Plot

Ever since her ladyship the mayor announced that there would no longer be discrimination as to who can join the police academy, there has been an influx of misfits from all walks of life signing on to be cops in the movie Police Academy.

From the tough looking Moses Hightower (played by Bubba Smith) who likes to tends to his flower garden to Larvell Jones (played by Michael Winslow whose voice can imitate almost everything that he hears, these guys with weird personalities are all part of the Academy. Carey Mahoney (played by Steve Guttenberg) spearheads the group, opting for the academy rather than his jail sentence. And he’s the one they want to get out of the force the most in the movie Police Academy.
