Steve Gutenberg meets his acting rival in Bobcat Goldthwait. What a treat for the audience...and by treat, I mean agonizing waste of time. I must say, however, I love what they did with the Old Zoo...I'd love to live there. Minus the super pussy gang, of course.

It astounds me that someone saw the first film and thought, "What people want is more of this! This is comedy gold on a stick!" For shame, pityful fool.

Easily the best Police Academy film. The introduction of the character of Zed which is essentially what makes the entire series worth it. Also some of the most memorable scenes of the series (the Jones/Bruce Lee scene is always a winner). Of course, if you've seen one of them you've seen them all so don't expect anything new.

As all the P.A. movies this one too is idiotic and offensive to one's intelligence. My 21 points go to Bobcat Goldthwait's Zed.

Not as good as the first one. In other words, even worse.

Steve Guttenberg used to be the lead in movies. That statement is historically accurate.

I liked it better than the first one, still wasn't very good. Bobcat definitely stole the show; leaving his brittle, manic, grating, whiny, bleak, wounded, misanthropic, self-effacing stage persona completely unaltered to play the cheerfully (yes, even with all those adjectives I just used) nihilistic Zed.

As my first Police Academy movie, I am simply amazed, I cannot believe how awful the first sequel of so many could be. It's as if the Police Academy series is some sort of enormous joke played on all mankind. There must be someone out there laughing at us every time these movies are on TV, not because the movies are funny, but because we watch them. The sad thing is, the only reason I rated this one so high, is because I KNOW I'll need room to rate the rest much much lower.

I actually used to like these films as a kid, but they seem to get worse as I get older.

This movie doesn't really build upon the legacy of the original movie so much as it just keeps moving forward. With the addition of the great Howard Hesseman, the casting is just as likable as the original movie. I like that Michael Winslow was given a bigger part in this movie, but Bubba Smith wasn't in the foreground as much as I would have liked. I hope this movie doesn't signify the decline of this series.

The first Police Academy was quite funny, in all its silliness. But not so funny its jokes could be prolonged to carry a sequel (not to mention multiple sequels, I bet without seeing them beyond this one).

(Viewed on 27/02/12): P.A 2 has always been underrated. Sure it's dumb as a bag of rocks, Easterbrook's absence is felt, and Mauser isn't as good as Harris--although he is played with hilariously dopey assurance by Metrano--but it gets by on the likeability of its rogues gallery of misfits and outcasts. It also introduced many new ones too, like Sweetchuck and Zed, complete cartoons that Zazurinsky and Goldthwait wholeheartedly embrace. Camp also shines as Tuckleberry's female equivalent.

I seem to be alone in rating this as comparable to the first in terms of overall enjoyment. It's stupid for sure but works fine as a light (dated) comedy and like the first has a good mix of likable characters with Goldthwait's Zed a standout as an unconventional and amusing main villain.

About as good a sequel as you could possibly hope for, though there are a lot of dry stretches between the gags that work (hairy palms, Goldthwait being Goldthwait) and some of the cast members who don’t return are missed (Bailey and Gaynes’ negligible appearances). One can’t help but think that Guttenberg is purely here for contractual reasons, as he more or less completely disappears into the rabble. Passable enough.

The first four films will all rate over 90 for me. That's all I need to say. I often base films on how many times I rented them growing up. I probably rented this one 16 times.

I'm not entirely sure whether it was because I saw the third Police Academy film first, but I thought this wasn't quite as good as the third. It's stupid, poorly done in some areas but is infectiously charming, yet again mainly thanks to the characters played by Winslow and Goldthwait who inject a lot of energy into the whole Police Academy series in general. It's worth the watch if you're a fan of the series, probably not for anyone who wasn't taken by any other other Police Academies.

Who doesn't like Bob Goldthwait essentially playing himself, and the hilarious antics of Michael Winslow? OK, OK...they're a little tired at this point.

The characters and constant gaggery of the first installment have already lost their charm. It's sad that this is only the first of the many terrible sequels. Crap!
