In the scene where the Colonel is driving his car across the bridge on his way to his destination; that is the bridge that connects Savanna, Illinois with Sabula, Iowa. He is actually driving the opposite direction (West) needed to get the the filming location (East). See more »

Goofs

When he is in his screen mom's car, actor Shane Conrad's hair is parted on his left and the left side of his shirt buttons over the right side (at around 4 mins), but as he is watches her drive off (from 15:10 to 15:25), the frames are flipped with his hair parted on his right and the right side of his shirt buttoned over the left side. Later, both the part in his hair and the buttoning of his shirt switch back (at around 39 mins). See more »

Same characters, different names
11 June 2004 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

I liked Conrad-and-West as Gregory Boyington-and-Sergeant Andy Micklin in 'Black Sheep'...er, I mean as Duke Ramsey-and-Sergeant O'Brien in 'The Duke'...er, I mean as Coach Brandon-and-Superintendent Turner in 'Coach Of The year'...er, I mean as Colonel Knox-and-Gunnery Sergeant Tuttle in 'Hard Knox'. Two actors with very well-developed 'signature characters' [of which the best-known example is Burt Reynolds playing a hard-driving good IL' boy] playing those characters yet again in yet another enjoyable bit of pulp-fluff. It's certainly not classic cinema, it's not Citizen Kane, it won't do the job when I'm in the mood for Steinbeck, but the 'signature character buddies' formula works for these guys...it's one of the better feel-good good-vibes flicks I've yet seen.
