Broza spent his early childhood in
Israel with a few years in Madrid,
and was schooled in London. This
unique universal experience, affor-
ded him because of his father's job
changes and some time in a boarding

school, allowed him to be fluent in
three languages- Hebrew, Spanish,
and English.
While he was at a London boarding
school, Broza roomed with a
Lebanese Palestinian named Louis
Nahas, whose family had fled from
Israel during the 1948 Israeli War of
Independence. The two quickly
became friends, and Nahas taught
Broza how to play guitar. While the
two get along musically, politically it
is a different story. "He would not ac-
cept Israel," Broza said.
After a year and a half in the Israeli
army as a guard, Broza joined an Air
Force entertainment troupe to com-

'Academy' drop-outs

By Alan Markiewicz
C OPYCATS abound these days in
the movie business. Film
producers' fears have translated into
a rash of movies that all look the
same. Thus it is not surprising that the
cop-comedy, Police Academy III:
Back in Training, also gives one an
annoying feeling of deja vu; this film is
so literally stale that it manages to
strikingly resemble its first
predecessor, Police Academy, minus
several good jokes.
Concerning this movie's prequels,
Police Adacemy was a surprise hit
and a box-office smash back in the
summer of '84. It was the story of a
police academy which accepted any
recruits, no matter how bumbling or
off-the-wall they might have been.
Last year the less funny Police
Academy II further followed the
recruits' escapades as they took to
the streets as graduates of the
Police Academy III's plot takes
these bumblers back to where they
were most hilarious - the academy.
The governor declares that financial
troubles demand the closing of one of
the two state police academies. Which
academy is to remain open depends
on the performance of trainers and
trainees in the next few weeks. The
odd-ball academy's commandant
calls back the group of graduates to
insure that training runs smoothly. Of
course, the training turns out as
smooth as sandpaper.
The movie's producers, however.
are the ones who end up looking most
foolish. This latest Police Academy
lacks the character development that
the first film had. By the time the
academy's clowns are put to the test
in the film's climax, the audience

doesn't have an actor or actress with
whom to identify. Characters are
presented only as the butts of jokes or
as persons with queer talents, such as
karate or sound effect imitating. Not
even Steve Gutenberg as the trainer
Mahoney is given a role of any sub-
stance; while in the first movie one
sympathizes with him as a moral
leader of the recruits.
At times, the new trainees provide
laughs due to their oddity. One who
stands out most is Zed (Bobcat Gold-
thwait), a punk-rockish recruit whose
voice sounds like fingernails on
chalkboard and who gets high on tear
gas. The relationship between he and
Sweetchuck, his wimpy roommate at
the academy, is probably the funniest
aspect of the film.
Overall, though, the movie reminds
one of a Three Stooges rerun seen too
many times. The humor is all slap-
stick and lowbrow, which is fine, but
several of the jokes fall flat.
Moviegoers who have seen the first
two Police Academy's will find that
those films' gags are boringly reused
here (for example. the wife who
violently refuses to let her husband go
to the academy for training). Even
other movies are blatantly ripped-off,
such as Psycho and the James Bond
Someone who hasn't seen the
prequels might enjoy Police
Academy III if only because of its
zany situatons. But to pay $5 to see a
movie whose jokes you've already
seen isn't just foolishness, it's a

military service. His only demand
while in this troupe was that he sing
only in English and Spanish.
Shortly after his release from the
army, Broza met up with Yonatan
Geffen, a noted Israeli entertainer.
Geffen gave him a spot on his Gef-
fen's Little Talk Show, and Broza's
career took off.
While performing in Israeli clubs
and bars, Broza overcame his anti-
Hebrew sentiment ("I always have to
be against something") and recorded
