The Police Academy films follow one of two Narrative styles, the first style which is used in the first, third and fourth films, features the Academy prominently whilst the Bad Guys only appear at the end, whilst the second style used in the second, fifth, sixth and seventh films consists of brief uses of the Academy whilst the Bad Guys are featured throughout the film.

Harris didn't need to break into the Commissioner's office to get Lassard's file. As Lassard is a police officer, thus a public employee, his personnel file is a public record. All Harris would have to do is ask for it. See more »
On Network TV versions of the film, 2 scenes are added to fill time. One scene had Captain Harris and Lieutenant Proctor arriving at the hotel in Miami with a goat they had on their airplane. One scene occurs in the Police showcase area where people are trying out various items such as pepper spray, handcuffs, and bulletproof car shields; Tony is seen talking to a friend of his named Larry. He tries to get Larry to talk Commandant Lassard into giving him the camera with the stolen diamonds in it by telling him a story of how his dead wife had a camera just like the one Lassard's carrying. Feeling pity for him, Lassard is about to hand Larry the camera until Larry asks "is there anything I could do for you in return". Lassard says yes and has Larry take an official Police fingerprint identification test. Larry's discovered to be "a known felon" and he runs off without the camera. Tony and his goons walk casually away followed by Tony getting upset and hitting a police car shield with his hand and hurting it. See more »
This Isn't a perfect Film by any means, the regulars try their best and evoke some laughs particularly ' George Gaynes' as Lassard the Film does lack a certain fineese without the Inclusion Of Steve Guttenberg.
Overall Its not as bad as some Reviews suggest, watchable but only once.
(But compared to Police Academy 6 and 7 It looks like "Citizen Kane")
