Movie Info

A hapless team of military-intelligence personnel attempts to determine the location of a secret German fighter-plane base in director Dale Kutzera's pointed satire of kitschy training films and preemptive warfare. Authentic footage of World War II training films combines with a newly filmed plot concerning a military analyst, a hawkish major, and a figurehead general attempting to determine the location of a purported German Ghost Squadron base. The result is a film that knowingly parodies timeless military clichés while simultaneously skewering the Bush administration's frightening penchant for to rushing into war without proper cause. Patrick Muldoon, Elizabeth Bennett, and Mackenzie Astin star.

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (7)

It's a great idea for 20 minutes. Unfortunately, the movie's 78 minutes long.

Although [director] Kutzera does a great job of cinematic excavation and editing, Military Intelligence and You! never manages to overcome its tone of glib condescension and soar to Strangelovian heights.

An ingenious satire that could easily tip toward self-congratulation yet never does.

We get the idea -- we may even agree with it: Just don't make us sit through 78 minutes of empty cleverness.

Military Intelligence and You! is two movies for the price of one. It's both a loving spoof of World War II films and a pointed satire on America's involvement in Iraq.
