Police Academy: The Complete Collection <b>DVD</b> ~ Steve Guttenberg
The Police Acedemy movies are, sometimes, the greatest films to put in your DVD player on a lazy Sunday afternoon for a "guilty pleasure-eighties flashback", escape from our millenium age high pressure current lifestyle. The films from the eighties are fun, non-sensical, and simply comforting compared to today's highly tense, bad taste comedies.
The first Police Acedemy was the only one of the 7 which was rated R. The rest were PG-13. The first one was great because it was fresh and new. I agree with many of the positive reviews Amazon's readers and reviewers said about it. Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment, was improved and remained fresh because it added Tim… Read more

Inspiration - CD W/Bonus DVD - ~ William Hung
God Help America!! I mean, it all makes now. First we have someone named Simon who thinks he's the authority on "what is talent", and then, we get this guy, William Hung, as he succeeds as a pop icon as a result of meeting and performing for Simon on American Idol. I swear, it continues to be embarrassing to be an american. I'll continue to stay "proudly unhipp", thank you. (...) It's just that the world is watching us americans, and we continue to show the world our weaknesses that we stand proud of, our tastlessness of morality, and our arrogance to think that we represent a better way of life for the world to admire.
Making a star out of this William Hung just shows how… Read more
