In the scene where Kuffs asks his trainer why they're running when they're going to drive most of the time, the cadets are all wearing sweatshirts with their last names on the front. One of those shirts has the last name "Gideon", a nod to co-writer/producer Raynold Gideon. See more »

Good clean violence and side-splitting comedy!
20 May 2000 | by diovorezSee all my reviews

This movie is one of my favorites. I saw one scene of it (the dry cleaning store scene) when I was 8, but I was too young to care. Fast-forward to about 2 weeks ago, when my mom rented me some movies, and I fell in love with Kuffs.

Christian Slater pretty much plays the same character: a smart-alec with the ability to kick some @$$. I love the way he can play that role in this movie, with a hilarious joke or monologue to the viewers just about every other minute!

Sure, it has its rough spots: the action could have been better, and I would have liked to see a little more of Milla Jovovich, but overall, it's a winner.

I give it a 9 out of 10.
