This might be the only comedy series where jumping the shark was the best thing to happen to it. This first film is just kinda bland, a dopey attempt at recapturing the comedy magic of Meatballs and Stripes (Boy, Ivan Reitman was good, wasn't he? Or maybe just consistently lucky? Take your pick.). But hey, ain't no Christmas Eve party like a Police Academy party, right?
