Stanley Kubrick directs this shocking tale of the Vietnam War. The trials and tribulations of a group of fresh Marine recruits are explored from the perspective of Private Joker (Matthew Modine). Their drill sergeant (R. Lee Ermey) makes life impossible for them and on their last day his bullying proves too much for one recruit. Joker isn't assigned to jungle duty and instead is sent out as a war correspondent. But he refuses to be a part of shameless propaganda when he sees the horrors of war. Contains constant strong language and frequent bloody violence.

What is your major malfunction, numbnuts? Didn't mummy and daddy show you enough attention when you were a child?

Did you know?

  • Vincent D'Onofrio gained 70 pounds for his role as Private Pyle, breaking Robert De Niro's movie weight-gain record for Raging Bull (60 pounds). It took D'Onofrio seven months to put the weight on and nine months to lose it.
  • R. Lee Ermey's intimidating drill sergeant hardly blinks in any of his scenes. To make the recruits reactions to him more realistic, the actors playing the recruits didn't socialise with Ermey on set at all.
  • Anthony Michael Hall was originally set to play Private Joker, but a disagreement with Stanley Kubrick's perfectionist style of directing lead to him being fired.
  • The entire film was shot in England at Pinewood Studios and at military barracks.
  • R. Lee Ermey was involved in a car accident during filming. His jeep skidded off the road at night and he broke all of the ribs on his left side. In some scenes it is noticeable that he doesn't move his left arm at all.
