Buck Privates Come Home Reviews

  • Sep 22, 2013

    I dunno, I enjoyed this more than the original. The gags seemed less obvious and repetitve,, and there was a bit more of a story. The little girl thing and the ridiculous overlong ending I could do without, but A and C were razor sharp here, and made the whole thing enjoyable.

    A fantastic sequel to Buck Privates that is even better than the original! Hilarious gags, routines and mayhem that makes the duo memorable. I loved it!

    This comedy is pretty average for 1947, actually it's pretty corny, and not that funny. Overall, it's okay, not good but not too bad either.

    Good old-fashioned clean fun.

    With a title that is a tweak or two away from gay porn, this follow-up to 41's "Buck Privates" offers scant evidence of Abbott & Costello's greatness. No memorable dialogue-driven routines or inspired slapstick here, just a grind-it-out motion-going exercise in killing time. The sawhorse routine and the undercranked finale are really not up to snuff.

    An OK Abbott & Costello movie, with some amusing sequences. The plot is nothing much, but then, why should it be? And what an amazing transformation of a broken-down bus!

    About as different from the original as service is from civilian life. Makes sense. It's a completely different type of film but it flows better and it is still very fun. It's also good to see the boys in uniform with Nat Pendleton again.

    More heart in this one than in the usual A&C movie, and it's fun.

    As funny as Buck Privates. If only The Andrews Sisters had returned.
