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.
An unemployed advertising executive 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.
The film was shot at Fort Jackson in South Carolina where real soldiers were used as extras. Released in USA June 3, 1994. Dolby Recording. Shot in Technicolor. Copyright Cinergi Pictures Entertainment, Inc., Cinergi Production N.V., and Buena Vista Pictures Distribution, Inc.
