No, not the John Moore film, but this one: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Behind_Enemy_Lines_(1997_film).  Buggedout

I expected this Rambo clone to be bad but it was OK in its' own way - a disgraced soldier (Thomas Ian Griffith) returns to the country where his last (failed) mission took place to rescue his friend and to kill an evil general, played by an actor with the charming first name of 'Spanky'. I kid you not.  TeddyR This lame bunch of crud was full of people shooting the [expletive deleted] out of everything and everybody, while never seeming to aim or reload but there were two high points:

1. The two buddies jump off the same waterfall as the two opponents in Enter The Ninja do and
2. One of the soldiers relieves himself on a bush, not knowing that there is another guy hiding in the bush. The guy stands up, wipes the pee off his face and says "I've had my shower, where's breakfast?"  Buggedout TeddyR

Good fun: I think I'll watch it again tonight.  Cheers

I've only seen it once years ago but remember thinking that it was an alright movie. 
I think the main problem I had with it was the casting of Owen Wilson.  I like him as an actor and he can be great in the right role, however he just didn't work for me in this film.

Here's a pretty cool video someone put together:

I think Trevor's talking about this one:

Small | Large
not the one with Owen Wilson.

[Incidentally Owen Wilson was serviceable in that movie, but he is no action star.]

I haven't seen the one Trevor linked.  Seems fun enough though [I think it's the urine bit that sold me really.]

That's the one: those ex soldiers have a mantra which goes "May our days be long and lazy!"  TeddyR TeddyR

The pee sequence was very funny: also when Thomas Ian Griffith punches the living daylights out of his conniving CO.  TeddyR

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
