Corrected entry: During the first few moments of the film the General that Major Payne reports into is wearing the Service Charlie Uniform. This uniform consists of a white skivvy shirt to be worn under the Service Charlie shirt. However, one is not visible where it should be. (00:04:20)

Correction: Technically Marine Corps uniforms are not required to have under shirts worn. Besides he could be wearing a v-neck which is acceptable also. And when the major reports to the school, it would not be appropriate to report in dress blues.

Corrected entry: During Payne's daydream at the train station the Viet Cong soldier's gun bounces around like rubber.

Correction: The statement is correct it's just not a mistake, it was done intentionally for comedic effect.

Corrected entry: After the opening sequence, when Major Payne is at his home base, the sign reads "Camp Pendleton, Virginia" Any marine worth his salt knows that Camp Pendleton is in California.


Correction: Any Marine worth his salt would know there is also a Camp Pendleton in VA, at Virginia Beach, VA, as well as near Oceanside,CA. See: for the website about Camp Pendleton, VA.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Major Payne and the guidance counselor are at the club, Wayans is eating his food really fast. In the next frame where the camera is behind Wayans looking at the nurse, in the corner the food is intact.

Correction: The food shown is the plate of the guidance counselor.

Corrected entry: In the scene when the cadets switch Major Payne's cupcake (so that he'll get sick) the cadets are all dressed in blue shirts and pants. But in the next scene, when the cadets are gathered around the boy who fainted (when the Major farted) you can plainly see that they're all in camouflaged clothing - even the boy who fainted. If he had been knocked out that whole time when they changed clothes, someone must have taken off his blue clothes and put him in camouflage.

Correction: Payne didn't care that the boy was unconscious, so he had the other kids change him into his camo uniform so they could go to the shooting range, where this scene takes place.

Continuity mistake: During the confrontation with Alex's stepfather, Damon Wayans forgot to remove his earring before shooting. Pay attention to his ears - you'll see an earring in one shot and then nothing.

More quotes from Major Payne

Question: Would Cadets Woliger and Fox have actually been able to attend a military academy, considering that Woliger has heart problems and Fox is deaf?

Answer: Madison is not a military academy. It is a boarding school and Major Payne has been put in charge of their JROTC program. It is, however unlikely that those cadets, or the blind cadet at the end of the film, would be admitted into a JROTC program. The Code of Federal Regulations states that the JROTC program is designed for "physically fit" students. Tiger is also much too young to be allowed to participate, you must be in at least the 7th grade to participate. Madison is apparently making exceptions to allow basically anyone that wants to participate and that would not be allowed in real life.
