The army plot was kind of weird but it was a situation comedy with Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward. Refreshing and hilarious.

A Lovely Triangle by Joan Collins,Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward

This was a bad movie. Newman was terrible and Woodward was okay. It was made in 1958, the year they were married. Leo McCary directed and wrote the screenplay with Claude Binyon. These two must share the blame with Newman and Woodward for this fiasco.

Max Shulman, was a popular TV writer and author of humorist books and I think Rally Round The Flag was a funny, entertaining read.

I must be in a minority here, because the movie was well received: "Rally 'Round the Flag, Boys! was nominated for the Golden Laurel Awards held on September 23, 1959 and received 4th place for both Top Comedy Female Performance (Joanne Woodward) and Top Comedy. Director Leo McCarey was later nominated for the Directors Guild of America Award in 1960 for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Motion Pictures for Rally 'Round the Flag, Boys!." And a 1958 review in the NYT was favorable.
