If I could make a mix tape of scenes from this film I'd watch them repeatedly. But as a whole, it was a missed opportunity. And the ending . . . even Obi-Wan would roll his eyes. Definitely not the droids I was looking for.
The juxtaposition of Bridges' tripped-out troops and Iran-Contra-era skullduggery makes for a few easy laughs, but the movie's satire never grows teeth; its depiction of the military as obsessive goofballs makes their excesses seem more trivial than dange
...an odd movie that falls in between the cracks of dramedy and military satire. While it has a fine cast and some terrific moments, this story of an experimental U.S. military unit with allegedly psychic powers never really gets off the ground.
