This puber-comedy is a kind of mixture between 'Animal House' and 'Police Academy'. Four boys are sent, for different reasons, to a the Sheldon R. Wienberg military academy. The life of dicipline 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
After viewing an early screening of the film, actor Ron Leibman ("Major Vaughn Liceman") requested his name removed from the final film credits. See more »
This goof takes place during the scene in the game-room where Oliver, Ike, Rodney, and Hash have devised a plan to trick Chooch into thinking they're not going to try to get the pictures back. You can see the four boys at a pool table with Chooch at another pool table in the background. When the camera cuts to a close-up of Chooch, the balls on his pool table change positions. See more »
Just call me Ike.
Not now, man. Maybe after dinner.
No. My *name* is Hash. It's easier to say than "El Hashid Amir Junior".
It's easier to smoke too.

This is one of the greatest 80s movies!!! It sticks out like a "turd in a punchbowl"!! I can't believe Mad Magazine denounced it or whatever. And yet, they proudly put their name on a show with "Stuart", "I-speak-a-no-enlish Chinese lady" and "UPS guy on speed". What's up with that? And, I LOVE Ron Leibman-he's foxy!! Wonder why he had his name removed from the credits? It was his funniest role that I know of. Of course, he's not nearly as foxy as he was in Norma Rae. But, in my opinion, this movie is right up there with National Lampoon's Vacation. If you liked movies such as Porky's, Fast Times, Last American Virgin, or any of the other 80s teen-focused movies, you'll love this one!! Rent it and you'll see what I mean!!
