Miami field trip only brings a pastel backdrop to the insipid infighting of the boobs in blue.

The jokes are all on Capt. Harris (G.W. Bailey) this time out, as he makes a disastrous attempt to unseat Cmdt Lassard (George Gaynes), aging leader of this dunce-cap police academy, by pulling out a mandatory retirement clause. Lassard’s last act is to address a Miami police convention, which gives his downhearted but loyal graduates an excuse to follow him there for some surfside antics.

At Miami airport, Lassard crosses paths with some excitable crooks, and in the old luggage switcheroo, ends up in possession of some diamonds they’ve heisted. The trio of baddies, led by Rene Auberjonois, spends the rest of the film trying to get them back from the blissfully unaware, graciously idiotic Lassard.

The usual crew – minus Steve Guttenberg or Bobcat Goldthwait, but with Tab Thacker, a Fat Albert lookalike, taking both seats – is ostensibly on vacation while in Miami.
