Goofs

As the Dirty Dozen fly into France in a disguised C-47, one team member asks why they did not parachute in. Major Reisman replies that they have no parachute training and would likely die trying to parachute in. 20 minutes later, after the team tries to mutiny in the French church, there is a scene in which the entire team parachutes into France.

Unfortunately for us, the "Dirty Dozen" made it out alive in this one...
14 November 1999 | by VENEZIADOGESee all my reviews

This movie had all the warning signs of a horribly cheesy comical re-make. Based upon "The Dirty Dozen," this almost unbearable 90 minutes of film made me almost rethink such masterpieces as Conspiracy Theory, The Blair Witch Project, and Batman and Robin. The movie itself was a mix between the worst Naked Gun humor, and a mildly serious Police Academy 7. Since it was also a "made-for-TV" movie, and since it was also a "made-for-TV" movie comedy, it is among the very cheesiest of the cheesy. So be warned, and watch out for Sonny Landham who played Billy in Predator.Particular attention should be payed to the German scene, which was one of the cheesy-funny scenes in the movie. But as a rule, avoid most movies with "The Next Mission" in the title, or comedies made for TV.

Hopefully this was the Dirty Dozen's last mission, or rather the "Baker's Dozen's" last mission!
