Four boys are sent, for different reasons, to a Military Academy. The life of discipline asks a lot of the four geeks. Of course these boys know how to make a party out of the hard times. Will they be "real men" after one year.
Up the Academy (1980) has a tie to X-Men: Apocalypse (2016). Oliver, in this film, was played by J. Hutchison. J. Hutchison is Parker Stevenson's brother. J. Hutchison is now known as Hutch Parker, and is a 20th Century Fox executive. He was one of the producers of X-Men: Apocalypse (2016), and there is an inside joke with this movie playing at the movie theater in X-Men: Apocalypse (2016), even though it takes place in 1983, and this movie came out in 1980.
Ms. Bliss? Miss Bliss?
Guard: Hey! What are you doing here?
Ike: Uh, nothing. Just taking a walk.
Guard: Well, take it outside. Now! Let's go. Get out of that room!
Ike: Shit, this is the wrong room.
This goof takes place during the scene in the game-room where Oliver, Ike, Rodney, and Hash have devised a plan to trick Chooch into thinking they're not going to try to get the pictures back. You can see the four boys at a pool table with Chooch at another pool table in the background. When the camera cuts to a close-up of Chooch, the balls on his pool table change positions.
The end credits show the opening credits sequence in reverse (the toy soldiers are falling up instead of down).
Ron Leibman's credit was present in the theatrical release; it was removed at his instigation for home video / cable versions.
