The movie had its moment in the sun, somebody made a lot of money from it and then it vanished. Mercifully so in most ways, but not without leaving at least a little whiff of younger, happier days behind.

A Reagan-era screed against affirmative action, Police Academy warns what misfits and lowlifes wait to pour through the floodgates.

It's harmless stuff, to be sure, but almost invisible, it disappears from memory so fast. A stealth comedy, perhaps?

Excellent misfit comedy. The R rating gives it edge that the sequels lack.
