    I had hoped to nominate some of the Police Academy sequels but never got to them. They didn't introduce Bobcat Goldthwait's character until the 2nd one and he doesn't actually become part of the police force until the 3rd one. He was one of the best parts of the franchise.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    Well it did get matched against a weak sequel and a Police Academy movie...

    Don't get me wrong, I loved to watch Police Academy back in the day but "greatest movie" material it isn't.

    Rocky III deserved to advance more than IV did. Oh these crazy brackets.
