In the same league as Tommy Boy, this is one great comedy film which can stand the test of time! What makes it wonderful, is the bedtime story sequence, because my old youth group always loved me reanacting that one scene whenever we went on trips! Who cares about what the critics say!? Everyone should check this out!
I think, to truly appreciate a LARGE amount of the comedy in this, you needed to actually be in the military. Because if you've been in, EVERYONE knows someone like Major Payne, and like each of the kids as well.
Major Payne is no masterpeice but it is a good shift from alot of the more serious military films out there. it is pretty funny, slightly heart warming film with descent characters which take you on an adequete adventure. id reccomend it to people who arent so picky about the quality of their films.
Don't judge this film on the weak rating it has here. The film is a classic comedy and is far too underated. Give it a go. If you dont like this type of humor the film has to offer then fine but if you have a good sense of humour avoid it. Stick to watching boring weak predictable comedies like 2 broke girls.
