Four boys are sent, for different reasons, to a 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.
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
This goof takes place during the scene in the game-room where Oliver, Ike, Rodney, and Hash have devised a plan to trick Chooch into thinking they're not going to try to get the pictures back. You can see the four boys at a pool table with Chooch at another pool table in the background. When the camera cuts to a close-up of Chooch, the balls on his pool table change positions. See more »
Hello Colonel. I was just...
I know what you were doing.
Did you like what you saw MacArthur?
Uh no. I mean yes. I mean.
It's okay MacArthur. Meet me in my room in 5 minutes.

The end credits show the opening credits sequence in reverse (the toy soldiers are falling up instead of down). See more »
The film was originally presented by Mad Magazine and included scenes featuring a live-action version of Mad's character Alfred E. Neuman. Mad publisher William M. Gaines was however so disappointed with the movie that he later paid $30,000 to Warner Home Video to have them remove all the scenes featuring Neuman and all references to the magazine from the video release of the film. Reportedly, Warner later refunded the money after it was discovered that copies of the video distributed outside the USA didn't include the required cuts. See more »
Okay, go back almost 40 years and I would say this was hilarious, but we all mature into adulthood, and this movie sunk into the abyss yet not totally wrecked.
We meet The Karate Kid (Ralph Macchio) for the first time here, but the rest of the cast...except Ron Leibman, Stacey Nelkin, Tom Poston, and Ian Wolfe...have all vanished from existence, or Planet Hollywood. So that must have been the reason why the movie is so unfunny today. Teenage sexual angst just doesn't turn me on, slightly worth a ha! anymore. Now I know too why Leibman excised his name from the credits...he "stood out like a turd in a punchbowl"! - do you blame him?.
Again, rack this as one of the funny ones that went unfunny over age and time.
