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.

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.

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

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

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

This Sgt. Bilko should be court-martialed.
