In this comedy written by Jim Burnstein and directed by Penny Marshall, we meet Bill (Danny DeVito), a down-on-his-luck Detroit advertising executive. When he loses his job, Bill accepts the only other job he can find: teaching a class of boot-camp army recruits. They’ve already been labeled as a bunch of screw-ups by their training officer Sergeant Cass (Gregory Hines), and if Bill can’t teach them basic language proficiency, they’re all going to be kicked out of the military. But with the power of Shakespeare’s words, Bill is able to wake up their misunderstood minds. As this unlikely new teacher and his underdog class learn to face their fears and live up to their responsibilities, they inspire each other in ways they couldn’t have imagined.
