Atten-hut, dudes. Fall in with the cadets of Sheldon R. Weinberg Military Academy, where the new arrivals have decided that anything goes. So the first things to go are the rules. In the tradition of Stripes and Police Academy, Up the Academy deploys film-debuting Ralph Macchio and company in a series of raunchy, madcap maneuvers. Barbara Bach as a fully armed armaments expert, Tom Poston as an instructor whose favorite subject is bed check and Antonio Fargas as a sadistic soccer coach provide choice comic moments under the direction of Robert Downey (Putney Swope, Greaser’s Palace). The soundtrack rocks with Cheap Trick, Sammy Hagar, Pat Benatar, David Johansen, Lou Reed and more.
