Up the Academy

The guys discuss Up the Academy. Topics include: Mad magazine, Ralph Macchio, E.T., Robert Downey Sr., military school, and mostly, short collectors.

“Before he waxed on (and off) as the Karate Kid, a young Ralph Macchio appeared in this uproarious adolescent comedy about a group of mischievous military school misfits forced to suffer under a sadistic headmaster (Ron Leibman). Directed by the independent-minded Robert Downey Sr., the film features Barbara Bach as a gun-toting armaments specialist and Tom Poston as an instructor who loves bed checks.”
