A Few Good Men (1992)

A Few Good Men Quote: “Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns.” – Col. Jessup

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of “A Few Good Men,” the Shat Crew dissect the military mentality, relish Aaron Sorkin’s flair for dialog and hate themselves for loving Tom Cruise. Big D argues it isn’t a court drama while Ash and Gene debate whether the lawyering feels real.

Along the way, your hosts cover “code reds,” Demi Moore’s outfits, whether Lt. Daniel Kaffee is at all redeemable, whether Jack Nicholson overacted and, of course, how “you can’t handle the truth” holds up after three decades.

Plot Summary: “A Few Good Men” Lt. Daniel Kaffee (Tom Cruise) is a military lawyer defending two U.S. Marines charged with killing a fellow Marine at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba. Although Kaffee is known for seeking plea bargains, a fellow lawyer, Lt. Cdr. JoAnne Galloway (Demi Moore), convinces him that the accused marines were most likely carrying out an order from a commanding officer. Kaffee takes a risk by calling Col. Nathan R. Jessep (Jack Nicholson) to the stand in an effort to uncover the conspiracy.
