Hightower, you couldn't have summed it up more perfectly

As has been said before in my reviews for the previous five 'Police Academy' films, the best of the 'Police Academy' films will always be the original by quite some way. It isn't great and will never be a favourite comedy or overall film of mine, but it clearly knew what it wanted to be so it was easy to take it for what it was and what it set out to do.

It was followed by six sequels, and none of them were as good or even on the same level as the first, though admittedly some are worse than others. Most of them are actually being pretty bad or worse and lose what was enjoyable about the original in the first place. While it was with the fourth film where things properly got particularly stale, it was from the fifth film where finding redeeming qualities proved to be difficult.

'Police Academy 6' is one of the series' worst, with very little to recommend and almost completely laughter-free. It is just saved from unsalvageable doom by Michael Winslow, Bubba Smith and George Gaynes giving their all, with the best moments provided with Winslow's admittedly one-joke but wry-smile-worthy imitations and noises and the best line being Hightower's wonderfully apt line about bad jokes being where he drew the line.

The rest of the acting really isn't good, with the rest of the regulars struggling to bring any freshness to basically one-joke and ridiculously lame-brained characters or having very little to do (especially Leslie Easterbrook and Marion Ramsey reduced to just looking alluring, while GW Bailey is pretty much wasted this time). Matt McCoy is a hopelessly bland and unbearably wooden lead, couldn't have been a worse substitute for Steve Guttenberg. The villain is neither fun or threatening (as bad as the fifth film was, Rene Auberjonois actually at least livened things up if only a little) and Kenneth Mars is basically a cartoon.

Bigger letdowns are the writing and story. There is in 'Police Academy 6' some truly infantile writing, that swaps genuine hilarity, wit and cleverness for mean-spirit, low-brow smut and juvenile vulgarity. It was the case in the previous sequels too, but not to this extent and they still raised a couple of chuckles, something that this film completely struggled, in all but maybe two times (and even with them the series has been much funnier), to do. The characters are one-joke ones with the joke stretched to not just staleness but breaking point, and are so bumbling and dumb it insults the intelligence. This is even when you know what to expect.

Story wise, the series just gets lazier with each sequel. The premise was stale by the fourth film but now it is a case of an increasingly thin and repetitive premise stretched to breaking point.

There is no energy, the film is ineptly directed, the music is forgettable at best and even with trying to include a few noir-ish elements the whole film looks cheap.

Overall, even more of a mess than the previous film. 2/10 Bethany Cox

Not Quite as Good as the First Two Movies in the Series

With a huge crime wave gripping the city "the Mayor" (played by Kenneth Mars) has decided to task "Commissioner Lassard" (George Gaynes) with the mission to catch those responsible. Naturally, he then turns to his most trusted police officers who have helped him out on so many missions before. Unfortunately, "Captain Harris" (G. W. Bailey)--who happens to be in charge of the precinct where most of these crimes are occurring--doesn't especially like the fact that an outsider like Commissioner Lassard has taken over. That being said, Captain Harris therefore has no intention of cooperating unless absolutely forced to do so. Yet, while Commissioner Lassard may have no idea of how troublesome Captain Harris can be, those officers loyal to the Commissioner understand only too well and fully realize that they will have two challenges facing them—the crooks and some in their own department. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this film pretty much reused the same old gags of the previous 5 movies in the series with the only exception being that a couple of them had slightly more depth. For example, one specific scene involving "Officer Jones" (Michael Winslow) doing an imitation of Jimi Hendrix was especially humorous. Even so, the fact of the matter is that this particular film still wasn't quite as good as the first two movies in the series and for that reason I have rated it as slightly below average.

Police Academy 6: City Under Siege

Number six and the plots keep getting simpler each time round. This time its a gang that are on a crime spree and its up to our boys n girls in blue to save the day. Naturally someone is behind this whole operation so be prepared for a truly ball bustin' twist...nah not really.

Yet again I am amazed at the continuity of these films and the fact all of the cast are still present and correct...bar Guttenberg who went AWOL after number four. This time round we have all the regular officers plus Fackler makes a welcome return and Nick Lassard is still here replacing Mahoney.

First time ever we actually have a PA film where there aren't any training sequences, this time its all about the main team going up against a trio of super criminals. The criminals are actually quite good too I might add, totally clichéd of course but they are meant to be equals for three of the main PA characters. One guy is a huge bald fat biker looking dude, his strength is errr...strength, so he goes up against Hightower. Then we have a slim athletic guy who is good at martial arts and gymnastics, guess who he goes up against. And finally a smooth well dressed ladies man type who is a sharp shooter and dead eye with guns...yep, Tackleberry.

This film relies more on bumbling cops n robbers type of stuff, Harris and Proctor getting set up and constantly missing the chance to make a simple arrest. Not so many pranks, nudity or rudeness, just simple childish 'Pink Panther' styled buffoonery but more idiotic and predictable if that's possible.

Kenneth Mars tries to liven up the film with his cartoonish Mayor character but it falls flat. You can see they are trying to capture the madness he brought to 'Young Frankenstein' but it just doesn't work, too stupid and not funny. I did like Gerrit Graham as the aptly named Ace (the sharp shooter criminal) and the little showdown between the three criminals and three officers, the best bit in the film really. Bailey does well again as Harris but the few pranks are way too infantile this time.

Over all its not a bad film really, its still better than number four and about on par with number five. I do like the darkly lit, noir- ish visuals they attempt in this one, clearly going for that Bogart-like detective quality in places. The whole thing is actually more akin to a typical pulp comic book adaptation, along the lines of 'Dick Tracy' or 'The Shadow'...albeit a very dumb simplified version. So kudos for that approach, not great by any means but a fair effort bearing in mind this is the sixth film.
