The picture in Hale's office shows B-52s that are or were located at the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group at Davis Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, AZ. Sometimes referred to as "The Boneyard", it is where many military aircraft are stored until reused or destroyed. There is no obvious reason why the picture is in his office. (The picture is from Wikipedia's entry on the base). See more »

I can't understand why anyone would give this movie a good review. The Police Academy movies were just complete nonsense from start to finish but this movie attempts to be smart and knowing and not ridiculous. The plot is nonsense and the development of the characters is poor. The very idea that the police force would be prepared to tolerate Melissa's character is unbelievable. She is foul-mouthed, aggressive and violent. In her very first five minutes she breaks about a dozen laws. She would be dismissed in minutes and probably jailed for her behavior. As an officer, she is supposed to able to stand up in court but no judge would put up with her attitude and any lawyer would have her testimony in shreds. It was a truly awful movie but worse for me than the movie, is the thought that other people thought it was original and witty.
