    I don't give five-star reviews lightly. This is a great picture, not only to watch, but to re-watch in light of what you learned the first time through. Watch Freddie Steele as the aptly-nicknamed Bugsy move the plot single-handedly with his fixation on Eddie Bracken's "poor mother." The whole reason the Marines even show up in Bracken's life is that the chanteuse in the bar where he's moping is singing a song about Mother (which Sturges apparently wrote). Once the Marines are in the picture, Bracken loses all control over his destiny and becomes a pawn in forces larger and far more forceful than he can control, and he's tossed into a blender with venal politicos, a girlfriend who he told not to wait for him, and of course, William Demarest, a take-charge guy and scene stealer in all of Sturges's films (as far as I know). Like a Bertie Wooster story by Wodehouse, things get more and more complex, and every effort Bracken makes to wriggle out only tightens the knot.And at the end - well, let's just say the picture earns every reaction it gets. Watch for the moment when Bracken manages to flare up at the implacable Bugsy. "Say, maybe you're a little bit crazy on the subject of mothers!" "Could be," says Bugsy, without batting an eye.Gee, you think?

    I like movies from 1944, the year I was born. This one is delightful, especially the diolouge, fast , humorous and to the point.

    What a great and poignant Preston Sturges comedy, certainly one of his best. The cast is superb, down to the smallest roles. Eddie Bracken and William Demarest stand out. The writing is outstanding. A great classic. Excellent writing.
