Four boys are sent, for different reasons, to a Military Academy. The life of discipline asks a lot of the four geeks. Of course these boys know how to make a party out of the hard times. Will they be "real men" after one year.
A multimillionaire, whose son and daughter are gay, leaves a will with one clause: His children will inherit his money only if at least one of them produces him a grandchild within a year of his death.

This puber-comedy is a kind of mixture between "Animal House" and "Police Academy". Four boys are sent, for different reasons, to the Sheldon R. Wienberg Military Academy. The life of discipline asks a lot of the four geeks. Of course these boys know how to make a party out of the hard times. Will they be "real men" after one year?Written by
During the soccer game when Liceman has the ball, he shoves a kid - with a number "1" on his jersey - onto the ground. In the next shot, Sisson is helping the kid up but instead his jersey now has a "3" on it. See more »

I beg your pardon?
It's particularly nasty weather.

The film was originally presented by Mad Magazine and included scenes featuring a live-action version of Mad's character Alfred E. Neuman. Mad publisher William M. Gaines was however so disappointed with the movie that he later paid $30,000 to Warner Home Video to have them remove all the scenes featuring Neuman and all references to the magazine from the video release of the film. Reportedly, Warner later refunded the money after it was discovered that copies of the video distributed outside the USA didn't include the required cuts. See more »
A screwball, sophomoric, made-on-a-shoestring fluff-of-a-cheapo by the mentally 'very questionable' folks over at Mad Magazine, this hum-dinger of a bomb was Ralph 'Karate Kid' Macchios' feature film debut.
As lame, dunced-up and pointy-headed as this flick is, on a slow night [reeeeeeally slow!], I can't seem to stop myself from pulling this one off the shelf, now and again and vegging out in front of it with a bag of chips, a cold drink and a box of rotten fruit for throwing!
Check out Ralphs 'New Yawk by-way-of-corner store' drawl; check out the smoldering munitions insctrutor [by way of lovely Barbara Bach] who knows her way around a fully loaded 'weapon'! Check out the young misanthrope rejects from a geek festival who become Ralphs cohorts in misadventure in this dust bin disaster and most of all...most of all, sit up straight for the over starched commandant when he's on screen or you may get a stiff "DO IT AGAINNNNNN!" reproach from him! He's a very disturbed egg that one! And in need a a very BIG pill!.
Dumb as this movie is, it's one of those i keep coming back to because it's lovable, way [WAY!] off the quirk-meter and just a friggin' hoot!
