As a crime wave sweeps the city and the police department suffers a shortage of officers, the mayor decrees that admission to the Police Academy will be open to any and all applicants. Now the first cadets--a collection of oddballs, eccentrics and misfits--will soon be let loose on the streets ... if they somehow manage to graduate in this worldwide hit comedy that started the series of Police Academy films.

Common Sense Says
Sophomoric '80s cop-spoof has profanity, sex, stereotypes.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Police Academy is a classic of '80s cop-spoof films but it is not for kids. The sophomoric humor is rooted in one-dimensional character stereotypes, and there is frequent profanity, as well as nudity, sex, and violence. Furthermore, unlike similar '80s movies like Airplane!, Meatballs, and Caddyshack, Police Academy's "so dumb it's funny" brand of comedy hasn't aged well. Parents looking to share with their kids the '80s movies of their youth are encouraged to look elsewhere.
