The men who perpetrated the deed are two crooked cops who are on the take from Sonny--and who may blow Vinnie's cover just as he is about to be inducted as a full member of the Steelgrave operation. It is up to Vinnie's OCB contact Frank (Jonathan Banks) to keep the situation from getting beyond control. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Wiseguy: Prodigal Son When his mother Carlotta (Elsa Raven) is brutally mugged, Vinnie (Ken Wahl) decides to risk blowing his cover by telling her that he isn't a crook, but instead an undercover agent. Things take a sinister turn when Vinnie discovers that the man who beat up his mom has ties with Vinnie's crime-kingpin "pal" Sonny Steelgrave (Ray Sharkey). Meanwhile, our hero's OCB contacts Frank (Jonathan Banks) and Lifeguard (Jim Byrnes) struggle mightily to prevent Vinnie from literally outliving his usefulness. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Wiseguy: The Marriage of Heaven and Hell Mobster Sonny Steelgrave (Ray Sharkey) schemes to increase his power by marrying the daughter of the Baglia crime family. At the same time, Sonny's "best friend" Vinnie (Ken Wahl)--actually a federal agent--is order to "hit" Sonny on the day of the wedding by Pat "The Cat" Patrice (Joe Dellasandro). But when the smoke clears, someone other than Sonny is lying dead--and Vinnie's OCB contract Frank (Jonathan Banks) is on the verge of closing down the Steelgrave operation once and for all. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Wiseguy: Pilot, Part 1 Released from Newark State Penitentiary after an 18-month stretch, Vinnie Terranova (Ken Wahl) apparently wants nothing more out of life than to plunge back into the criminal pool. Getting a job as a busboy at a restaurant frequented by the Steelgrave crime family, Vinnie connives to get on the good side of Sonny Steelgrave (Ray Sharkey), who takes such a liking to the pugnacious ex-con that he hires Vinnie as his personal driver. What Sonny doesn't know is that Vinnie is an undercover agent, working for the anti-crime organization OCB--and that his arrest and release was all part of a master plan to topple the Steelgrave empire. Originally telecast as a single two-hour TV movie, the pilot episode of Wiseguy has since been re-edited as two one-hour episodes for syndicaiton. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Wiseguy: New Blood Undercover agent Vinnie (Ken Wahl) has managed to infiltrate the Steelgrave crime family and has been put in charge of the waterfront "action" formerly handled by Grecco, discredited lieutenant of Sonny Steelgrave (Ray Sharkey). Meanwhile, an ambitious new DA (Vic Polizos) has vowed to clean up the Steelgrave mob, specifically targetting Vinnie and other second-echelon functionaries. Will the "moles" placed in Sonny's organization inadvertently blow Vinnie's cover--and what can he do about it short of killing the people on his "own side"? ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Wiseguy: The Birthday Surprise Vinnie's cousin Danny is killed by Kiki Vanno (Nestor Serrano, a g

    Includes - Police Academy 5: Assignment Miami Beach (1988), MPAA Rating: PG Police Academy 6: City Under Siege (1989), MPAA Rating: PG National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1 (1993), MPAA Rating: PG-13 Police Academy: Mission to Moscow (1994), MPAA Rating: PG Police Academy 5: Assignment Miami Beach America's most inept law enforcement team mixes business with pleasure as they head to sunny Florida in this comedy. The aging and often-confused head of the Police Academy, Commandant Lassard (George Gaynes), has reached mandatory retirement age, much to the pleasure of the devious Capt. Harris (G.W. Bailey), who is still scheming to take over his job. Lassard, Harris, and a handful of the Academy's "distinguished" graduates (including Bubba Smith, Michael Winslow, Leslie Easterbrook, and Marion Ramsey) travel to Miami Beach for a special ceremony to commemorate Lassard's years of service as he leaves the force; however, a luggage mix-up puts the clumsy cops in the middle of a massive illegal arms deal. Police Academy 5: Assignment Miami Beach was the first film in the long-running series that did not star Steve Guttenberg (Bob Goldthwait also left the franchise at this point), but most of the other regulars bravely soldiered on without him. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide Police Academy 6: City Under Siege Who do you send after a gang of stump-dumb crooks? Who else but the most intellectually-challenged police force in America, in the sixth installment of the Police Academy series. The Wilson Heights Gang, three thieves whose success as criminals is in inverse proportion to their outwardly-displayed intelligence and criminal talent, are managing to terrorize the city in spite of themselves. The increasingly feeble Commandant Lassard (George Gaynes) and his much-put-upon second-in-command Capt. Harris (G.W. Bailey) are instructed to bring the crooks to justice; of course, with the Police Academy regulars as their task force, that's much easier said than done. Bubba Smith, Michael Winslow, Leslie Easterbrook, Marion Ramsey, and Bruce Mahler are on hand once again as the comical cops; Peter Bonerz, a former regular on The Bob Newhart Show, stepped in as director. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1 The Lethal Weapon series and the rest of the buddy-cop genre receives the parody treatment in this low-brow comedy. Emilio Estevez stars as Jack Colt, the Mel Gibson-like loose cannon, while Samuel L. Jackson assumes the Danny Glover role as Wes Luger, his exasperated partner. Together, Colt and Luger investigate the murder of Luger's former partner (Whoopi Goldberg) and discover a criminal conspiracy led by the nefarious General Mortars (William Shatner). Hoping to mimic the success of the Naked Gun films, director Gene Quintano (of Police Academy 4 fame) loaded the film with broad visual gags, deadpan slapstick, and gratuitous parodies of The Silence of the Lambs, Basic Instinct, and other movies. The attempt to mimic successful parodies proved ineffective, however, as critics and viewers alike found the parody stale and the juvenile humor dreary. ~ Judd Blaise, All Movie Guide Police Academy: Mission to Moscow In a major stumbling block toward better international relations, America's most laughable police officers are sent to Russia to fight crime in this comedy. In Moscow, master criminal Konali (Ron Perlman) has marketed a new computer game that has an unusual hidden feature -- it allows him to bring down any security system controlled by a PC on which the game has been played, with a string of major robberies as the result. Russian Police Commandant Rakov (Christopher Lee) is at his wit's end about how to deal with the crisis, so he asks for help from the U.S. law enforcement community. However, Rakov's American allies turn out to be Lassard (George Gaynes), Harris (G.W. Bailey), and the rest of the crew from the Police Academy (among them Michael Winslow, David Graf, and Leslie Easterbrook). Clair
