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

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.

[A] celebration of high jinks.

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.

Wacky is just the right tone for a spring comedy.

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

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

Both Martin and Hartman are masters of subtle physical comedics; a raised eyebrow here, a shrug there, and you're in the aisle. Unfortunately, even the genuine genius of those two can't save Lynn's film from its final fate.

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