HOLD EVERYTHING! THE CADETS ARE DROPPING IN ON MIAMI BEACH FOR AN ALL NEW ADVENTURE.
Lassard (George Gaynes) is flying to Miami to accept an award and the old cadets are going with him; a jewel thief becomes a minor problem. The reason why this entry is one of the series’ worst is not because of Steve Guttenberg’s departure. It’s because old jokes that were never funny in the first place are once again recycled. Rene Auberjonois as the jewel thief could have given the movie a shot in the arm, but that does not happen.
1988-U.S. 90 min. Color. Directed by Alan Myerson. Cast: Bubba Smith (Moses Hightower), George Gaynes (Eric Lassard), G.W. Bailey (Thaddeus Harris), David Graf, Michael Winslow, Leslie Easterbrook.
Trivia: Followed by Police Academy 6: City Under Siege (1989).
