Damon Wayans stars as an ex-marine with some very obvious and severe mental issues who is tasked to look after a bunch of kids, hopefully without killing them in the process. A disturbing premise that is trite and churns out a few laughs. To date this is the only other thing I remember seeing Karyn 'Hillary Banks' Parsons in.

This film is pretty funny. Somethin different from Damon Wayans. The JROTC element reminds me of Child's Play 3, but without the horror and killer doll. LOL.

"There's a monster in my closet"

Major Benson Payne is a hardcore Marine mercenary who is given a new assignment, to handle a military school with little kids. The kids aren't exactly military material. They're skinny, fat, undisciplined, and over sensitive. It’s Major Payne's job to teach these little losers’ his world of discipline.

However his brand of training immediately sets the boys against him and they resort to getting rid of him using any means possible which includes spiking his food with laxatives, a gassy gag which backfires and hiring a tough motorcycle guy to come take care of Payne, but that doesn’t work either so the Major puts each of the boys into 8 weeks of living hell!

Along the way we meet the attractive teacher/counselor Emily Walburne, who falls for Major Payne even though he treats the kid...

"Major Benson Winifred Payne" (Damon Wayans) is a United States Marine who has been trained to be a killing machine. However, when he fails to gain in rank a second time he is given his discharge orders. He then tries to adjust to civilian life, without success.

His former commanding officer then gets "Payne" a job as commanding officer of a Virginia prep school's Junior ROTC program where he is in charge of some young misfits. He also has to butt heads with a beautiful prep school counselor (Karyn Parsons), whom he instantly falls for.

His mission: to shape these misfits into a team for the Virginia JROTC Military Games. His personal mission: Change his ways to get the counselor, "Emily", to fall for him.

I've seen this story before, and done better with more laughs. There ar...
