Get a double dose of army amusement with these two military-themed comedies.
MAJOR PAYNE: Damon Wayans plays a near-maniacal army major assigned to whip a detail of dysfunctional children into shape to win a war-games competition, making for some hilarious moments of truly inspired lunacy. Remake of the 1955 movie THE PRIVATE WAR OF MAJOR BENSON starring Charlton Heston.
SGT. BILKO: Steve Martin steps into Phil Silvers's shoes as the smooth-talking Sgt. Bilko who has mastered the Army's catch-22's to his own benefit, turning bureaucratic obstacles into golden opportunities. That is, until his nemesis, Major Thorn, arrives to scrutinize Bilko's base, threatening to upset the delicate balance of casinos, under-the-table businesses, and other illicit operations Bilko has set in motion.
