Police Academy 6: City Under Siege (1989)

If you laughed at the fact that Pete Bonerz directed this movie, then this is the movie for you.

This time, Harris and Proctor must work with the good guys to apprehend the Mastermind, whose gang is running wild all over town. Bonus points to him for getting Gerrit Graham (TerrorvisionPhantom of the Paradise) to join up!

Commandant Lassard (George Gaynes) assembles his finest men and women for the case, including Hightower (Bubba Smith), Tackleberry (David Graf), Jones (Michael Winslow), Hooks (Marion Ramsey), Callahan (Leslie Easterbrook), Fackler (Bruce Mahler), and Mahoney replacement and his nephew, Nick (Matt McCoy).

Billie Byrd is in this, but she’s playing a totally different role and not Mrs. Feldman, so if you demand continuity in your 80’s comedies, you’re out of luck.

That is, however, Grandmaster Melle Mel in this. And Allison Mack, the one-time Smallville actress who charged with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy as part of her role in the NXIVM sex cult. Who would have guessed?

The following year Paul Maslansky would produce Ski Patrol, which he had hoped would replace Police Academy and have several sequels. It failed, as did this movie. There wouldn’t be another Police Academy film for five more years.
