A group of incompetent cops from Reno arrive in Miami to participate in a big convention… but they end up fighting bad guys instead. The 2003-2009 TV show is transferred to the big screen in a way that will satisfy its loyal fans; it is certainly not as bad as Police Academy 5 (1988), which had a similar plot, but the steady stream of jokes is uneven. You need a childish sense of humor to truly appreciate the low-brow style, which is ably upheld, but sustaining an entire movie is not easy. The actors’ enthusiasm remains an asset.
