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

In an interview, Leslie Easterbrook and Paul Maslansky spoke of the challenges of making this movie in Moscow during the coup in which Boris Yeltsin's White House was burned and the TV center was also stormed by government troops. There were numerous delays shooting on location, due to interference from local authorities. On one occasion, even though Paul Maslansky had been given the go-ahead to film at the airport, when he and 40 vehicles full of equipment, cast and crew arrived to the airport, they were told they were not being let in, due to the state of emergency. This caused filming of those scenes to be re-scheduled for 10 days later, while the production instead moved over to Mosfilm, Moscow's main studio, to shoot on the cover sets. For the Gorky Park scenes, they arrived on location, and were told by Russian officials they would not be shooting there that day. Cast and crew were often hungry, due to a local food shortage. Leslie said, "the story never really gelled, because it was impossible to shoot." See more »

"Kicking buttski. Making you laughski. The Academy is backski!"
What the hell is that even meant to mean!!?? I cannot think of a single Russian word (apart from the obvious "Russki") that ends with "ski". This is just one of the many idiotic retarded things in this movie. The story makes no sense. Why would Russians want to hire a bunch of American loudmouths to hunt down some supposed "Russian" gangster who doesn't look, sound, or talk like a Russian. What kind of a Russian surname is "Konali" anyway? And he's planning to take over the world with a stupid video game about a bear who runs around punching people? WHAT THE HELL!? The jokes aren't funny and the acting is crap. Whoever made this movie should be dragged through their own vomit.
This movie a dumbski piece of crapski.
