About the Movie
America's most inept law enforcement team mixes business with pleasure as they head to sunny Florida in this comedy. The aging and often-confused head of the Police Academy, Commandant Lassard (George Gaynes), has reached mandatory retirement age, much to the pleasure of the devious Capt. Harris (G.W. Bailey), who is still scheming to take over his job. Lassard, Harris, and a handful of the Academy's "distinguished" graduates (including Bubba Smith, Michael Winslow, Leslie Easterbrook, and Marion Ramsey) travel to Miami Beach for a special ceremony to commemorate Lassard's years of service as he leaves the force; however, a luggage mix-up puts the clumsy cops in the middle of a massive illegal arms deal. Police Academy 5: Assignment Miami Beach was the first film in the long-running series that did not star Steve Guttenberg (Bob Goldthwait also left the franchise at this point), but most of the other regulars bravely soldiered on without him.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Miami field trip only brings a pastel backdrop to the insipid infighting of the boobs in blue.
Rotten: The real culprit is producer Paul Maslansky, the creator of the Academy films, clearly a man who can never be stopped, not even by a SWAT team of movie critics with blood in their eyes.
Rotten: It's business as usual: fart jokes.
Worst of them all!
The first police academy was good. The rest were bad and this one is absolutely terrible. There absolutely nothing fun about this movie only pain lots and lots of pain.
I fricken love these movies. They make me laugh every time. They are hilarious. LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL
"Very Funny Jones"
Even though Police Academy 5 and 6 are available, I really like the movies. The one character I always enjoy the most is Jones, the guy who makes those sound effects. Michael Winslow sure knows how to work that mouth of his for sounds.
