Whatever Shore wants to do in the movie business is his business, but the feeling here is that he could expand his audience beyond the teen set if he were to laugh at himself a little bit more.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

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.

[An] abysmal knockoff of Stripes.

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.
May 2, 2003
Not even as good as Bio-Dome, and I never thought I would ever say that in my life.

It stars Pauly do the math.

January 1, 2000
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.
