Vice Academy Part 2 - 1/5

Well I won't lie, "Vice Academy Part 2" was exactly like I expected it to be: A lame sequel to a lame film that is a rip-off of the slightly less lame "Police Academy" franchise. It's basically an exact carbon copy of the first film and why not as that was what fans wanted and that is exactly what writer / director /producer / editor Rick Sloane provided. Since I wasn't a fan of the original it should come as no surprise that I'm not a fan of this sequel either... to put it lightly.

Our film opens with Ginger Lynn Allan returning in her role as Holly by breaking the fourth wall and talking to the audience. Just what I want, a shitty film talking to me! Well our two slutty vice cops Holly and Didi (Linnea Quigley also returning) are not full fledged cops but they get demoted their first day on the job by botching the receptionist position. In order to save their jobs they need to bring down a psychotic villains that is hell bent on infecting the city's water system with an aphrodisiac if their demands aren't met. Can our two slutty cops put their differences aside? Will they be able to keep their clothes on? Will anyone other than empty-headed males care?

One thing that makes this film a little more watchable is it contains a little more female skin which is a happy diversion to the forced comedy, lame acting, artless directing and overall cheap production values. Director Sloane tried to liven up the film by introducing... get this... BimboCop. BimboCop is a "RoboCop" in the form of a woman body builder who might be replacing our sleazy and inept vice cops from their jobs. Not surprisingly this "novel" idea falls flat.

If by some chance you loved the first "Vice Academy" then by all means dive into this sequel. One-track minded men with a liking for dumb women and juvenile comedy will dig it. Good news.... "Vice Academy Part 2" was a huge hit on video so "Vice Academy Part 3" got made less than a year later. God help us!
