The exterior of the stadium under construction, into which Proctor was lifted, was the then-under construction Toronto SkyDome (now Rogers Centre). See more »
Proctor's Port-o-Potty is lowered into the stadium full of people, and the housing of the unit is lifted, leaving the base and Proctor. When the music plays, Proctor stands up and you can briefly see his underwear (which he wouldn't be wearing because he was using the toilet). See more »
On the TBS TV Version, there is an extra scene with Sharon Stone (Claire Mattson) and Steve Guttenberg (Mahoney) that is not in the theatrical version or the video version. In this added scene, Mahoney comes over to Claire's house to chat with her for a bit and check up on the dog, Clarence. See more »
The first three Police Academy films were brilliant and extremely funny. Police Academy 4 was unexceptional.
It does have it's good points; we see the return of Harris, who is now a Captain and Zed continues his crazy antics but there's nothing particularly funny or memorable in this film. The first three films had you laughing again and again but Part 4 was lacking anything truly funny.
The ending was a bit of a letdown compared to the climaxes for the first three films.
It's also goodbye to Steve Guttenberg as Carey Mahoney who quit the series after this film.
Police Academy 4 was painfully average. It will probably be a disappointment to fans of the first three films.
