Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment

Jerry Paris (1985)

PG Certificate


Our Score
The international success of the first movie in the Police Academy series meant that new director Jerry Paris wasn't going to mess with a winning formula. This time the misfits get the opportunity to cause chaos on the streets, but, despite featuring many members of the original cast, this is merely a lazy replay of the original outing, with grossness substituting for any genuine humour. An embarrassed looking Howard Hesseman, star of TV's Head of the Class, is the only major new addition.


America's most inept cops graduate and are let loose on the streets - under the command of an unscrupulous lieutenant whose promotion depends on their failure. Fortunately for him, their unique brand of policing actually leads to an increase in the crime rate. Comedy sequel, starring Steve Guttenberg, Bubba Smith, David Graf and Michael Winslow.
