...Wayans is one of the most talented comic actors around....As Major Payne he is plenty outrageous...

Rating: 1.5/5 -- Let's hear it for truth in advertising!

Rating: 3/4 -- Although the plot of the movie is a familiar formula, the dialogue and performance are not; it's a smart, funny job of poking fun at all those movies where sadistic drill instructors terrorized their green recruits. Full Review

...It's an ideal entertainment for youthful audiences that allows Damon Wayans to be at his best in a dream part...
Los Angeles Times
Mar 24, 1995
Rating: 2/5 -- A relentlessly misguided military mishap starring Wayans as a uniformed motormouth with an edgy attitude. Maybe Wayans schtick is a major pain to endure after all?

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.
