A disparate group of Metro Los Angeles police officers - the rank and file - bond over their commonality of being brothers in blue despite their differences. The other thing they all seem to need is a venue to blow off some steam together, what they collectively call "choir practice": after hours piss ups, usually in public, where they again can relieve the pressures of the work day. Despite their brotherhood, not all their lives they feel they can share with each other in the overwhelming sense of what it means to be a real man in this environment. A few weeks in their lives and a few choir practices later are shown, when three of the younger officers, Baxter, Lyles and Bloomguard - the latter two who served together in Vietnam - are temporarily assigned to night duty in Vice under the leadership of Sgt. Scuzzi, who they always assumed was the janitor; as young Proust tries to mitigate the negative effects of his unabashedly blowhard, redneck and bigoted partner, Roscoe out on the ...Written by
Author Joseph Wambaugh disowned, disavowed, and de-credited himself from this adaptation of his book "The Choirboys". Wambaugh was so incensed with this adaptation of his book, considering it to be such a poor adaption, that he sued the production, and was successful in having his name removed from the film's credits.

I had the misfortune of seeing this "movie" a few nights ago.
Now I've seen a lot of films that have been tagged as turkeys in one way or another but despite all the negativity surrounding them they were still watchable in some way.
The same cannot be said of "The Choirboys".
Because it has no plot its similar to watching a home video of a group of people, none of whom you know or care about, simply goofing around.
However here its worse as you have usually super actors such as James Woods making utter idiots of themselves. None of their supposed "comedic" moments are funny but instead leave you with a sense of revulsion.
The film fails on so many levels and is quite frankly an abomination.
