In the Army Now Reviews

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.

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.

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

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.

Every promising situation -- Shore suffering through basic training, dealing with real battle and so on -- suffers immediate creative fatigue.

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

The screenplay, work by five writers, based on a story by three others, seems to have been rewritten often enough that any individuality has been lost.
