At Last The Collection Is Complete!
on 2 August 2005
At last all 7 Police Academy films are together in one collection:
Police Academy (1984) - It was 2o years ago that the first film was released in what would be a very popular series. The entire film is here with a behind the scenes "Where are they now" extra added to the disk (boy have some of them aged a bit!!!).
If you have never seen this film then you must watch it. Posibly one of the funniest films of the 80's bar none. Join Mahoney, Jones, Tackleberry, Hightower in a laugh a minute movie.
Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment (1985) - The recruits are let loose on the streets of America with hilarious results as they try to stop a gang led by Zed from causing havoc. We are also introduced to Mowser and Proctor, two who play pivital parts in the series. The disc also includes a behinds the scenes making over section.
Police Academy 3: Back in Training (1986) - Commandant Lassard's academy is under threat from Mowser's when it is declared only one academy can remain open. This means action is needed. Lasard calls on mahoney, Jones, Hightower and co to help keep the academy open by training recruits like Zed, who was the baddy in the last film. The results are hilarious. Again this includes a behind the scenes guide.
Police Academy 4: Citizens on Patrol (1987) - Lasard's plan is to start a C.O.P plan (Citizens on Patrol). To do this he enrols Mahoney and the gang to train the recruits whilst Harris and Proctor try their hardest to stop the scheme going ahead. Again this includes a behind the scenes guide.
Police Academy 5: Assignment: Miami Beach (1988) - Commandant Lassard has passed the retirement age and therefore must retire. In his honour it is decided that he will be honoured at a policeman's ball in Miami. Lassard takes his favourite staff, plus Harris & Proctor with him. However, things are not made easy as a Diamond thief gang also go to the same resort and a bag swap leads to loads of laughs. Again this includes a behind the scenes guide.
Police Academy 6: City Under Siege (1989) - A gang are running wild on the streets and seem to be avoiding capture. Everytime the police get near the gang seem to know what is going on. Is there a mole? It is upto our favourite police officer's to solve the crime and stop the gang. Again this includes a behind the scenes guide.
Police Academy: Mission to Moscow (1994) - Lassard takes a crew of officers to Russia. This is the start of the laughs as Lassard is "Kidnapped" by the Russian Mafia (well he get's the wrong taxi and ends up in a Russian Families house!). Although not as good as the originals this will still have you in stitches. Again this includes a behind the scenes guide.
If you have ever seen the Police Academy series then you know that this is a must. If not then buy it as I think you will be pleasantly suprised.
