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

For the final scene, two hundred fifty Russian military police officers were required as extras. In the midst of a local food shortage, 758 police officers showed up on the day of shooting, because they had heard that lunch would be served. Producer Paul Maslansky and his team of Hungarian cooks left in a small van, and somehow managed to return with a hot meal for every person who had turned up to the set that day. See more »

...said no one ever. So, the last Police Academy sequel was in 1989. It was terrible. This one came out in 1994 and it proudly picks up where the last one left off. Christopher Lee plays a Russian police commandant who can't catch criminal kingpin Ron Perlman. So he sends to America for the Police Academy losers. This is surreal. The plot is so deeply stupid that I lose IQ points just typing it. Series regulars George Gaynes, Michael Winslow, David Graf, Leslie Easterbrook, and G.W. Bailey return. No laughs are to be had. The cast, whose likability kept the series afloat early on even when the jokes missed the mark, can do nothing to save this sinking ship. Actually, it had already sunk by this point. Now it's just a few survivors desperately trying to stay afloat before the sharks eat them. Avoid unless you are a glutton for punishment.
