| Classic comedy that's still funny
This movie is one of the best comedies of the 80s. It's a great ensemble comedy in the tradition of Caddyshack. Steve Guttenberg is hilarious and Michael Winslow's "human sound machine" abilities are amazing. The movie features a sexy Kim Cattrall long before "Sex and the City" and a fantastic cast of supporting characters.

Yes, it's a bit silly, but everyone needs to be silly sometimes. Some material may be inappropriate for small children, but Policy Academy is a must-see for older kids and adults who like to laugh.

The sequels go downhill and are more of the same, but #2 and #3 are still worth renting.
