David Parkinson
Radio Times

There's no satire, no farce, no wit -- just dumb utterances and whimsical slapstick.

Anyone determined to accentuate the positive (and damn with the faintest of praise) could say this movie isn't quite as stupid as Shore's Son-in-Law. That's the best that can be said.

Was a much better movie when called "Stripes."

If Shore's comic genius eludes you or if you find the film something less than a constant laugh riot, you may still be willing to agree that it's amiable enough and not begrudge in the least the likelihood that Shore fans will be pleased.

Is In the Army Now funny? Yes, Drill Sergeant, Sir! Is it stupid? Yes, sir! Does it kill brain cells? Yes, sirree!

If this guy is funny -- and evidently a constituency exists somewhere, probably France -- then his appeal is inscrutable to me and millions of other Americans.

Being an appealing, shallow goof-off can wear thin, and Shore seems incapable of carrying a movie, even when it's a 90-minute knock-off like this.

For this they needed three screenwriters?

This is Hollywood combat at its most irritatingly banal.

The movie's best performance is given by a camel.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Shore's character -- an immature, SoCal mall rat--may have been tolerable introducing videos on MTV, but 90 straight minutes of his lackadaisical schtick borders on torture.

A good reason to go AWOL.

Putting Mr. Shore under the authority of a pretty female drill sergeant (Lynn Whitfield) is, along with that bad haircut, one of this film's only ways of getting laughs.

Not even as good as Bio-Dome, and I never thought I would ever say that in my life.

It's a tale as old as the jokes, which were already old when the Peloponnesians went to war.

For the uninitiated, Shore's screen persona is somewhere between Jim Varney and Jim Carrey -- if you drained them of all their energy and personality.
