Major Benson Winifred Payne is being discharged from the Marines. Payne is a killin' machine, but the wars of the world are no longer fought on the battlefield. A career Marine, he has no idea what to do as a civilian, so his commander finds him a job - commanding officer of a local school's JROTC program, a bunch or ragtag losers with no hope. Using such teaching tools as live grenades and real bullets, Payne starts to instill the corp with some hope. But when Payne is recalled to fight in Bosnia, will he leave the corp who has just started the believe in him, or will he find out that killin' ain't much of a livin'? Written by

' Payne character was dancing to "Pop that Coochie" by 2 Live Crew
in the nightclub scene. Interestingly enough Wayans was having a real life feud with 2 Live Crew at the time due to a joke he told about the group during his comedy special, _Damon Wayans: The Last Stand (1990)_, when he called them "Gangstas with microphones". This prompted 2 Live Crew front man Luther Campbell
to cut a response rant on Wayans and his show In Living Color
(1990) on a track called "I Ain't Bullshittin' III", which coincidentally appears on the 'Sports Weekend' album. The same album that also features "Pop that Coochie". See more
