Goofs

When Sgt. Stern and his buddies capture Bones, Jack, Christine, and Fred while they are filtering water, they yank Jack and Christine down under the water. The two were in shallow enough water to stand up in about knee length water, but the Sgt. Stern and his posse yank Christine and Jack straight down, when they should have fallen backwards, forward, or to either side. If they were yanked down, they wouldn't go down because they were standing on some sort of surface. See more »

A great Pauly Shore movie
9 July 2002 | by (Tucson, AZ) – See all my reviews

While Son in Law is Pauly Shore's best movie, this is proves to be my personal favorite among his body of work. The premise of Shore being in the army is about hilarious as Leonardo DiCaprio demanding $25 million and getting it! Plenty of laughs either way. Anyway, this film was rather funny and sarcastic, satirizing the military and the macho attitudes which seem to be quite prevalent. While the cast (Shore, David Alan Grier, Andy Dick and Lori Petty) isn't going to impress you with their firm grasp of the thespian arts, it still was good stuff to watch. Also, Esai Morales and Art LaFleur both

provided solid supporting roles.
