Have watched this movie more than once. Will probably watch it again . . . and again . . . Always fun to watch this little man work out with the troops trying to gain their respect!

Simply a classic movie. No matter how many times I watch Renaissance Man I find myself laughing and enjoying myself. This is most definitely a movie to add to your video collection as Danny DeVito will keep you laughing and the plot will keep you interested in what is going to happen next. In case you are here to see what this movie is all about, Danny DeVito is your main character who runs into a bit of a hard time. He finds himself at the army (if you couldn't tell from the movie cover) and while there he experiences challenges, learns lessons and ultimately will make you laugh and keep you on the edge of your seat!

I love this movie. Yes, it is formula but what isn't these days?

Take an abrasive and obnoxious (a role in which Danny DeVito excels) ad man. Loses his job pitching an inane product while driving and cursing at the other drivers. The clients were understandably miffed and left, taking his job with them.

Now in the unemployment line for the first time in his life, his wonderfully acerbic attitude continues to endear him to the unemployment clerk and all around him. Finally she lands him a job: teaching. And the fun begins.

Hired by the army to teach new recruits, products of contemporary education, to think.

Using Shakespeare's "Hamlet" Bill Rago (Danny DeVito) brings his class to understanding; life, the army, themselves. And does it without getting preachy.

This movie has to be seen (and again) to really appreciate some of the depth (albeit in sparse doses). There is a great line, relevant always, but maybe even more today when too many poor choices are made by people: "The choices you make dictate the life you lead."

I enjoyed Renaissance Man when it first came out and continue to enjoy it to this day.
Danny DeVito's character is 'mid-life' and unhappy. He finds joy in the most unexpected way and becomes a better man for himself, his daughter, and everyone his life touches.

A smart talking ad exec blows his last presentation and ends up on unemployment. Eventually, his case worker comes up with a job for him: teaching Shakespeare to Army recruits who do not excel at math, english or good behavior. Needless to say, the teaching and training go both ways, and everyone is transformed in the best possible way by the experience. I cry every time.

I really like Danny DeVito movies and this movie is no exception. He does a great job, as usual, of conveying the emotions of the character. He is an advertising agent who gets fired and ends up leading a group of supposedly dumb U.S. Army misfits from comic books through the beauty of Shakespeare.

There isn't a bad, or even mediocre acting job. All parts are played well and the all actors are talented people.

Classic Danny DeVito movie featuring an all star cast that explores the lives and futures of people in their changing worlds.

I mainly watched this because my husband used to work as an extra. He's the guy selling malts at Tiger Stadium. Hey baby. :-*
