Storyline

A string of business robberies have taken place in the city's Wilson Heights neighborhood, all done by the same three crooks. Captain Thaddeus Harris is no longer in the same precinct with a certain group of cops that he doesn't like. That's why Harris is so happy to be in the Wilson Heights precinct. But then The Mayor tells Harris that business in the city is plummeting because of the robberies. Since there appears to be a leak in Harris's precinct, the Governor has sent in a team to stop the Wilson Heights gang. Much to Harris's dismay, the team is led by Commandant Eric Lassard, so Harris knows who the team members are -- exactly the cops that he doesn't like. The team members are Nick Lassard, Moses Hightower, Eugene Tackleberry, Larvell Jones, Debbie Callahan, Laverne Hooks, and Douglas Fackler. The stakes are raised when Commandant Lassard is accused of being the mastermind behind the robberies, and the team must clear his name. Written by Todd Baldridge

Trivia

(At around one hour and fifteen minutes) When Proctor is driving the bus, he narrowly avoids hitting a corner fresh fruit stand as Harris yells, "Look out for Gene and Roger's fruit stand!" This is a reference to movie critics Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert, who mentioned in a review of one of the previous films that every Police Academy (1984) movie had to feature stunt drivers crashing through rubbish bins or a fruit stand. Despite the pair voicing their appreciation to the producers for mentioning them in the movie, the film still received "two thumbs down". See more »

Goofs

(at around 51 mins) When the power is out and Sgt. Fackler is swinging at bugs while directing traffic, the string the bugs are hanging on is clearly visible. See more »

Ox: Quit crying! This will be over in a moment!

Sergeant Moses Hightower: Fighting is one thing, but bad jokes is where I draw the line!

Alternate Versions

UK cinema and video versions shortened the scene where Lassard and Fackler go to the pool room. After entering from outside, it cuts to the inside on the line "Watch this. I'm going to hustle this old fart for everything he owns", completely omitting Lassard and Fackler's entrance from the inside. This was to remove all shots of nunchakus being thrown behind the bar, as their appearance was strictly prohibited in UK films at the time. The cuts were restored for the 2004 DVD release.

Should Have Stopped at Three
20 July 2005 | by Nozze-MusicaSee all my reviews

Police Academy 1 through 3 showcased it's raunchy to to comedic perfection. While being hysterical the first three (especially the first) also showed a lot of social commentary, talking about sexism, and racism. But there was really nothing left after three. they still kept it going, why I don't know but they did. This time around there is a crimewave, and half of the cast is still gone, and for good reason. Michael Winslow and Bubba Smith just aren't enough, and the obnoxious Captain Harris can't save the movie either, and neither can new addition Kenneth Mars. Stick with the first three, they will crack you up, but this while a marginal improvement over 5 isn't enough to save it. I guess the series ran out of jokes.
