Up the Academy

A teen comedy that does not quite rise to the level of that age group, this uninspired story features Ron Liebman as the Major, a sadistic instructor at a military school. Ralph Macchio (before his 1984 hit, Karate Kid) and other teens of every stripe suffer through the indignities heaped on them by the Major and do their best with the sexual, ethnic, and racial stereotypes that the script gives them to handle. Robert Downey directs, Tom Patchett and Jay Tarses wrote the screenplay.

I am a 37 year old woman who has loved this film since the age of 12!!! It is so funny, so low-budget!!! Ron Leibman should be so very proud of his performance as Major Vaughn Liceman, and Ralph Macchio, to some is known as The Karate Kid, but to me, he will always be Chooch! I am so excited that it is being released on dvd!!! Do not hesitate to see this film....you won't regret it!
