[Bean tries to isolate himself from the 'Soul Patrol']
Listen up, Bean. If you want to be over here by yourself, that's your business. But let me tell you something. We are *all* in this together! That means you do *not* operate entirely on your own in here. Nobody does. You will pull your weight, or we will make you wish you had. See, your being white don't mean *shit* in here. 'Cause as far as that old bastard out there is concerned, we're all *niggers* in here. You dig it!

Plot summary: Charlie Sheen is thrown into an army stockade with a whole gang of brothers, and they need to learn to work together to get through it. Translation: He's the only white guy in the bunch, and if his honky azz messes up, he won't be rollin'.
This underground (hardly any theater time) military movie turns out to be quite a winner. Charlie Sheen is superb, Laurence Fishburne does a great job, and Martin Sheen pulls off a great directorial debut to the big screen (along with a nice acting performance). I was in the army for many years and I could totally relate sometimes how it was to be the white guy trying to fit in. It's a tough situation to capture in film and make work (it's been attempted hundreds of times), but Martin does a very nice job. The 'Chain Gang' song they sing through the movie was so good that I recorded it off the the movie to MP3. My squad once attempted to perform that cadence dance. It was very amusing. 'Gig for Bean' is a quote I used to say all the time. Every once in awhile someone would get it and it would be a classic moment. 3 out of 4 paws on this one. (More reviews at www,warcat,com)
