(at around 1h 12 mins) This movie is set in the United States, but when Lassard is looking through his binoculars at the regatta, you can see the CN Tower (from Toronto Ontario Canada) in the background. See more »
Okay, so these films were never the most respected of the 1980s, but they at least started off with a nicely foul-mouthed, sexist-pig approach. This, the third film in the series, marks the point at which the sequels began their rapid descent into insipid kid's fare; references to the original simply come across as lazy re-hashes (which, let's face it, they are), and the new characters lack any real bite. As with 'Police Academy's 2 and 4, G.W. Bailey's absence is painfully apparent.
An excrutiating karaoke singalong (complete with Tackleberry on sax and Jones grooving away on bass) rubs salt into the already-chafing wounds. And there was still a long way to go before 'Mission to Moscow.'
