Weekend Warriors (also known as Hollywood Air Force) is a 1986 independently made American military service comedy film directed by Bert Convy and starring Chris Lemmon, Vic Tayback, Graham Jarvis, Lloyd Bridges, and Mark L. Taylor. It was distributed by Moviestore Entertainment and produced by Cami Taylor.
In 1961, shortly after the Bay of Pigs invasion, another world crisis with the Soviets looms in Berlin. A motley group of Hollywood actors, writers, stuntmen, makeup artists, and various studio personnel have avoided being drafted into regular military service: The misfit group, led by Hollywood screenwriter Vince Tucker (Chris Lemmon), have joined the California Air National Guard's air transport wing, "the Fighting 73rd", volunteering one weekend a month as "weekend warriors" in order to keep themselves at home.
