When police funding is cut, the Governor announces he must close one of the academies. To make it fair, the two police academies must compete against each other to stay in operation. Mauser persuades two officers in Lassard's academy to better his odds, but things don't quite turn out as expected...Written by

Bobcat Goldthwait said in an interview that he was considered a difficult actor on set. He had made a suggestion to the filmmakers that the villains in the final chase scene should be the same ones who appeared earlier in the movie. Bobcat was told to just say his lines, and that they were not paying him to write. Goldthwait later remarked, "I was almost thrown out of the academy for trying to introduce plots!" See more »
(at around 26 mins) There is a jump cut when the German Shepherd rips Bud Kirkland's sleeve off. First, Bud catches the sleeve thrown back to him by Hightower. In the next shot, the sleeve is already back on Bud's arm. See more »

There are 16 extra scenes on the TBS Superstation version:
Jones practices his karate skills just before the scene in the Gymnasium.
After Mauser tells Blanks and Copeland what to do, the scene continues on the rooftop. Mauser's car gets stolen, and there is a scene with him falling into a trash container.
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.
Cadet Adams accidentally helps three thieves rob a store.
Bud Kirkland's rifle discharges into the air when Hightower drives the car over a bump.
Extra scene with the cadets talking in the control room after Hooks teaches them how to work the computers.
Jones talks with his nephew.
Blanks tells the cadets their mistakes.
Mauser watches his new recruits' weapons handling.
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.
