Overview
Kelsey Grammer and Cary Elwes star in a movie based on the extraordinary true story of the outrageous lengths the Pentagon goes to defend our country... at any cost. For over 17 years - and almost as many billion dollars - military time, energy and lots and lots of cash have gone into devising The Bradley Fighting Vehicle. There's only one problem...it doesn't work. Now a new kid on the block, Colonel Burton (Elwes), has been assigned to oversee the Bradley's development - and cover-ups, rigged tests and altered documents are rising to the surface as fast as General Partridge (Grammer) can bury them. Burton discovers a monumental scandal that could break careers - which is why General Partridge will do everything in his power to keep a lid on it. And when these two opposing forces meet head-to-head in the Pentagon, you can be sure of one thing: It may get ugly, it may cost you a whole lot of tax dollars, but it will be very, very funny.
