The two decide to join the Army as part of the water purification team and eventually find themselves on the front lines in the conflict between the northern African countries of Chad and Libya. 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

The video game Bones is playing in the opening sequence is "Return Fire" for the 3DO. See more »

Goofs

When Bones fires the AT4 near the end of the movie, what comes out is a rocket, exhibited by the smoke trail behind the projectile. The AT4 is a recoilless smoothbore launcher. All propulsion is provided by the charge in the tube, similar to how a normal firearm works. There is no rocket motor on the projectile, and hence no smoke trail. See more »

Excellent movie, as good as Bio Dome.
19 April 2005 | by (Glendale, AZ) – See all my reviews

I loved the movie for a lot of reasons. Pauly Shore and David Alan Grier, for example.

My ONE small gripe; the fighter jets used in the movie. At first, it seemed as if the planes were Tornado Marines, single-tail, single-engine fighters. In other scenes, if you're into military aircraft, or have seen Top Gun, you can clearly see that they are F-14 Tomcats, dual-tail (or split-fin, as Luke Air Force Base pilots refer to them), dual-engine fighters. I'm guessing that since the Tornado and the Tomcat share a lot of similarities (swing-wings, similar forward fuselages, and near-cockpit intake vents), that only a person, or persons, familiar with aircraft would be able to tell the difference.

Otherwise, I rank In The Army Now with Stripes, Sgt. Bilko, McHale's Navy, Down Periscope, Hot Shots Pts 1 and 2, and Major Payne, all funny military comedies.
