Movie Info

A hapless team of military-intelligence personnel attempts to determine the location of a secret German fighter-plane base in director Dale Kutzera's pointed satire of kitschy training films and preemptive warfare. Authentic footage of World War II training films combines with a newly filmed plot concerning a military analyst, a hawkish major, and a figurehead general attempting to determine the location of a purported German Ghost Squadron base. The result is a film that knowingly parodies

It's a great idea for 20 minutes. Unfortunately, the movie's 78 minutes long.

Although [director] Kutzera does a great job of cinematic excavation and editing, Military Intelligence and You! never manages to overcome its tone of glib condescension and soar to Strangelovian heights.

An ingenious satire that could easily tip toward self-congratulation yet never does.

We get the idea -- we may even agree with it: Just don't make us sit through 78 minutes of empty cleverness.

Military Intelligence and You! is two movies for the price of one. It's both a loving spoof of World War II films and a pointed satire on America's involvement in Iraq.

A hilarious takeoff on World War II training films.

This wickedly funny satire takes no prisoners as it mixes World War II-era footage with new material.

Its whip-smart handling of wartime America (both then and now) makes it as devilishly clever as it is riotously absurd.

The target's a slow-moving one, and the digs get old fast.

If you are looking for an imaginative, World War II-based spoof that is also current and fresh and politically incorrect, then you, like me, will love Military Intelligence and You!

Even at a brief 78 minutes, the jokes are too few, too repetitive and too obvious to really make this worthwhile.

This movie is an imaginative idea that, in execution, just doesn't come off.

This gets old in about 10 minutes, but the movie strikes the same comic note for another hour.

Often laugh-out-loud hilarious.

To quote the film, 'There's no real victory in winning a battle we didn't have to fight.' Fair enough, but what about making a movie that didn't need to be made?

February 7, 2008 Full Review Source:

Kutzera is unable to sustain the humor for feature length %u2013 even a brief 76-minute feature length. The first half-hour is terrifically funny, but things run out of steam not long after.

If you think all wars are a joke, and, if we'd just turn the other cheek, the world would leave us alone, then this is just the comedy for you.
