Police Academy 4 - Citizens on Patrol
In the third sequel to the hit comedy Police Academy, Commandant Lassard (George Gaynes) decides that the police force is overworked and understaffed, and he comes up with the idea of recruiting civilian volunteers to work side-by-side with his officers.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Jim Drake is credited with the direction and Gene Quintano with the script, though they'd probably appreciate it if you kept it to yourself."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Tribune
"More of the same from the wackiest police force on the streets, and their newly recruited civilian helpers."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"Director Jim Drake keeps things moving so quickly, one barely has time to notice just how stale the jokes here are."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Quite possibly the least essential movie ever made. A call to arming the elderly."
‑ Martin Scribbs, Low IQ Canadian
"What's so amazing about the Police Academy movies is that they keep being made even though they stopped being funny after the hilarious original."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"The new players, like the original ones (who are still here in full force), are limited to one-shtick roles and are sometimes even more limited than that."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Oh dear...oh dear, oh dear..."
‑ Ian Freer, Empire Magazine
"Not a highlight of the series. Loses the fun feel of incompetent cops in a complicated citizen plot."
‑ Fred Topel, About.com
"Script is merely a collection of gags tied together by the slightest suggestion of a story."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Just when you think American film comedy has hit the bottom of the barrel, it makes a supreme effort and keeps sinking."
‑ Richard Harrington, Washington Post
"They really did just keep getting worse and worse."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"There's nothing remotely arresting about the recycled and pointless roguish antics being drudged up once again in another tired and tedious Police Academy sequel. This bunch should lock the cell door and throw away the kooky keys!"
‑ Frank Ochieng, Movie Eye
