No #@!! Navy's going to give some poor **!!@* kid eight years in the #@!* brig without me taking him out for the time of his #@!! life. Jack Nicholson is at his anti-establishment best in this highly acclaimed dramatic comedy about three sailors on the loose. Two hard-boiled career petty officers, Buddusky (Nicholson) and Mulhall (Otis Young), are detailed to take a young sailor, Meadows (Randy Quaid), from a Virginia Naval Base to a New Hampshire Naval Prison to serve an eight-year sentence for a trivial offence. Buddusky and Mulhall take a liking to Meadows and are determined to show him a good time on their journey north. Their escapades begin in Washington where they narrowly escape a bar fight, then get blind drunk in their hotel room. In New York, they tangle with some Marines, and in Boston, Buddusky takes Meadows to a brothel for his first sexual experience. Finally, after reluctantly turning in Meadows, Buddusky and Mulhall realise they are as much prisoners of their own world as Meadows now is of his. With a script by the legendary Robert Towne (Chinatown) and direction by Hal Ashy (Harold And Maude, Coming Home), The Last Detail is a great 1970s American movie. And remember – “I am the f***ing shore patrol!”
