Police Academy


Hugh Wilson

When the mayor announces that anyone can join the police force, the academy is swamped with new recruits all wanting to be law enforcement officers, often with comical and hilarious results. Among the memorable cadets are Mahoney (Guttenberg), Hightower (Smith), Tackleberry (Graf) and Jones (Winslow).
Six sequels were made, each steadily worse than the last. The first four are definitely worth a viewing though.
The location of the Academy training was filmed in Toronto in an abandoned psychiatric hospital (according to the commentary track on the Special Edition DVD).
