After completing their mission in Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment (1985), Officer Carey Mahoney, and the rest of the original graduates from Commandant Eric Lassard's Police Academy (1984) find themselves with their backs to the wall. It seems that, due to funding cutbacks, there can only be one police institution in the city, and Commandants Lassard and Mauser must do their best to get Governor Neilson's approval. Of course, conniving Mauser has already concocted an ingeniously evil plan to sabotage his rivals. Can Mahoney, along with a handful of recruits, save the day and their beloved academy?Written by
The only Police Academy film to feature a Miss Universe winner. Shawn Weatherly (Cadet Karen Adams) was Miss Universe in 1980. See more »
(at around 53 mins) While the gang is playing music at Policeperson Ball, Jones was playing a guitar with no strings. This is probably an intended joke, as Jones can effectively impersonate a guitar with his noise making skills. See more »
Sgt. Larvelle Jones:
[speaking as though he is an actor in a Japanese martial-arts film being overdubbed in English by moving his mouth when not speaking]
At this time... I would like to introduce... to all of you... my instructor... the man who taught me... how to fight.
[throws a straight punch, then continues the same way]
Sgt. Larvelle Jones:
Please welcome... if you will... Sgt. John Turney.

There are 16 extra scenes on the TBS Superstation version:

Mauser walks in to the police department.
Commandant Lassard, Mahoney, Blanks and Copeland talk about the training for the new recruits.
Tackleberry takes out his chainsaw to get down a child who is sitting in a tree instead of going to school.

Extra scene with the cadets talking in the control room after Hooks teaches them how to work the computers.

Naked in his car, Proctor is embarrassed by a truck driver while stopping at a red light.
After we see Tackleberry asking the old lady if she can identify her quarter, a few scenes later we see him giving her the money and telling her to mail the rest back.
Jones stops in the middle of the road because a truck is standing in his way. While he and Nogata wait, their car's gasoline is being stolen by a man who sucks it out with a hose.
A scene with Jones and Nogata telling Adams they cannot carry out their mission and she would have to send in Mahoney to complete it.
Mahoney, Commandant Lassard and Adams arrive late at a crime scene.
In this sequel, the same slapsticks that have been used in the first two movies are apparent and that's what makes it fun to watch. Michael Winslow, who plays Jones, has once again entertained me with his vocal prowess. Also Hooks' (Marion Ramsey) timidness is easily shrouded by her tough side always saying "Don't move, dirtbag!"
Steve Guttenberg (Mahoney) didn't need to stretch his role for this one. It is still fun to watch after 13 years of it's initial release. One of a perfect movies to watch on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
