Yep, there were a few cliched things in BRO but I think what I liked the most about it was watching Lee Marvin in action as well as Mark Hamill (fresh from fame as Luke Skywalker)
I agree 100%. Lee Marvin makes the movie and Mark Hamil does a fine job. The guy I had trouble with was the narrator, Robert Carradine. I cannot get over him in Revenge of the Nerds, even though it was made 4 years later. He just seems like a wimp to me.
