Entertainment Reviews:

Variety - 05/30/1994
"...RENAISSANCE MAN generates its share of laughs, and the filmmakers have done a terrific job of casting the eight recruits with fresh faces who bring the film an inordinate amount of energy..."
Los Angeles Times - 06/03/1994
"...DeVito is remarkably good in the role....It seems to have touched something genuine in him....The result is his best screen work since Barry Levinson's TIN MEN..."

Product Description:

An unemployed advertising executive (Danny DeVito) takes a job teaching an underachieving class of Army recruits in this fish-out-of-water story. His radical tactics, though frowned on by the Army, help the students learn, and in turn the kids teach him a thing or two.

Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:

Renaissance Man
Expect big, big laughs when funnyman Danny DeVito (TWINS, RUTHLESS PEOPLE) joins forces with talened director Penny Marshall (A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN, BIG) to deliver a lively five-star comedy you're going to love! DeVito plays a down-on-his-luck businessman who desperately takes the only job offered -- a teaching position in the U.S. Army. His mission: keep a ragtag bunch of underachieving misfits from flunking out of basic training! Be on alert for laughter as this unlikely new teacher and his underdog class unexpectedly inspire one another to be all that they can be!

Plot Synopsis:

Bill Rago, an unemployed advertising exec, accepts a job teaching English to a group of crude, intelligence-free Army privates. Rago eventually converts them (using Shakespeare), and has a positive effect on their personal lives in the process.
