Unfortunately, there are plenty of other segments with a lot of long and dull exchanges and some seriously overdone and tasteless mayhem (the supermarket trashing is absolutely horrendous).
The biggest weakness of the sequel, however, is its inability to retain that feeling from the first film that the rookies belong together.
Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Jerry Paris' Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Warner Bros. The master that was used to produce this release was probably prepared at the same time when the master for the first Police Academy film was finalized. Generally speaking, delineation and clarity gravitate between decent and good, and pretty much the same amount of light black crush can be seen popping up in various places.
On this release, however, some of the daylight footage occasionally makes it easier to realize that depth is not optimal (see screencaptures #8 and 9).
Even without the doofus, however, the rookies routinely get in a lot of trouble and eventually it begins to look like it is only a matter of time before Chief Lassard is ordered to pack up his personal belongings and go home.
In one last and desperate effort to save Chief Lassard and restore the image of the rookies, Mahoney becomes a street punk and after 'accidentally' befriending two members of the violent gang proceeds to destroy it from within.
For example, Tacklberry completely loses his mind after he hooks up with Kirkland and after their date he is basically completely gone.
It is also difficult to ignore the fact that both Hightower (Bubba Smith) and Hooks (Marion Ramsey) are totally underused.
Synopsis: Mahoney and friends have graduated from the Police Academy (1984) and are issued with their first assignments.
