Police Academy 5: Assignment: Miami Beach (1988)

Commandant Lassard has finally reached retirement age and the whole gang fly down to Miami to watch him receive an award. The only problem is that he’s picked up the wrong bag at the airport and is now in possession of some stolen diamonds belonging to a bunch of crooks.

What could audiences have possibly done to deserve such torture? As this inane series continues, each episode becomes sillier and more slapdash than the last.

There’s no Steve Guttenberg in this one (he must have read the script), and all you need to know is that the bumbling cops, as the title suggests, visit Miami, which is the only thing that differentiates this extremely mediocre movie from the four that went before.
