Comedy Classic a Bit Rough Around the Edges

Police Academy seems like one of those movies where a screenwriter thought of one good joke and decided to write an entire movie around it. Unfortunately this isn't the correct way to write a screenplay.

Don't get me wrong, this movie does have its moments. This one's filled with about 1,000 jokes so at least a few of them are going to stick. And if you can look past all the casual racism, sexism, and homophobia, this movie probably has some charm to it, which I guess is why it spawned so many sequels. Watching this in 2017 had me cringing at a few of the jokes and words used. Different era I guess...

The best part about this movie is the memorable characters. The plot is flimsy at best so these actors are the only thing keeping this movie afloat. Guttenburg and the gang are all one dimensional characters with some type of odd character trait played for laughs but for the most part this works to an extend. All the "good cops" played their parts well. I can easily see these characters getting old sequel after sequel however.

Conclusion: An okay comedy that's a bit rough around the edges. Not something you should go out of your way to see but you could do worse.

Iconic 80s Comedy

A group of good-hearted but incompetent misfits enter the police academy, but the instructors there are not going to put up with their pranks.

This is just one of those iconic 1980s comedies. Between this film, its six sequels, a TV series, a comic book and more, it really became part of popular culture in a big way. Heck, Steve Guttenberg was sort of the defining comedic actor of the 1980s (and then disappeared).

Although many of the actors are best known for their roles here, it is worth noting that Kim Cattrall plays an important role and she remained popular right up through "Sex and the City". Leslie Easterbrook also stayed strong through the 2000s, something many of the cast cannot claim.

I had forgotten how funny this one is.

I guess seeing parts of one or two of the sequels had soured me on the franchise. But, this original is hilarious. And did I mention that it is about the most NON-POLITICALLY-CORRECT movie ever. Did I mention that I an giving it an extra star for driving today's politically-correct fools crazy. Can you imagine how many blood vessels pop whenever one of today's politically-correct fools dares to watch this? Countless. I recommend all of today's colleges show Police Academy & Animal House non-stop in all their official "safe spaces". I'm giving another star for Bubba Smith. Beyond that, well, good speech.
