Critic Reviews for Private Buckaroo
Audience Reviews for Private Buckaroo
Lighthearted and funny, "Private Buckaroo" really doesn't offer much more than a nice 70 minutes of smiling and chuckling. In addition, you get some great musical numbers from the Andrew sisters. It is worth the watch.
Great fun, light and easy to watch World War II comedy musical. Great supporting cast, especially Mary Wickes and Shemp Howard. The Andrews Sisters are amazing. Good songs.
This is probably the only classic film I'd rate under 5 because it lags in alot of areas. It features a fairly weak love story between an enlisted private and a generals niece. There is definitely more music than war. It also seems to jump around and the musical numbers just seem to pop out of nowhere. I think it would have been better had it not been paid by public domain. Had a big studio released it, it could have been excellent. Especially in color. It really shines with the cast of musical guests: Harry James and his orchestra, Helen Forrest, Dick Foran, and the Andrews Sisters. The films ending was far better than its beginning. Very patriotic. A nice little film.
