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 Corps with some hope. But when Payne is recalled to fight in Bosnia, will he leave the Corps that has just started to believe in him, or will he find out that killin' ain't much of a livin'? Written by

He's looking for a few good men... or a few guys old enough to shave.
Did You Know?
After the opening firefight and surrender of the drug cartel, Major Payne's HUMVEE can be seen driving past a sign that reads: Camp Pendleton Virginia. The only Camp Pendleton in Virginia is an army installation that is mainly used as a recreational facility with cabin rentals and the like. MCB Camp Pendleton (which is where Payne would be more likely to report) is actually in southern California. See more
At the end of the movie, the recruit with a "Blind Seeing Eye Dog" German Shepherd is shown. This dog is just a guide dog, because "Seeing Eye" is a brand name, and would appear on the harness. See more

Where are you going?
To the games. You guys better get ready - we gotta be there in an hour.
Alex... we don't have a chance without Payne.
Listen - Payne or no *Payne,* I'm gonna go out there and get that *stupid* trophy. We busted our asses off out there! Now, I didn't go through all that to come out empty handed.
