MAJOR PAYNE (Theatrical Release USA 1995)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì 

Major Payne—actor Damon Wayans—portrays the difficulty in moving from being a combat soldier into a less stressful occupation stateside teaching boys military discipline. The movie serves up a nice platter of comedy with originality and good acting. While this storyline has been investigated from several different angles through the years, this movie reached a genuine chuckle zone more often than other movies within this storyline.
