The 'Police Academy' movies

The Good: The first couple are stereotypical '80s romps -- a group of underdogs set out to prove themselves, led by a charming and cheeky cute guy (Steve Guttenberg). The Bad: As with many funny caper movies, the joke is stretched out over several sequels without adding anything new (and usually losing key players in the process). Thus was the case with the franchise heading for Miami Beach. And Moscow.The Ugly: Did you know there's an eighth installment currently being put into production? Yikes.
