I missed Guttenberg
If he was still in the movie it would have been better.share
True, because you would have Harris squaring off against him.share

Yeah, Nick is not as funny and entertaining as Mahoney.share
Not even close. He felt like a Mahoney wannabe, too, instead of making him a unique character.share
I thought Officer Kyle Rumford (David Spade) from PA 4 would have made a much better substitute for Mahoney than Nick Lassard. Kyle was practically a younger version of Mahoney, with his penchant for pranks, riling up Captain Harris and hitting on the ladies. But David Spade wasn't as well known then, as he would later become, so the filmmakers might not have had enough confidence in him to carry the franchise as a lead performer.share
I agree. It is a good movie compared to #4. #4 had too many lame moments.
The "Gutte" should have accepted to star in this one.
In 1987, Guttenberg was all over the place. He started the year with the sexy thriller, Bedroom Window. Bedroom Window was basically a rip-off of Hitchcock’s classic, Rear Window. It was written and directed by Curtis Hanson who would go on to greater things like LA Confidential.share
Bedroom Window got mostly positive reviews. Unfortunately, it didn’t do much at the box office. But it developed a cult following on video over the years.
Since Guttenberg’s Police Academy checks kept clearing, he starred in Police Academy 4: Citizens on Patrol co-starring Sharon Stone.
It’s easy to look back and criticize Guttenberg for appearing in 4 Police Academy movies. They were obviously crap. But audiences loved them and they provided Guttenberg with steady work for four straight years. Decades later, these are the films he is still best known for.
Police Academy 4 was Guttenberg’s last film in the franchise. With hits like Cocoon and Short Circuit, he no longer needed the safety net they provided.
