This Shouldn't ruin the film for you. I've never been good with summaries.
This may not have been THE best of the Police Academy film series, but it also wasn't the worst. As with most comedy film series, old and new elements(and characters) are mixed together to bring you a new chapter to the continuing story. Some of the "gags" may be similar, but unless you're going to sit down and watch all seven of the films back-to-back-to-back-to-back.., you may not notice. The Academy Officers go down to Florida to honor Commodant Eric Lassard (George Gaynes). Eric's nephew joins in as the new male lead, taking over for Steve Guttenberg's 'Carey MaHony' character. Comedy insues along with a chase, or two. It's great when a sequel comes along, and most (if not all) of the original cast shows up, too! In this case, most do! :)

Quotes

Goofs

(at around 35 mins) When Hightower throws the Frisbee at Proctor, you can see the wire pulling Proctor up as he flies out of shot.


Alternate Versions

On Network TV versions of the film, 2 scenes are added to fill time. One scene had Captain Harris and Lieutenant Proctor arriving at the hotel in Miami with a goat they had on their airplane. One scene occurs in the Police showcase area where people are trying out various items such as pepper spray, handcuffs, and bulletproof car shields; Tony is seen talking to a friend of his named Larry. He tries to get Larry to talk Commandant Lassard into giving him the camera with the stolen diamonds in it by telling him a story of how his dead wife had a camera just like the one Lassard's carrying. Feeling pity for him, Lassard is about to hand Larry the camera until Larry asks "is there anything I could do for you in return". Lassard says yes and has Larry take an official Police fingerprint identification test. Larry's discovered to be "a known felon" and he runs off without the camera. Tony and his goons walk casually away followed by Tony getting upset and hitting a police car shield with his hand and hurting it.
