Extraordinarily obvious army comedy (think a bootcamp version of Police Academy) saved from total ineptitude by the presence of some of the biggest comic talents of the 80s. The jokes are weak but they're delivered by pros.

An energetic, sometimes raunchy, always witty of politics and the military, done in an infectiously lighthearted manner. The comic timing and enthusiasm of the entire cast makes this film hilarious through and through. One of the best comedies of the 80's.

Though it came 1 year after Caddyshack, this feels like a step backwards for Murray, even though he's the star. Not as good as the rest of the Murray cannon, but if you have some time, check it out.
