[A] celebration of high jinks.

The film is full of gratifying gags like these, but it also has to strain for newly enlarged scope.

One of the pleasures of the movie is all the little jokes hidden in the corners.

Martin's aggrieved expressions and sublime physical bits are constantly entertaining.

Most of the way, there's plenty here for anyone who's looking for a laugh-provoking time-waster.

Director Jonathan Lynn has had his hits (My Cousin Vinny) and stinkeroos (Greedy). This falls in between.

Martin's Bilko is a career grifter who comes out on top every time. He's a Bilko for the nasty '90s, oily and smug.

Though Martin and a solid supporting cast produce a few scattered moments of near-hilarity, for the most part the terrain here is as flat as it gets.

Aside from the sheer insanity of trying to leap into the shoes of the irreplaceable Phil Silvers, surely Martin should have recognized that the film had no script, no gags and no discernible point.

We've seen it before, almost frame for frame, in every other service comedy, especially Stripes.

This is shoddy hackwork, replaying classic scenarios (the honest new recruit, audits by Pentagon bigwigs and manoeuvres in Nevada) with such disregard for narrative structure the reels might be in the wrong order.
