Bones (Pauly Shore) and his friend Jack (Andy Dick) find that they are not quite ept at selling or much of anything for that matter. They find the perfect solution, the U.S. Army Reserves just a weekend each month and two weeks a year and they pay you. One can even learn a new skill.
Quickly thinking they chose water purification knowing that they would be the last to be called in the event of a conflict. Oops just what is needed in the desert. They make a last ditch effort to avoid mobilization by insisting that they are "funny that way." The Sergeant calls on them to prove it. Bones replies, "Is it hot in Chad?"
So the adventure begins with a gung ho buddy Christine (Lori Petty), Special Forces and a camel.
Will they survive and what lessens do they learn?
What is that that the camel is standing on?
The comedy is more in the Shore line with double-entendres and situations more than sophomoric slapstick. (With a few exceptions)
