I thought this movie was great when I was 11 and as an early teen, I loved the sequels (up to 4). Hated 5 and after. Just rewateched the original for the first time since then and man, what a piece of crap. How perceptions change. I don't think I laughed more than a couple of times and it was always when Michael Winslow was doing his voice work. How the hell did this spawn so many sequels?

I give this movie 2 Blue Oyster Bars out of 5.

I used to love these movies as a kid, especially the first 2! I havent revisisted, im sure they havent aged well. The made too many sequels and i remember them getting worse. Ill always remember mahoney, tackleberry, hightower,etc. The music is also scarred into my brain! Who can forget the blue oyster song?!

I hated these as a kid. First one was OK, but they went downhill fast. My cousin dragged us to one of the sequels as a young teenager, I remember it being one of the least funny things I ever saw.

This was more my speed:



Still not funny, but with Linnea Quigley and Ginger Lynn Allen, who cares?

As a teen, I remember falling in love with that chick from part 4 - Zed's girlfriend, played by Corinne Bohrer. I also remember doing very poor Bobcat impressions (a la part 2) in my Junior High Math class.

Chainsaw - i remember the cartoon. "Hooray for the police academy". It came a little too late after the series was begining to fade away. I remember the toys too. As kid i wanted those hand cuffs that were shaped like real hands.

Only remember two things about the cartoon...the intro with the rap song and an episode with a guy in a vulture costume stealing stuff.
Also I think there was a really s**tty live action series after that with some of the original actors in it.

Yes, there was. A TV show that lasted only 1 season (1997-1998.) This is not the cartoon series, which lasted for 2 seasons (1988-1989.) And, of course, wouldn't you know they tried to reboot the film series, which--fortunately or unfortunately--went into "developmental hell" in 2003.

I re-visited the original "P.A." on Netflix a year or so ago and yea, I still chuckled even though it hadn't aged particularly well.

I have only vague memories of the short lived TV series but I think Michael "Larvell Jones" Winslow was the only cast member from the movies to appear in it.

I thought the first one was okay, but the others were pitiful. I think I stopped watching them after #3.
