Toning down the smut for a PG-rating, and bringing in veteran comedy director Paris, who made his feature debut with 1968's Jerry Lewis vehicle Don't Raise the Bridge, Lower the River, ensured slightly more in the way of comic consistency for this modest sequel. The local commander of a precinct swamped by a crimewave drafts in a sextet of raw recruits from the police training academy run by his brother, with predictably chaotic consequences. Guttenberg again has little to do but wonder where his career's going after the likes of Diner and Cocoon, yet newcomer Goldthwait's bizarre falsetto and singular body language announce the arrival of a genuinely eccentric presence.
