Entertainment Reviews:

Variety - 03/20/1995
"...It certainly has spit and polish and runs through its drill with admirable precision..."
New York Times - 03/24/1995
"...Mr. Wayans gives the dark cartoonish comedy an irreverent edge..."
Los Angeles Times - 03/24/1995
"...It's an ideal entertainment for youthful audiences that allows Damon Wayans to be at his best in a dream part..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 03/24/1995
"...Wayans is one of the most talented comic actors around....As Major Payne he is plenty outrageous..."

Product Description:

Wayans plays a near-maniacal Army Major assigned to whip a detail of dysfunctional children into shape to win a war games competition, making for some hilarious moments of truly inspired lunacy. Remake of the 1955 movie THE PRIVATE WAR OF MAJOR BENSON starring Charlton Heston.

Plot Synopsis:

Major Benson Payne experiences severe culture shock when he leaves the Marines; a couple of decades in uniform have left him unprepared for civilian life. Through the help of a friend, he gets a position leading a ROTC outfit at a prep school, but his young recruits are thoroughly unprepared for his gruff and acerbic rigidity. The major has a change of heart -- and loosens up considerably -- when he meets a winsome and intelligent doctor who provides just the romantic touch he needs.
