Did You Know?
as Link, his character from Encino Man, during the dinner scene in the tent with the Special forces guys.
You can tell that Christine's m16a3 rifle is unloaded after she shoots a very short automatic burst at the Libyans, she would still have some ammunition left in the magazine.
Thank you, sir. But I could not have done it without the help and inspiration of my brother, the poolman.
Is Pauley Shore Dead?
Whatever happened to Pauley Shore? I guess he's still around but you
didn't hear much from him after this movie, which was a decent success.
It was a surprisingly-good lightweight comedy with a bunch of likable
goofs and weirdos from Glendale, California, and their adventures after
they join the Army Reserves.
The language was pretty tame in here but there were a lot of sexual
innuendos, too many for a PG rating but not surprising in a modern-day
comedy. That comedy overall is good with some laugh-out-loud scenes.
Also, as with many films, the ending gets carried away. It was really
dumb, but for most of this movie it was entertaining enough to
certainly recommend if you need a laugh.
