Synopsis

Danny De Vito stars as divorced, out-of-work ad executive Bill Drago who is offered a six-week placement in the army teaching basic English comphrehension to eight no-hopers at a local military base. Drago arrives and finds he has to sleep next to the training ground where the soldiers begin exercises at 4am. Furthermore his students are an unruly bunch and Drago has to employ an array of unusual teaching methods - including using Shakespeare to teach them literacy. Needless to say this liberal approach does not please the disciplinarian Sergeant-Major.
