More of same slap-shtick w/familiar cast of goofballs.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

You can argue quality, you can argue taste, but you can't argue the phenomenal success of these cheaply made joke-fests.

Low IQ Canadian

Deadly-dull pacing and overuse of old gags ruin Police Academy 3, the first of the franchise to come anywhere near 'enjoyable.'

The franchise hasn't changed, but that means the humor is still amiably the same, too.
