Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment
To protect, to serve... and make you laugh. America's funniest crimebusters are back!
Officer Carey Mahoney and his cohorts have finally graduated from the Police Academy and are about to hit the streets on their first assignment. Question is, are they ready to do battle with a band of graffiti-tagging terrorists? Time will tell, but don't sell short this cheerful band of doltish boys in blue.
If Reagan's America led to the creation of Zed's urban cave lair, then maybe he was the greatest president of our times.
Connection to previous movie - Michael Winslow
Solid followup. This time the rookies are tasked with taking down a gang led by Bobcat Goldthwait.
Not as brilliant as the first but still plenty of laughs that have stood the test of time. All the regulars on great form, as is Bobcat. Can't beat a bit of 80s slapstick!
This sequel is a far cry from the original. A lot of the jokes are recycled, but the Police Academy series still succeeds solely on its beloved characters.
Nice follow up to the first one with pretty much everyone returning plus a few extras added to the mix. If you like the first one you'll pretty much enjoy this one as well. Heck, there are scenes lifted directly from the first movie. That's ok though cause that's pretty much what I want from this.
The gang's all back...well at least most of the memorable characters are here. Commandant Lassard's brother the police chief gets sent 6 of top recruits from the 1984 class. There's comedian, prankster, horndog,& all around goofball Mahoney (Steve Guttenberg), there's the Herculean Hightower(Bubba Smith), there's the gun nut supercop Tackleberry(David Graf), there's the noise machine himself officer Larvell Jones (Michael Winslow), Fackler, the nerdy accident proned family man whose wife rode on the hood of the car in protest of him joining the academy in the original (Bruce Mahler), and last but not least there's the soft voiced Laverne Hooks (Marion Ramsey)

Start to see the decline
Police Academy 1 happened, everybody applauded. It made money so of course there had to be a sequel in mind. There’s not much that has changed save for a few characters here and there. But are you really watching this for the characters? OK, maybe you are and they thankfully brought most of them back. While this one was PG-13 rather than the R used for the first one, the movie is effective in using whatever gags it has up its sleeve this time around.
Police Academy 2 brings back most of the characters from the first movie that you loved. Not much has changed with them. At the beginning, Mahoney (Steve Guttenburg) is working at a beach and trying…
Foršs turpinājums foršai smieklu filmai.
Nu jau visi iepazītie varoņi ir kļuvuši par "īstiem" policistiem un šiem jādodās ielās, bet visādi mahinatori un sliktie kruķi grib šos visādos veidos iegāzt :) Ir jautri, parādās psihais Zeds un visi tie sliktie no ielām izskatās kā no Prince vai Michael Jackson klipiem :D
Ko te vēl piebilst?
Liekam jaunu bildi iekšā!
A lot less funny than the first film but with a bit more emphasis on storyline it's actually just as entertaining.
I'm a sucker for these movies...must be the age I was when these came out...but these are always funny to me. Yes, they are basically the same movie recycled, but who cares?
PA 1-5 just make me laugh and I am fine with that...
O mais divertido da cinessérie
Part 2 was equally as good as the first one. The characters are very funny and and hell breaks loose with captain Mausser. Good 80s comedy!
Earlier in the day (shortly after the site came up from being down and inoperative) I posted a review for the first Police Academy; I got the entire franchise in a Blu set imported from the UK but it was region free. Last night I saw both the original and this movie back to back, as 2 was one I did not see that often as a kid.
The second was more of the same; you have broad stereotypical characters, goofy humor-jokes about hairy palms and glue in someone's hair-laughs from such things as “a body cavity search”, bad puns... yet I can still say it's average. The plot here is that our heroes end up in “the worst precinct”…
Sometimes in life you just need to watch a movie where Steve Guttenberg shoves a balloon animal giraffe into his pants, and that movie is Police Academy 2.
The Police Academy series gets a bad rap among movie goers, most see it only as a crude and cheap line of cash ins, so I wasn't sure if I'd enjoy my first foray into the franchise (I honestly don't know why I started with the sequel). Thankfully though, I was pleasantly surprised at how funny and charming it was. Yes, most of the jokes are based around bodily functions and violence, or both at the same time, but it has such a big heart even the flattest jokes made me smile.…
...just some of my favourite sequels that I feel are better than the original. Only included one movie per franchise.…
