The review of this Movie prepared by Simon Webb

Polica Academy... What can I say... It was the movie that produced series of the worst sequels to date ( PA:s 3,5 and 7 are disaster movies!). But still, even though it's silly humor and unbelievably poor plot might drive you insane, it is still pretty nostalgic to see this first one.
