Classic PA. Never noticed before this watch, young Tony Hawk is one of the skateboarders. As is David Spade.

Also an early Sharon Stone plays the reporter. Despite the recent resurgence of the 80s in fashion, thank heavens most of these particular styles have not surged. Watch this to remind yourself why no one needs much hairspray. And how horribly wrong high-waisted can go....

This series is meant to give you heart warming chuckles. Not great, profound funnies, but good chuckles. The good guy wins and shares a few snappy one liners. Light-hearted comedy with ever so slightly romance tones.

Date-level movie if your chick is into slapstick, hockey/football (physical humor), and a child of the 80s. If she digs Friends and Sex in the City this is NOT a good idea, and she's probably boring.

The third sequel to "Police Academy." Despite this being the 4th film of the franchise, this movie does not let up on the laughs. In particular the polar opposite team of Mr. Zed and Sweetchuck are a riot to watch. In this movie, the Police Academy gang institute a neighborhood watch type program, Commandant Lassard's Citizens on Patrol (COP). This movie is a good one for a rainy day. Despite George Gaynes, as Commandant Lassard, as a mior role in this one, he is worth watching. The constantly befuddled Commandant Lassard gives the "Police Academy" movies the extra bit of laughter every time.

The Metropolitan Police Academy's commandant Eric Lassard(George Gaynes) has initiated a community relations program called Citizens On Patrol. That's where ordinary citizens witness criminal behavior and bring the criminals to justice. Much of the original gang is still here,so are Zed(Bobcat Goldthwait) and Swechiuk(Tim Kazurinsky). G.W. Bailey returns in this sequel as Captain Thaddeus Harris(he was a lieutenant in the first film). Lt. Proctor(Lance Kinsey) is now a member of Harris' precinct. Bailey returned because Art Metrano was written out for good after the previous sequel. Chad Copeland(Scott Thomson) is part of Harris' team also. Sgt. Moses Hightower(Bubba Smith) says in one of the first scenes,"I believe Brother Swechiuk is suggesting we recruit in our old neighborhood." Lassard strongly agrees. Some of the COP team members are Lois Feldman(Billie Bird) & Thomas "House" Conklin(Tab Thacker),an overweight black guy who resembles one of The Fat Boys members. Two other young male members(Brian Backer and David Spade)are assigned to the program after they're tried for disorderly conduct via their skateboards in a shopping mall. Carey Mahoney(Steve Guttenberg) who was present at the trial,suggested the idea to the presiding judge. Again,it's another gang making a large illegal mess. This film features Sharon Stone who was in 1986,when this film was made,not-so-famous. Spade would also become a major celebrity several years later,becoming a member of NBC's Saturday Night Live. Stone is Claire Mattson,who joins COP also. She and Carey went partners in whatever either did. In the last scene,Zed tells Swechiuk,"You look a little like Tom Cruise in 'Top Gun'(one of 86's biggest films).Read more ›

A film by Jim Drake

The misfit police officers are back at it again. This time the officers are being asked to help with the new "Citizens on Patrol" program. This program allows regular citizens to help clean up the streets of the city and just like the first "Police Academy" movie, the new program attracts an assorted band of misfits which is characterized by a little old grandma (Billie Bird) who, like Tackleberry (David Graf) is obsessed with guns and weaponry. Hilarity is supposed to ensue as these new C.O.P.s (clever, huh?) try to bust real criminals and make citizens arrest while they bungle their way into real police work.

Hilarity does not really ensue, though it is better than "Police Academy 5: Project Miami Beach", but then the series is getting progressively worse. The style of comedy is much the same as the other "Police Academy" movies. It is slapstick, silly, bungling humor, and it works to an extent the first time you see the movie. It works especially well if the viewer is younger, around 10 years old or so. Any truly offensive scenes have been scrubbed out of this series (though the first movie was rated "R").

This fourth movie is notable for being the last of the "Police Academy" movies to feature Steve Guttenberg as Officer Carey Mahoney. Note the drop in quality when Guttenberg leaves only to replaced by the similar character Nick Lassard in P.A. 5. This movie also has a younger Sharon Stone and David Spade is supporting roles and a cameo appearance by a very young Tony Hawk. None of the "Police Academy" movies are all that good, except perhaps the first one, but by the time the fourth movie rolled around it was clearly time to stop. That's my recommendation: stop.

When Police Academy 4 originally premiered on Network Television, additional footage was added that was not seen in the theatrical cut. What's amazing is how well these extra scenes help move the story along, which makes you wonder why they were deleted in the first place? (Most likely because of the running time difference from 102 minutes to the theatrical release of 88 minutes.)
Some of the best cut stuff is of Steve Guttenberg and Sharon Stone, whose relationship seemed a bit empty in the theatrical cut. But with the extra scenes, which included Mahoney taking Claire Mattson (Stone) home in a squad car, while doing a little stuntdriving, followed by a bit of flirtatious fun back at her place, this really added another dimension to their relationship, and gave more meaning to the ending, with them up in the weather balloon together. In fact Sharon Stone's role in the theatrical version seemed very small indeed. But with these added scenes as well as another between Lt. Harris (G.W. Bailey), her screentime is lengthened considerably.
Other cut scenes include additional banter between Sweetchuck (Tim Mazurinsky) & Zed (Bobcat Goldthwait), some fancy skateboarding by Mahoney, more screentime for Butterworth (Derek McGrath), and even an explanation of how Zack (Randall "Tex" Cobb) ended up in jail in the first place.
Those scenes, along with a few others totaling about fourteen minutes, are included separately as bonus material on the DVD. But hopefully, Warner Brothers will eventually release the movie with these scenes put back in, as well as showing the film in the proper Widescreen format (1.85:1) instead of Fullframe (1.33:1) as it is shown here. Why they did this (as well as also releasing Police Academy 5 Fullscreen on DVD) is anybody's guess.
