Call them slobs. Call them jerks. Call them gross. Just don't call them when you're in trouble.

New rules enforced by the Lady Mayoress mean that sex, weight, height and intelligence need no longer be a factor for joining the Police Force. This opens the floodgates for all and sundry to enter the Police Academy, much to the chagrin of the instructors. Not everyone is there through choice, though. Social misfit Mahoney has been forced to sign up as the only alternative to a jail sentence and it doesn't take long before he falls foul of the boorish Lieutenant Harris. But before long, Mahoney realises that he is enjoying being a police cadet and decides he wants to stay... while Harris decides he wants Mahoney out!

Police Academy - Dümmer als die Polizei erlaubt

Hier tobt die beknackteste, verrückteste und ausgeflippteste Polizei-Truppe aller Zeiten. Ein wild zusammengewürfelter Haufen: Tölpel, Freizeitsheriffs und total unfähige Taugenichtse melden sich zum Dienst. Die Ausbilder versuchen vergeblich, die Rekruten hinzubiegen. Die Witzfiguren in Uniform, die zuerst schießen, bevor sie ihr Gehirn einschalten, versetzen die hilfesuchenden Bürger der Stadt in Angst und Schrecken.

Une école de police ouverte à tous candidats sans qualifications particulières accueille bientôt le turbulent Carey Mahoney. Un individu qui fera tout pour s’en faire renvoyer avec l’aide de ses camarades tout aussi farfelus.

Italy Italian (Italiano)

Scuola di polizia

C’è da rimpolpare l’organico e le reclute arrivano. Per i cadetti della polizia non ci sono più parametri di altezza, peso e altro da rispettare. Anche il cervello è diventato un optional. Non sanno come si scrive QI? Temono che il Numero Verde possa scolorire? Non importa. Chi esce dalla Scuola di Polizia è pronto a garantire legge e…disordine!

Part of Police Academy Collection

Police Academy is a series of American comedy films, the first six of which were made in the 1980s. The seventh and to date last installment, Mission to Moscow, was released in 1994. The new film is scheduled for production for 2014. The series opened with Police Academy (1984) which started with the premise that a new mayor had announced a policy requiring the police department to accept all willing recruits. The movie followed a group of misfit recruits in their attempts to prove themselves capable of being police officers. The main character, Carey Mahoney (Steve Guttenberg), was a repeat offender who was forced to join the police academy as punishment.
