I love this movie its one of my favorites to WATCH ... And did you know that Major Payne is a 1995 comedy film, starring Damon Wayans. The film is a loose remake of the 1955 film The Private War of Major Benson, starring Charlton Heston.
Funny movie
Comments pending.
Major Payne is a goofy movie. I have seen it before but decided to watch it again considering I bought it. It is a funny movie about a guy who is in the army and kills people and has killing on the brain and then has to play JROTC commander. It is a funny movie.

Major Payne (1995)

I absolutely loved this movie in theaters when it first came out. Of course I was only 11 at the time. I can count the number of movies I've seen more than once on one hand and this is one of them. I saw this three times in theaters when it came out and if I had my way I'd have probably seen it 10 more times. This movie now just holds a nostalgic value to me. While still good it's not quite the same anymore. I still really like it though. Damon Wayans is just flat-out funny as Major Payne.
Major fun, harmless comedy, feels good, very enjoyable performance by Damon Wyans. It is totally predictable but has a very engaging cast. I enjoyed it very much, it made me laugh.

Major Benson Winifred Payne participates in special task forces in the United States military. However, when it comes time for promotion Payne is passed over for the second time in his career, which leads to his dismissal from the military. Payne struggles with life as a civilian. His former sergeant sets Payne up with an R.O.T.C. program. Payne finds the biggest group of misfits he has ever laid eyes on. Working with these misfits to win the end of year military games may cause Payne to solve both their and his own shortcomings.

"I'm sorry Mr. Handicap man; I didn't mean to offend you. Do you speak sign, can you read lips? If you don't answer me when I speak to you, I'm gonna stick my foot in your ass. Is that clear dummy?"

Nick Castle, director of Dennis the Menace, Tap, and the Last Starfighter, directs Major Payne. Castle utilizes Wayans brilliantly. This film is by far my favorite Damon Wayans lead character role. The setting and scenarios you find both Payne and the kids in are hilarious. Many portions of the film are clever, witty, and hilarious. The development of the characters is better then expected. There are also a nice variety of characters in a Goonies kind of way.

"I said hold it or I'll break it off and kick it around on the ground."

The soundtrack of this film was very good. Damon Wayans voice was hilarious and not over done. The sequence when Payne first meets his cadets is my favorite scene. I also enjoyed the cafeteria scene, police officer scenario, hired muscle scene, little engine that could story, bad man in the closet sequence, stepfather scene, day dreaming at the train station, and any sequence where Payne leads the cadence.

"You want me to show you a little trick to take your mind off that arm? Give me your hand; you might feel a little pressure."

This was a must have film for my DVD collection. After In Living Color and I'm Gonna Git you Sucka this is my favorite Damon Wayans performance. This was a film that pleasantly surprised me when it was initially released, and I still love as an adult. This is one of those rare "fun for all ages" films. That phrase gets thrown around a lot, but this film truly oozes with great content. Yes, the end turns into a cheese fest for kids, but as a whole this is a funny film with content children will love, and comments only adults will understand.

"I can clean your colon quicker then one of those burritos with extra guacamole sauce."

Grade: A-
'Major Payne' is a film about a major who makes life a living Hell for his small group of boys in the marines. This film does not really have a lot to offer, but it provides several hilarious moments that are well-worth a watch. Don't expect it to be a memorable film, however. Just expect to laugh your way through the film and at the expense of other people. The confrontation between Major Payne and the chubby boy were hilarious, and that's really all I remember about the film except for the boys wanting revenge on Major Payne. Again, it is not a great film, and it is probably best watched on a rainy day when you need some laughter.
