Movie Recommendation of the Week: Police Academy 5, Assignment Miami Beach

I can’t believe I’m actually endorsing this movie but I have to.  I haven’t brought up any of the Police Academy movies on this site and for whatever reason this one seems to be my favorite.

It might be one of the dumbest movies I’ll ever recommend on this site but I just like it.   Sue me.    Anyway, here’s a short bio on Police Academy 5 for those of you who are interested:

The old captain Lassard, chief of the police academy, goes to Florida to receive an award. In the city arrives also the cynic captain Harris who wants to take Lassard’s job. Harris wants to place himself in a favorable light in front of the high military hierarchy but, at the airport, Lassard exchanges his bag with another one.  One that contains diamonds heisted by crooks.

Of course the rest of the movie involves these dumb crooks trying to get the old bag back.  What ensues is a bunch of slapstick comedy and stupidity and for whatever reason left me quite entertained.   Eh, what can I say?   Once in a while it’s nice to have some mindless humor.

Check out the trailer after the jump…


Again, I admit how dumb this is, but I like it.

  1. I haven’t seen this movie in ages but I agree that it’s a must see. I would put the whole series in the same category as the Planet of the Apes and Friday the 13th and some others that shuold have stopped long before they did. I would probably recommend one of the other planet of the ape movies for a must see. either the 3rd or the 4th. The second was practically a rewrite of the first.
