Scary thing is, there is a Police Academy 7.
i thought this was number 6...i could be wrong though...i know there are 7 though, so i'm just not sure what part six is. i'm tempted to buy the box set. Part 4 is probably the best
I'm ashamed to do this but being someone that grew up on HBO as a kid I'm obliged to break it down. Note: I'm not bothering to look at IMDB on this. I wanna see how well I do.
Police Academy 1 - Obviously this is the best one of the bunch. Steve Guttenberg and Michael Winslow partake in shenanigans, hilarity ensues. Bubba Smith is all big and does "strong guy" stuff. Capt. Harris is the bad guy. One quick "Wait, they were in that?" note, Kim Cattral is in this one playing the girl Mahoney is trying to hook up with.
Police Academy 2 - The newly graduated recruits take to the streets under the guidance of the dude that played Johnny Fever on WKRP. Bobcat Goldwaith is the leader of a street gang that runs amok, notably harrassing a local shopkeeper named Sweetchuck. Capt. Harris is nowhere to be found in this one, as Capt. Mauser plays the bad guy that plans to ruin the fun.
Police Academy 3 - The third movie revolves around there being two police academies, one ran by Capt. Lassard and another ran by Capt. Mauser. The police force decides that only one can keep running so they decide to have a committee check them out and make a decision, basically just a terrible plotline. Bobcat Goldwaith and Sweetchuck both decide to join the force and end up rooming together at the academy, hilarity ensues.
Police Acadmey 4: Citizens on Patrol - The fourth installment was the final Police Academy movie for Steve Guttenburg as he moved on to bigger and better things like.....um...that one movie, with that guy... and...(groan). This one involved the police starting a new program where average citizens could become cops, because lets face it, regular cops just aren't funny. You know what is funny? Really big fat guys, crotchety old ladies, and skater punks all being cops is funny. I may be wrong but I think David Spade and Sharon Stone are in this one. Also there's a skateboarding scene with Tony Hawk and some other pro skateboarders. Also this was Capt. Harris' first movie back since the original.
Police Academy 5: Assignment Miami Beach - What more can they do at this point you say? How about sending the hilarious cast down to Miami Beach for a police convention! This movie marked the point where the filmmakers had literally squeezed every last ounce of funniness out of this movie franchise. From here on out, any laughter you have is merely the uncomfortable kind as you try to find something else on tv. Nothing worth noting in this movie.
Police Academy 6: City Under Siege - At this point no self-respecting actor would be caught dead in this movie. Michael Winslow gets to some sound-effects at a comedy club during a blackout which is probably the only time a crowd would enjoy his act, when the city is shut down and they have no choice but to sit and wait for the power to come back on so they can find the exit. This movie's main storyline involved a rash of heists and robberies that were plaguing the city. It ends up being the Police Chief, or commissioner or mayor that's behind it all. I know I didn't put up a Spoiler alert, but if you were seriously gonna see this I just saved you the rental and the indigestion that ensues from watching it.
Police Academy: Mission to Moscow - Someone sold their soul to Satan to make this turd. I've never seen this one. The memory of actually sitting through no. 6 is horrible enough for me to not ever watch this installment. I do like how they stopped putting the numbers in the title. Like someone would not remember how many there were.
That's about all I can rehash right now.
