Although everyone (even in subsequent Police Academy movies), refers to Tim Kazurinsky's character as "Sweetchuck", his name is actually "Schewchuk". This is evidenced on the sign outside his store. The name is a reference to the set decorator of the original Police Academy (1984) film, Steve Shewchuk. See more »

After this sequel, Police Academy dried up what little laughs it already had!
Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment was the last film to be remotely funny out of the further Academy films. No wonder almost every single orignal cast member dropped after the 4th film. My favorite character in this film however, and the only being who made it funny, was Bob Goldthwait. He and his raspy voice are hilarious, and make this film worth watching. I saw it on at 1 am once. I guess it's the only time slot the channel figure that no one will be watching. Anyway, it's worthy of a one time viewing, as the first, though they are both rip-offs of the film stripes. But still, see 1 & 2 once, and don't bother with the rest. 2.5/5 stars.
