Roy and Bo leave their small town the weekend after graduation for a short road trip to LA. Soon, they find themselves lashing out and leaving a trail of bodies behind them. The violence escalates throughout.
In the latter half of the film Martin Sheen's character McKinney says to Charlie Sheen's Bean that he has a son "about your age." Martin Sheen is, of course, Charlie Sheen's father in real life. See more »
When MSGT McKinney turns over the prisoners to PVT Stokes to march to the mess hall, PVT Stokes calls, "Column right..." They were standing in two ranks and could not do a column right from that formation. They needed to do a "right face," first, then two column right maneuvers to head for the gate. Since they would be parallel to the gate, another column right would be called. Stokes, also, did a column right without announcing it outside the gate. See more »
[Bean tries to isolate himself from the 'Soul Patrol']
Listen up, Bean. If you want to be over here by yourself, that's your business. But let me tell you something. We are *all* in this together! That means you do *not* operate entirely on your own in here. Nobody does. You will pull your weight, or we will make you wish you had. See, your being white don't mean *shit* in here. 'Cause as far as that old bastard out there is concerned, we're all *niggers* in here. You dig it!

In the Sweet Bye and Bye

I seldom comment on a movie, but I so strongly disagreed with a prior comment on this movie, I felt I had to add two cents. I found this entrant far from boring. I have watched it four or five times, each time finding a new focus. The movie's idea is interesting, the conflict between the Sheens believable and well played, and the supporting cast excellent. Laurence Fishburne and James Marshall in particular are pleasures to watch. As the second of Sheen's two stints as a director I was impressed. Even the basic set works for me. And the music is so good that I continue to look from time to time to see if an actual CD is available. I believe that if you get your hands on this movie you won't be disappointed.
