Movie Info

In this documentary, celebrities such as Jane Fonda join their voices with veterans and soldiers to recount the largely suppressed antiwar movement that occurred within the United States military over the course of the Vietnam War. Using archival news footage and contemporary interviews with Vietnam veterans, the film discusses the G.I.s' growing distrust of the war and details the U.S. Army's swift, severe and often secret response to the expression of antiwar sentiments within its ranks.

  • We haven't got space to do justice to David Zeiger's important historical documentary Sir! No Sir! but suffice it to say that it will change your understanding of the Vietnam era, even if you were alive then.

  • I expected to emerge depressed by how long these stories have gone untold, but the speakers' courage and humanity are a shot in the arm.

  • Zeiger's movie is a timely salute to the risky and brave men and women who had the temerity not only to think for themselves but to speak their minds.

  • Shines a light on a forgotten corner of the antiwar movement: the men (and a few women) who returned from their tours of duty filled with doubt and disillusionment over what they saw, and did, there.

    June 9, 2006 | Rating: 3.5/4
  • About an almost-forgotten fact of the Vietnam era: Anti-war sentiment among U.S. troops grew into a problem for the Pentagon.

    June 9, 2006 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Honors those who fought, then questioned the morality of that fight, then joined the national protest.

Audience Reviews for Sir! No Sir!

  • Oct 05, 2012
    Memorable documentary on the trials and tribulations of those who protested the Vietnam war...who actually were in Vietnam. The history of the soliders who rebelled on the field and their lives afterwards. A good addition to the Vietnam canon of film.
