    Major Payne has hurt my sides with laughter.

    “Major Payne” is one of the funniest movies that I enjoy to watch over and over again. I thought that Damon Wayans delivered a knockout performance as the loud-mouthed, gold-toothed, trash talking, squeaky voiced Major Benson Winifred Payne. He was so funny that I nearly had a heart attack while laughing at the same time. After a major drug bust goes extremely well in South America, Major Payne (Damon Wayans) returns to Parris Island, South Carolina and finds out that the U.S. Marine Corps is throwing him out of the military back into civilian life. After two weeks of civilian life, Payne is let back into the military under one condition: go to Virginia and train a group of delinquents for an ROTC program at Madison Academy. Payne regretfully accepts the job and puts each of the boys into 8 weeks of living hell! It becomes a fight because the boys do what they can to put Major Payne out of their lives! I have so many favorites scene through out this movie but the one that shines the brightest is when Wayans had a dance sequence at a club where he performs a series of moves (including a very nice "robot"), and with the help of music from 2 Live Crew. Many of the gags are side-splittingly funny, and the vocal tones and mannerisms of Major Payne are just spot-on hilarious. And the kids in the film do a remarkable job in their supporting roles. The kids in fact steal the show (especially the younger ones). Lots of absurdity in the movie, but still here and there peeks through a poignant maturity on the deeper symbolism of what boot camp is all about Of course, it is a feel good movie so you know everything will work out in the end. Base on some of the lower reviews you can see that this movie is not for everyone, but at the same time is worth seeing. If you don't like it by the time Payne does his "Failure to communicate!" line then maybe it isn't for you. As for me it’s utterly brilliant.

    Damon is Major Funny in this one!

    Even though the storyline has been done before (The private war of Major Benson), Damon along with the beutiful and gorgeous Karen Parsons balance the film. It would be nice if they both could come together in a sequel or something else!

    Funny Movie - Does Include a Couple of Naughty Words Though

    This is a good funny movie that's mostly clean - there are a couple of times (3) where there's some naughty language, but not too bad.

    Nothing like a good bugle call tape for the kids to breakfast. I love the smell of napalm in the morning too!

    I LOVE THIS MOVIE!!!!

    Last night I saw this move for about the 8th time. I absolutely love it. I would not say that I was a Damon Wayans fan, but I can't help but be with this movie. He plays a ''killing machine'' Major who had to retire from the military because ''there was no one left to kill'' and ends up as the squad leader of a bunch of JROTC kids. There is a beautiful counselor there who tries to teach Major Payne to be more ''sen-si-tive'' to the childrens needs. But he and the children ''have a fail-u-re to communicate'' and he disciplines them as he would during his glory days in the marines. From his ''bedtime stories'' to his handling of Tiger's ''monster in the closet'' to the ways the boys try to get rid of him (pink frosted cupcake) to the way he stands up to Alex' father, to the ending . . . leaves you begging for a sequel. I am 45 year old mother of three. I LOVE MAJOR PAYNE, and after seeing it for the 8th time, decided it was time to buy it on DVD and not have it only on VHS.
