Police Academy 4: Citizens on Patrol

Police Academy 4: Citizens on Patrol

Jim Drake (1987)

PG Certificate


Our Score
This is probably the only Police Academy sequel worth watching - not, of course, because it's any good, but because it gives us the opportunity to watch a pre-Basic Instinct Sharon Stone stranded down the cast list with the thankless role of star Steve Guttenberg's girlfriend. By now Guttenberg was in search of better things and does little more here than go through the motions. So the best gags go to George Gaynes as the feeble-minded commander who finds himself training an even crazier bunch of recruits when citizens are encouraged to become part-time policemen.


Commandant Lassard comes to the conclusion that his staff are overworked, so in an attempt to solve the problem, he assigns the clueless cops to teach a group of equally inept civilians how to combat crime. Comedy sequel, with Steve Guttenberg, Sharon Stone, Bubba Smith, Michael Winslow and David Graf.
