Watch out! A wacky wizard of Ozzy and his band of merry punkers are on the prowl. They’re leveling their spray cans and painting the town red…or any color of graffiti they please. Never mind the misspellings. If you see this leathered and studded gang of pinheaded pranksters, run – don’t walk – the other way. Because they’re also emptying the pockets of anyone sharing the sidewalk.
In the wake of this new wave crime wave, you might be wondering where the educational system has gone wrong. But relax, America. Think of the Police Academy. Now that’s the kind of school you can trust. And guess what? The raw recruits of Police Academy are back! When this hilarious bunch of oddballs in blue tangles with the painting punkers, you’re in for an open-and-shut case of nonstop laughter called Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment.
Among those again answering law enforcement’s most uproarious roll call are likable meathead Mahoney (Steve Guttenberg), florist-turned-flatfoot Hightower (Bubba Smith), wild-eyed weapons freak Tackleberry (Dave Graf), squeaky-voiced Hooks (Marion Ramsey), sound effects whiz-kid Larvelle (Michael Winslow) and the impeccably inept academy commandant Eric Lassard (George Gaynes).
Newcomers to the hijinks and handcuffs include Howard Hesseman (of TV’s WKRP in Cincinnati) as the precinct captain, Tim Kazurinsky (of Saturday Night Live) as a fuddy-duddy nerd’s nerd and Bob Goldthwait as Zed, the Ozzy Osbourne-like gangleader who, in the absence of bats, chews up scenes with outrageous punk style.
America welcomed the return of its bumbling, gut-busting crime-busters in a most noticeable way, as Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment recorded the biggest springtime opening in box-office history. So why not see for yourself what all the furor – and fun – is about? For the first time in your life, you’ll be glad there’s a riot – a laugh-riot – in the streets!
