Police Academy

Now that Kim Cattrall’s fully ensconced as an international taboo-breaking doyenne of sophisticated comedy, what better time to show this? Apparently that bloke who made the funny noises was originally a shoo-in for the role of Niles in Frasier. “Look Niles, this is utterly preposterous! How can you possibly deign to lecture me on the state of my relationships when you and Maris haven’t so much as spoken to each other since that Gore Vidal evening at the Tennenbaums’?” “Prrrrrkkkp! Frrrrit! Pyoyyyng! Awoowoowoowoowoo!”

    This is the very first film we hired from our local video club when the family eventually bought a video recorder. I must have watched it hundreds of times since and certain bits still make me laugh. A shame that the subsequent movies in the series were sanitised to appeal to a more “family” audience (namely no proper swears and no full frontal nudity or blatant sexual activity)
