Rebecca DeMornay and Mary Gross are FBI academy trainees in a buddy picture that plays more like a biddy picture. There isn't a fresh idea or a new one-liner in all of the script, an anthology of inert retreads from the Police Academy series and Private Benjamin.

Rebecca DeMornay and Mary Gross are FBI academy trainees in a buddy picture that plays more like a biddy picture. There isn’t a fresh idea or a new one-liner in all of the script, an anthology of inert retreads from the Police Academy series and Private Benjamin.

DeMornay as the spunky athletic one and Gross as the uptight, studious one go up against the boys in pizza contests, chin-up exercises and constitutional law classes. They ultimately graduate at the end of the class but not before undergoing considerable humiliation.

Gross trying to stop some bank robbers by making a stick-’em-up gesture with her finger and later garbling her recitation of the Miranda rights to some poor extras cast in this film is groaner material. Dan Goldberg’s direction is leaden.
