Just sometimes you turn on a movie and are surprised. In this case I was surprised it ever got funding. It takes me back to the days of shows like Kingswood Country when the only humour was saying a rude word and making a fart noise. It is movies like this that make the TV stations want to show nothing but reality and talent shows.
The basic premise that the movie is based on doesn't even work as the main two characters would never had even gotten admission into the police academy to begin with, and this continues with the rest of the players. IMO to have a good comedy you must have 'normal' people against whom the comedy players can bounce the humour off. If you make every character ridiculous you end up with just a ridiculous movie, and here it is.
