Damon Wayans stars in this hilarious escapade Major Payne. When peace breaks out in America, killing machine Major Benson Winifred Payne, United States Marine Corps Special Forces (Wayans), is given his marching orders… to the unemployment line. Unable to cope with civilian life, Payne is thrust back into the military regimen as commander of the Madison Academy Junior ROTC. How does the military's most dangerous secret weapon discipline a few good men when none of them is even old enough to shave? Any way he wants! At least until Dr. Emily Walburn, school counselor (Karen Parsons), joins his tour of duty. Armed with the comic genius of Damon Wayans and stockpiled with humor, "Major Payne orders up the laughs." (Los Angeles Times)

Silly slapstick movie has some violence, salty language.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Major Payne is an edgy 1995 send-up of military training that features a hard-boiled major who routinely humiliates his recruits, ranging in age from 6 to 16. His calls them such names as "ladies," "turd," "worm," "maggot," and "scrotum sac." Other profanity includes "s--t" and "t-ts." Humor derives from frequent comic references to the violence of war and how some enjoy the rush of wartime killing. He describes violent acts -- he drove a man's nose into his brain -- but no real gore is shown. He breaks a wounded man's finger to get his mind off a serious leg injury. Expect some diarrhea and fart jokes.
