The old Commandant Lassard, leader of the Police Academy (1984), goes to Florida to receive an award. In the city arrives also the cynic Captain Harris who wants to take Lassard's job. Harris wants to place himself in a favourable light in front of the high military hierarchy but, at the airport, Lassard exchanges his bag with another one...Written by

(At around one hour and fifteen minutes) Commandant Lassard asks Tony (Rene Auberjonois) if they met at the Toronto convention. Toronto was the filming location of Police Academy (1984). See more »
(at around 15 mins) Three goons traverse the gap between two buildings by shooting a grappling hook device, securing the line at their end first. You hear the word "Go!" telling the first to go, then "Go" for the second man, then "Go" for the third. You should only have heard the "Go" twice, as the last one wouldn't have told himself to go, and it was said by the same voice so no-one else could've told him to "Go". Plus when the second one was going across, from the camera angle looking back to the balcony they came from, no one was waiting for their turn. The camera angle switches again, well after the second guy left, and you see the third guy set off from the balcony. See more »
"Police Academy 5" would be a disappointment if a college film class had produced, directed and starred in it. But to think that this was committed by Hollywood suits who thought there was a shred of humor in any of this....
Wait, cleansing breath.... Okay, let's continue.
Guttenberg cut out in the last movie, which leaves McCoy as the "romantic/humorous" lead. But not to worry: the rest of the usual gang of idiots comes along, too. Smith, Winslow, Graf, Easterbrook, Ramsey et al, pop up in Miami to help honor their Commandant (Gaynes) who is being honored as Policeman of the Decade on the eve of his forced retirement. Of course, there's the usual complications of jewel smuggling, kidnapping, chases in the Everglades, purse snatchers in drag....
You want the truth, here's the truth: the best part of this entire movie is watching Jones gallivant around in a swimsuit. Now SHE'S a piece of police-work. And Easterbrook is always good to watch lounging by the pool.
And Winslow's vocal wizardry is good for a few chuckles. That's about it.
Two and a half stars. And the next time someone calls you a "dork" while on the beach, check your chest.
