The two decide to join the Army as part of the water purification team and eventually find themselves on the front lines in the conflict between the northern African countries of Chad and Libya. The two men, along with a few companions, have it upon themselves to save the day in combat, something they know little about.
Plot: Bones Conway and Jack Kaufman didn’t really know what they were in for when they enlisted in the U.S. Army; they just wanted to get a job and make some money. But these new recruits are so hapless, they run the risk of getting kicked out before their military careers even begin. Soon, though, they’re sent to the Middle East to fight for their country — which they manage to do in their own wacky ways.

The Beginning of the End
In the Army Now (1994)
* 1/2 (out of 4)
Bones (Pauly Shore) and Jack (Andy Dick) decide to join the Army so that they can make some quick cash, which they plan to use for an endevor they have. However, the two didn’t realize that you’d have to do real work in the Army and as soon as basic training is over they are called to battle.
Comedian Shore started to rise to fame with ENCINO MAn and SON IN LAW made him a star. His time at the top wasn’t too long as IN THE ARMY now was followed by a string of bombs including JURY DUTY and BIO-DOME. These three films pretty much killed his career and his name over the title days were over.
I enjoyed Shore in the first two films that I mentioned but there’s no question that this act didn’t work too well. IN THE ARMY NOW is certainly better than the two films that were to follow but there’s no question that there’s not too much here. Five screenwriters are given credit for this mess, which is pretty much a stoner version of STRIPES where a couple misfits join the Army not knowing what they’re getting into.
Shore and Dick can work apart but put them together and you’ve got some pretty annoying attempts at humor. The one saving grace in the film was Lynn Witfield as the sexy drill instructor who gets several jokes thrown her way. Lori Petty and David Alan Grier are both wasted in thankless roles. Sadly, the screenplay does very little and it certainly delivers very few laughs.
The problem with a film like IN THE ARMY NOW is that it seems the filmmakers thought you could be annoying as possible and this would lead to some laughs. Sadly, it didn’t and you’re just left with a comedy that has very few laughs.
Tries to pass off stupidity for humor.
Simply not funny. The film contains one of the most stupid quotes ever uttered in any film. Trying to calm down an irate soldier and to foster cooperation, Shore says “Would America have won the Civil War had not Ben Franklin gotten along with Eleanor Roosevelt.” A dreadful film.
