Movie Night: Police Academy

Tonight’s Movie Night is the second of the bye weeks, with the “unseen classic” reasoning. I’m sure most of you have either seen this already or at least know about it. An inoffensive comedy featuring numerous jokes that have already been used in other places, so I guess this is where they got the ideas from. I agree with my brother, that it’s good to see a comedy that doesn’t just resort to crass, common-denominator style humour. Well, most of the time, anyway.

Overall, I’d recommend it as part of a block of movies. It struggles a little on its own, and I’m not sure how well it would stand up over time. You know, more than has already passed. I’d give it a 3/5.
