The new bunch are good actors, but without that vital touch of insanity. The laughs are sparse and often telegraphed.

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.

Sgt. Bilko isn't a bad movie, it just isn't worth the six or seven bucks to get in.

Steve Martin shies away from such virtuoso cynicism; his insincerity is insincere.
