McCoy's gone, not even Lance Kinsey's Proctor came back. And poor Charlie Schlatter. Six years ago he was starring opposite the legendary George Burns in "18 Again," and now he's doing stuff like this. I feel for ya, bro. But as far as the film goes, here's what passed for a joke: Gaynes getting into the wrong car and riding with strangers...oh stop, your killin me! And way too painful sight gags like Bailey's inner ear being yanked with an earpiece through a wall. Mmm, that was just tough to watch, not funny. I have to come clean here, though. I did not see this entire movie. I gave it 45 minutes but just couldn't take it anymore, it was just too putrid. I didn't even get my customary smile at the opening credits when Robert Folk's familiar P.A. theme started up... they revamped the damn thing! Yuck, stay away from this dreck.
