Having earned their shiny new badges after graduating from the prestigious Police Academy (1984) of Commandant Eric Lassard, Officer Carey Mahoney, along with five other top graduates, find themselves transferred to the worst precinct in the city, run by Eric's brother, Captain Pete Lassard. As the town holds a record for crime rates, mainly because of the "Scullions", the mean local gang of the unhinged crime boss, Zed, the inexperienced recruits have a lot on their plate, while in the meantime, power-hungry Lieutenant Mauser is dreaming of making a name for himself. Now, only Mahoney and a coordinated undercover mission can thwart Mauser's plans. But, can the world's most eccentric police officers save the day?Written by
Despite the fact that no such character exists in the movie, a blonde policewoman appears on the official poster. This was an inside joke made by the producers, as they had also requested that the same "sexy girl" be included on an earlier version of the first film's poster. See more »
When Mauser is accidentally pushed down the hole, atop the old zoo, the rock formations in the foreground are clearly made of fiberglass, as evidenced when he falls in and it shakes. Additionally, as they're supposed to be on top of the cave, the setting of the roof clearly shows it was built right out in front of the old zoo. See more »

The original UK cinema version was cut by 1 sec to remove a single instance of the word 'fuck' for a PG rating. The cut was restored in all video releases and the certificate upgraded. See more »

Beat the softmore(sp) curse?
Does it count when a sequel is better if the first was horrible? I guess it does in this case! In the first of too many sequels, the team receives their first assignment, chasing a gang of `street punks' led by Bobcat Goldthwait. (a brilliant casting move) Goldthwait's fun performance, along with a few (like three or four) more jokes do defy the sequel curse; that wasn't hard, look at the first! However when Bobcat Goldthwait is your highest point your in trouble. bottom line if you like mindless somewhat fun comedies this is for you.
It also defies an even rarer rarity: something watchable from the eighties!
