Police Academy 6 – City Under Siege

Commandant Lassard (George Gaynes) and his crack team are assigned to stop a wave of robberies, much to the chagrin of the cartoonish Captain Harris (G.W. Bailey). The crimes are committed by a trio with circus-like skills, keyed by a not-so-mysterious Mr. Big.

Director Peter Bonerz and writer Stephen J. Curwick (the latter taking his second Academy shift) both cut their teeth on TV sitcoms, and it shows. Rarely has a film cried out so desperately for a laughtrack.

Michael Winslow still has the funniest shtick with his seemingly limitless ability to perform vocal gymnastics – the film’s only truly amusing moment coming when he nails one of the bad guys, first as a badly dubbed ninja, then a herky-jerky robot.
