This award-winning feature film showcases actor-comedian Michael Winslow, star of 7 Police Academy films. His spellbinding and audience-pleasing talent has never been fully presented or cinematically preserved - until now.
Loose morals and cocaine lullabies are a way of life for the hard-living doctor/owner of a group home for wayward teens. With issues and tissues for miles and a bookie on his ass, he keeps the doors open and the patients revolving.
After watching the Police academy movies over the years (those were not masterpieces, either, on the contrary), I was rather curious if this series was worth watching and if the jokes were good or at least somewhat better then those on the big screen. Boy, was I disappointed! I've seen parts of two or three episodes of this series and all I can say is: painful, gruesome, as bad as it can be! If you don't expect a comedy, the script is actually acceptable. If you see the title and look forward to relaxing and laughing, AVOID WATCHING IT! The "jokes" and "funny scenes" are so bad, they make you cry! I think even a kindergarten kid would have to give his best effort to smile once. Even Police Academy: Mission to Moskow was, as hard as it is to believe, BETTER than this.
5/10 as a series, 0/10 as a comedy series
