This movie starts with the character John Winger losing his job, girlfriend, apartment and his car all in one day. He convinces his friend Russell Ziskey to join him at the Army Recruiting Office, and they were quickly off to basic training. Through the loss of their bumbling drill sergeant, this team of misfits manages to overcome and persevere. Through all of the hilarity that Murray has to offer, the story sends them on a mission to organize themselves for graduation ceremonies. Showing up in the nick of time, the non-uniformed troop performs a perfect performance for the crowd and the pleasure of the General. He is so pleased with the fortitude of the troop that he sends them on a mission to Italy, where they continue to carry on their non-military style of getting things done.

However, this group of misfits once again puts themselves into unfortunate but hilarious situations and eventually ends up crossing borders into the wrong country. Having to escape their captors and make it back to the United States alive, it takes all of the troop working together to get them out of their predicament.
