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
Rodney waits until his bunkmates are asleep, then runs off to tell Liceman about their plans. On his way out, he falls off the porch steps into the bushes, and his hat flies off. He gets up, and continues on his way, leaving his hat in the bushes. In the next scene, he has his hat back. See more »

I think this movie is really funny. Especially the part where all the cadets sit around in the dorm making fun of Major Vaughn. It's so funny because its true! I know - I went to a military school just like the Sheldon R. Wienberg Military Academy. This is the best work that Ralph Machio has done since Eight is Enough. Everyone should rent "Up the Academy" today!
