Review

A star rating of 1 out of 5.

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.
