Steve Guttenberg turned down the lead role and gave a firm "no" to any other Police Academy sequels that might turn up (and they did). He turned them all down. Two decades later, he expressed in an interview that he regretted turning down the chance to star in the later sequels, and was among the main people trying to make another Police Academy movie.

(at around 1h 22 mins) When Proctor, while hanging from the helicopter, knocks Lieutenant Harris off the boat, we hear Proctor call out, "I did that. I'm sorry, Sir...", but his mouth stopped moving after, "I did that." See more »
On Network TV versions of the film, 2 scenes are added to fill time. One scene had Captain Harris and Lieutenant Proctor arriving at the hotel in Miami with a goat they had on their airplane. One scene occurs in the Police showcase area where people are trying out various items such as pepper spray, handcuffs, and bulletproof car shields; Tony is seen talking to a friend of his named Larry. He tries to get Larry to talk Commandant Lassard into giving him the camera with the stolen diamonds in it by telling him a story of how his dead wife had a camera just like the one Lassard's carrying. Feeling pity for him, Lassard is about to hand Larry the camera until Larry asks "is there anything I could do for you in return". Lassard says yes and has Larry take an official Police fingerprint identification test. Larry's discovered to be "a known felon" and he runs off without the camera. Tony and his goons walk casually away followed by Tony getting upset and hitting a police car shield with his hand and hurting it. See more »
"Police Academy 5" is a pure mess of a film. This time our heroes travel to Miami to honor their commandant. However, they end up chasing three dim-witted jewel thieves who are just as annoying as the primary cast. A film that should be avoided at all costs. Turkey (0 out of 5 stars).
