After Michael Malone is escorted into the concert at that end of the movie he sneaks away as the soldiers are distracted by the fireworks. On the floor you can see they are "trampling" an American flag. This is part of the extended scene which can be found in the DVD's bonus features. See more »

I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. Though Mr. Zucker's brand of crude humor is typically not my cup of tea, the pleasure I took from watching so many of Hollywood's "sacred cows" being torpedoed on screen made me giddy as a schoolgirl.
The performances were well done, especially Kelsey Grammar as General Patton. Everyone involved in this project should be commended for having the stones to make a film so contrary to the prevailing culture in Hollywood.
This picture said so many things that needed to be said, yet did it through laughter, instead of venom-spewing. Well done.
