Police Academy 5: Assignment Miami Beach

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.

I can think of very few comedy franchises which could so much as hold a candle to this one. Unfortunately, this particular installment is more of a stumbling block than a success. While master thespians such as Bubba Smith and David Graf attempt(in hilarious fashion) to carry the comedic load, the film is lacking something. Of course that something is the brutal loss of the incomparable Steve Guettenberg and Bobcat Goldthwait. George Gaynes is terrific however, solidifying his career in the annals of entertainment(with this and Punky Brewster to his credit, I dare you to forget his name when debating who is the greatest actor of his generation). G.W. Bailey is as sinister as ever in portraying one of cinema's most heinous villains. I can only hope that this 'classic' lineup can somehow be pried away from their many other projects to reunite one last time and reprise the roles that moved us all.
