Who ever thought being at a police academy would be so much fun.

Police Academy is the first of many films from this series. Since this was the 80's and this film was very successful and like all profitable films there's only one alternative, milk the cash cow until it's dry. Like most of these films, the first one is the best and most creative of the bunch. The film follows a bunch of losers and outcasts who join the local police academy for various reasons. The main character is Mahoney (played by Steve Guttenberg) a man with a shady past who enrolls in the academy as an alternative punishment for a previous criminal act. He becomes the motley crew's leader and representative.

This movie made Guttenberg a star and it started a film series that would live on D.T.V. and make the producers a lot of money. It also gave people jobs and made others into minor stars. I found this movie to be very entertaining. If you're into juvenile humor and a bunch of cheap laughs then I recommend this movie. Others need not apply. Followed by six sequels!
