Larry (Larry the Cable Guy) and his two buddies (Bill Engvall and D.J. Qualls) are mistaken as U.S. Army troops when they spend a weekend playing soldier at an army base. The trio is loaded on an airplane heading for Iraq, but while on route, they are accidentally dropped in Mexico along with a hard-nosed sergeant. Unaware of the geographical error, Larry leads his crew to fight bandits who are terrorizing a village. Also with Keith David and Marisol Nichols. Directed by C. B. Harding. [1:30]

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.




INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
