With one minor omission, Private Benitez recites the St. Crispin's speech from Henry V perfectly. The actual speech goes "For he today that sheds his blood with me, shall be my brother, be he ne'er so vile. This day shall gentle his condition. And gentlemen in England...", whereas Private Benitez recites it as "shall be my brother. And gentlemen in England..." See more »
When Hobbs is being handcuffed we see one arm being cuffed. A close-up shows the same arm being cuffed again, then wide shot shows both cuffed. See more »
A little cheesy, but i will never get tired of it.
The older I get the more I realize how this movie is a little cheesy, But if you really like a feel good movie you can't go wrong with this one. Danny Devito did a wonderful job playing a teacher in the army.(a job he didn't ask for and is not looking forward to)He is brought in to teach these kids that everyone thinks are stupid. Every one of the characters left an impression in my mind. They all did a wonderful job at playing their roles.Each one of the student's are different and everyone knows someone in real life like each one of them. It is a little like dead poet's society but with more comedy and a more "happy good feeling" I am always in a GREAT mood at the end of this movie!
