Rating: 2/5 -- A limp and nearly invisble female flip on the "Police Academy" conceit. I've seen ferns with more personality.
Description by OLDIES.com:
Ex-Marine Ellie and shy bookworm Janis are fledgling female Feds who'd make Eliot Ness proud. More importantly, they'll make you laugh. Starring as these plucky FBI recruits are gangbuster comediennes Rebecca de Mornay and Mary Gross. "Brawny" Ellie and "brainy" Janis go together like ham and eggs, and their lives will be hilariously scrambled during their hilarious, hectic training. Janis must learn physicality and intimidation techniques, while Ellie needs a guiding hand to help get through the intricacies of constitutional law. So in true buddy fashion, they'll help each other prepare for the academy's final exam: a "simulated crime exercise" that chauvinistic lunkheads think will separate the men from the girls.
Two women - an ex-marine and a very brainy but mousy bookworm - enter the FBI academy for 16 weeks of agent training. Naturally, they're more excited about carrying guns than about the men they encounter, most of whom are sexist farm animals.
A pair of female FBI trainees find themselves in the midst of comic capers as they struggle to prove themselves worthy of the job -- and show up their sexist male colleagues.
