Police Academy 2 – Their First Assignment

Follow-up features much of the original's cast but none of its key behind-the-scenes creative talent, save producer Paul Maslansky. Only actor to get any mileage out of this one is series newcomer Art Metrano, as an ambitious lieutenant bent upon taking over the department.

With the recruits assigned to saving the neighborhood from the grasp of marauding punks, Metrano does everything he can to make them fail, whereupon they exact some faintly amusing revenge upon him. Metrano somehow manages to shine in these murkiest of circumstances, and Michael Winslow has a couple of good moments doing his patented sound effects and engaging in some kung fu, complete with unsynchronized yells and screams.
