The two men, along with a few companions, have it upon themselves to save the day in combat, something they know little about. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Most of the basic training and war scenes were shot at Fort Sill in Lawton, Oklahoma. A sign displaying the name "Fort Sill" is clearly visible in one scene. See more »

Goofs

When the group calls for the second airstrike, their sergeant states that a group of F-111s is headed their way. However, when the aircraft arrive, it is a group of combat helicopters, not F-111 fighter jets. See more »

Quotes

1st Sgt. Brandon T. Williams: I am First Sergeant Brandon T. Williams. It is my intention to run this company like a clock. If one gear slips in my clock, my clock'll tell the wrong time. If one spring is loose in my clock, my clock'll tell the wrong time. First Sergeant Williams likes his clock to tell the right time. Do you understand me?
Other Troops: Yes, First Sergeant!
Jack: What did he just say?
Bones: I don't know, something about his clock being broken.

Shore in the Sand
20 December 2014 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Fired from his job and in a Glendale, California electronics store, slacker clerk Pauly Shore (as Bones Conway) is broke and desperate. His similarly long-haired side-kick Andy Dick (as Jack Kaufman) is also canned. They think the US Amy Reserves is going to be easy, but Mr. Shore and Mr. Dick have to cut their long hair and undergo rigorous basic training with loud-mouthed drill sergeant Lynn Whitfield. They thought they were going to work in a cushy water purification unit, but Shore and Dick are in for a surprise. Buffed in his green briefs, Shore is about to have sex when the call to war arrives. Shore and Dick try to get out by pretending they're gay, but they are unable to kiss...

And so, it's off to war they go...

Accompanying the pair are two supporting soldiers, gun-ho female Lori Petty (as Christine Jones) and reluctantly funny David Alan Grier (as Fred Ostroff). Shore clashes with handsome Esai Morales and sees some unexpected action in Africa. Director Daniel Petrie Jr. and the crew seem to be just filling time during a long, unfunny dessert sequence. However, we do get to see Shore kiss Dick. If you remember, Shore could not kiss Dick earlier, so he must have been serious about digging his derriere. More seriously, Shore prefers Ms. Petty. Her break-out scene is a highlight. Funniest man in the army is Mr. Grier. He has good timing and delivery. And, the camel performs admirably.

*** In the Army Now (8/12/94) Daniel Petrie Jr. ~ Pauly Shore, Andy Dick, Lori Petty, David Alan Grier
