What Parents Need to Know

logo for common sense media

Parents need to know that Police Academy is a classic of '80s cop-spoof films but it is not for kids. The sophomoric humor is rooted in one-dimensional character stereotypes, and there is frequent profanity, as well as nudity, sex, and violence. Furthermore, unlike similar '80s movies like Airplane!, Meatballs, and Caddyshack, Police Academy's "so dumb it's funny" brand of comedy hasn't aged well. Parents looking to share with their kids the '80s movies of their youth are encouraged to look elsewhere.
