    A very unfunny funny comedy, either the worst or close to it, first time was somewhat funny, but got tiresome later on. Stay Away! Keep Private war... well Private

  • One of Hope's best efforts post-1950s

    Though Bob never really lost his touch as a comic actor, it's no secret that many of his films after the mid-1950s just didn't have that same magic feeling that most of his previous work had. Knowing this was one of the last films Bob made, my hopes weren't high but I am pleased to report this is a good film.Hope's characters were pretty much all the same guy throughout his career but the Sgt. O' Farrell character is more heroic and less of a skirt chaser than what we have seen in Bob's previous movies. While I love the typical bumbling girl-crazy character Bob plays, even in the 1950s it was getting to be a bit of a stretch for the aging actor to pull off.This may be one of Hope's lesser known films but I highly recommend it for his fans. It's worth viewing.

    probably the funniest movie Hope has made besides "Boy did i get a wrong number!"....this picture is really funny and fast-paced from start to finish..the script is outstanding-well put together and very witty..many funny sequences and situations with Hope and co-star Phyillis Diller -a perfect,natural comedy team. Director and writer Frank Tashlin does a wonderful job of crafting this film---many critics and fans alike have slammed it for being "insensitive" or "offensive" but remember it was made in 1968 America...not a whole lot of political correctness around then..the situation in Vietnam may have colored the critical reaction to this picture..give it a chance and you will find yourself laughing out loud--and never mind what Leonard Maltin says!

    Laughed so hard when I first saw this. Bob Hope and Phyllis Diller are wonderfully paired in this movie.
