Comments from Youtube

Benjámin Kurilla : - Private! I didn't see you at camouflage training yesterday! - Thank you Sir!

Ben Wasserman : Rest in Peace R. Lee Ermey :(

Meme Crusader : The dislikes are from steers and queers.

Hustle Man : For everybody saying you couldn't have kept a straight face trust me you would have out of fear.

What Burns My Bacon : There is no humanly way I could keep a straight face.

Luketheduke : R.I.P Gunny. Don't be too hard on the angels up there.

M Gosby : Tremendous actor. Will be impossible to forget him, no matter what those 1.5K commies who clicked thumbs down think about it.

Nealon Miller : Fun fact: this beloved character is, by R. Lee Ermy's description, "a terrible Drill Instructor."

SeanO Covers1999 : Considering how Ermey's performance was improvised(RIP), I'm surprised Pyle was the only one who couldn't keep a straight face.

Jackson Rushing : This was a stellar performance, but the reaction to it defies what Kubrick and Ermey were trying to convey: that Hartman was actually a TERRIBLE drill instructor. Ermey even admitted that he deliberately went above and beyond how a good a drill instructor should act. Any drill instructor worth his salt would have recognized that Leonard was not fit to handle being in the Marine Corps and would have sent him home instead of continuing to bully him. There's also the fact that Leonard was showing clear signs of mental instability even before he finally flipped and killed Hartman; a proper drill instructor would have noticed this and chalked it up as another reason why Leonard would need to be sent home--they wouldn't ignore it (or outright fail to notice it, like Hartman did) and keep going.

Luis Martinez : I had the honor to meet the Gunny at my first Marine Corps Ball, he was the guest speaker and did his DI routine. He was so down to earth. I was like the only junior Marine who had the cojones to approach him. Beer and liquor helped lol. I was star struck momentarily but ended up getting a picture with him and he even gave me an autographed program that was meant for my commanding officer. He even remarked that I was the only junior Marine to actually go and talk to him. The other Marines were kind of scared since he was talking to our senior personnel, I gave no fucks, walked up to him as he was talking to my SgtMaj who actually cut his conversation short so I can speak to Gunny. It's sad that he's gone. He definitely was a pop culture icon. First and foremost he was a hard charging devil dog! Oorah Gunny your up there standing watch at the pearly gates, you were too hardcore for hell so the devil sent you to heaven!

Dr. Jennifer Jewell PhD/Earthquake Chaser : RIP Gunny Much Love ❤️

kingmii73 : Everyone talking about R. Lee Ermey but what about the actor who played Private Pyle? I think he did an amazing job

Darude Sandstorm : Never forget, Marines die, that's what we're here for. But the Marine corps lives forever, so you live forever! RIP Gunny.

BigCheech 4509 : “Your Days Of FingerBanging Ol Mary Jane Rotten Crotch Through Her Purty Pink Panties Are Over”

vr4 bastard : theres no racism inside this man, he hated everyone equally.

Justin Sabatini : 5:21 I almost had an aneurysm from laughing so hard

The Ugly Barnacle : And to think almost all of R. Lee Ermey's colorful lines in this film were ad-libbed and not scripted in any way.

solamisandwich05 : Just heard the sad news. Semper Fi good man. Make those angel maggots shape the hell up. *R* *Lee* *Ermey* : *March* *1944* - *April* *2018* *RIP* *gunnie*

Dyslexic Batnam : 7:51 Damn I just realized that's foreshadowing

thomas smith : The PC world would go insane if they watched this movie. LMAO

Z3ph7r : In loving memory of Ronald Lee Ermey March 24, 1944 - April 15, 2018 Gone but not forgotten. You will be missed. Thank you for your service.

Jeremy Stephenson : "5'9", I DIDN'T KNOW THEY STACKED SHIT THAT HIGH!" Damn, I love this movie!

Deplorable #1 : "This is my rifle, this is my gun, this is for fighting, this is for fun!" Such a good movie!

Tallacus : Hats off to R. Lee Ermy, Vietnam Vet, real life Drill Instructor, actor and beloved father and grandfather, they say other then the love he had for his family his only other love was the Marine corps, Semper Fi Sergeant Ermy, truly a great American

Cg Studios : RIP you legend you served your country well and will be missed 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦

Agostini : 1:14 *new target acquired*

Robert Johnson : Dude should have won an oscar for this role. Top notch insults

22steve5150 : When I was in boot, we had a guy who had the same problem you see with Pile at the 3 minute mark, when he got nervous or distraught he would get this grin and he couldn't help it. Poor dude must have been the god of push ups by the time we graduated.

AlphaHuntz : Who else came here after hearing he passed away

Nickoli Lion : He was not allowed to die without permission!

Yulema Nunez : Marines never die they just go to hell and regroup

Sharar Ahmed : RIP RONALD

Cao Ang : *>Says there’s no racial bigotry here* *>Makes jokes about fried chicken and watermelon to a black man*

Conrail Gp-40 Guy : 6:44 YOU OWE ME FOR ONE JELLY DOUGHNUT!!!!!!!

Metal-Thrashing-Mad : REST IN PEACE LEE!!!!!

John s Perez : "Not with your hands numbnuts, With mine! Don't pull my hand towards you! Lean into it!"

Ratkill9000 : Rest in Peace Gunny

arbitterm : Kubrick had to call cut and ask Emery what a "reach around" was. Still my favorite piece of trivia from this movie

green49285 : Became the killer they wanted him to be

WolfsbaneFilms : “I guess the corp don’t get theirs” 😂😂

Sly Smilin Cat : The Very Best Part Of The Movie Lived Next 2 Parris Island Sc Near Beaufort 🐯🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🌴🌙

CwC. Mendoza : Semper Fi R.I.P To The Gunny Til Valhalla

The Weeping Willow : "Your all equally worthless here....."

SpaceTrucker : I can usually keep a straight face until he gets to Private Pyle... Did your parents have any children that lived? Sir yes sir! I bet they regret that!

Jack Andersen : Kubrick!! Unique visionary - and truly an artist 🎨 Hell I like you, son! 💄Have the GODDAMN courtesy to give him a' reacharound 😂

cream bun : Not sure what's up with the sketchy editing.
