An experimental, ludicrous, plotless, absurd, surreal comedy. It is seemingly intentionally impossible to understand. It leaps from scene to scene, world to world, with recurring names and ... See full summary »

This puber-comedy is a kind of mixture between "Animal House" and "Police Academy". Four boys are sent, for different reasons, to the Sheldon R. Wienberg Military Academy. The life of discipline asks a lot of the four geeks. Of course these boys know how to make a party out of the hard times. Will they be "real men" after one year?Written by

When the soccer game is being announced, you can see Commandant Causeway is in the stands sitting next to his wife. Causeway reaches over and wraps his arm around Bliss. Then it cuts to a close-up of him, and you can clearly see Bliss is no longer next to him and that seat is empty. His wife also has a gas mask up to her face. Then it cuts back to Keck who is announcing Sisson's performance, and the gas mask is not on Causeway's wife's face, but instead resting on her lap. Then the camera goes to another close-up of Causeway who is asleep on Bliss's shoulder while his wife is itching her nose. But in the immediate next shot, she is setting the gas mask beside her.

The only thing I remember about this movie are two things: first, as a twelve year old, even I thought it stunk. Second, it was so bad that when Mad magazine did a parody of it, they quit after the first page, and wrote a disclaimer at the bottom of the page saying that they had completely disavowed it.
If you want to see great sophomoric comedies of this period, try Animal House. It's so stupid and vulgar it lowers itself to high art. Another good selection would be Caddyshack, the classic with the late Rodney Dangerfield and Bill Murray before he became annoyingly charming, with great lines like greens keeper Carl Spackler's "Correct me if I'm wrong Sandy, but if I kill all the golfers they'll lock me up and throw away the key."
