Jim Drake is credited with the direction and Gene Quintano with the script, though they'd probably appreciate it if you kept it to yourself.

What's so amazing about the Police Academy movies is that they keep being made even though they stopped being funny after the hilarious original.

Director Jim Drake keeps things moving so quickly, one barely has time to notice just how stale the jokes here are.

Script is merely a collection of gags tied together by the slightest suggestion of a story.

More of the same from the wackiest police force on the streets, and their newly recruited civilian helpers.

Quite possibly the least essential movie ever made. A call to arming the elderly.

Not a highlight of the series. Loses the fun feel of incompetent cops in a complicated citizen plot.

There's nothing remotely arresting about the recycled and pointless roguish antics being drudged up once again in another tired and tedious Police Academy sequel. This bunch should lock the cell door and throw away the kooky keys!

The new players, like the original ones (who are still here in full force), are limited to one-shtick roles and are sometimes even more limited than that.

Just when you think American film comedy has hit the bottom of the barrel, it makes a supreme effort and keeps sinking.
