After the high-speed adventure in Police Academy 5: Assignment: Miami Beach (1988), a spate of robberies in the stylish Wilson Heights district terrorises the city. Then, to make matters worse, when the trio of cat-burglars manages to pull off a daring heist right under the nose of Captain Harris, it is up to Commandant Lassard and a band of loyal graduates from the original Police Academy (1984) to stop the wave of thefts. Now, as a mole is leaking valuable information, only a well-organised undercover operation can expose the mysterious "Mastermind", the one behind the gang's crime spree. Can Lassard's finest crack the case of the Wilson Heights Gang?Written by
As Nick Lassard is being driven in the cherry picker, one of the piles of trash he hits on the street sounds like bowling pins falling down. See more »
(at around 57 mins) Nick is heard saying, "The Wilson Heights gang. They're getting away." However, his lips say, "The Wilson Heights gang is down there." See more »
Proctor! You have been singing Christmas songs for the entire five hours of this stakeout. And Christmas is a good four months away. If you sing so much as one more note... I will shoot you.

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. See more »
but on the other hand it's not the funniest movie ever made and it's just a rehash of the last 5 movies, but it's STILL good and worth watching if you've nothing better to do & obiously if you've seen the first 5. There isn't much of a story but what there is of it consists of a gang of 3 goons who work for a MR BIG bringing down property prices by going on a City wide crime-wave with the Academy the only people who can stop them.. and that's about it Of course there's loads of slaptick mainly down to the inept Capt. Harris and partner LT.Proctor. Most of the other usual cast remains What with Bubba Smith (hightower) doing his strong man thing, Leslie Easterbrook (Callahan) doing her strong ass-kicking woman thing & The late David Graf (Tackleberry) doing his gung-ho ass-kicking stuff that we've seen in all the other 5 movies so It might get tiresome for hard to please critics, but for a bit of lightweight entertainment that won't tax your Brain too much it's nigh on Unbeatable My vote for what it's worth 7/10.
Followed by Police Academy 7: Mission to Moscow the last movie which flopped at the Box-office (maybe it was an academy too many for film fans who though they'd suffered enough)
