The Russians need help in dealing with the Mafia and so they seek help with the veterans of the Police Academy (1984). They head off to Moscow, in order to find evidence against Konstantine Konali, who marketed a computer game that everyone in the world is playing. With a sequel to the game he wants to put backdoors in all computer systems on which it gets installed, thus providing access to the police and other government systems.Written by

In an interview, Leslie Easterbrook and Producer Paul Maslansky spoke of the challenges of making this movie in Moscow during the coup in which Boris Yeltsin's White House was burned, and the television center was also stormed by government troops. There were numerous delays shooting on-location, due to interference from local authorities. On one occasion, even though Paul Maslansky had been given the go-ahead to film at the airport, when he and forty vehicles full of equipment, cast and crew arrived to the airport, they were told they were not being let in, due to the state of emergency. This caused filming of those scenes to be re-scheduled for ten days later, while the production instead moved over to Mosfilm, Moscow's main studio, to shoot on the cover sets. For the Gorky Park scenes, they arrived on-location, and were told by Russian officials they would not be shooting there that day. Cast and crew were often hungry, due to a local food shortage. Leslie said, "the story never really gelled, because it was impossible to shoot." See more »

I now know how everyone felt about these films. The first six I got through ok, I have a pretty wide sense of humor. But this, oh is it awful. I mean come on, George Gaynes is now the lead actor in the credits?! Bubba's gone, Matt McCoy's gone, not even Lance Kinsey's Proctor came back. And poor Charlie Schlatter. Six years ago he was starring opposite the legendary George Burns in "18 Again," and now he's doing stuff like this. I feel for ya, bro. But as far as the film goes, here's what passed for a joke: Gaynes getting into the wrong car and riding with strangers...oh stop, your killin me! And way too painful sight gags like Bailey's inner ear being yanked with an earpiece through a wall. Mmm, that was just tough to watch, not funny. I have to come clean here, though. I did not see this entire movie. I gave it 45 minutes but just couldn't take it anymore, it was just too putrid. I didn't even get my customary smile at the opening credits when Robert Folk's familiar P.A. theme started up... they revamped the damn thing! Yuck, stay away from this dreck.
