What Did You Do in the War, Daddy? carries an engaging title but after dreaming it up the writers promptly forgot all about it and launched into a thinly-devised comedy without much substance.
It is held together by terrific performances, Philip Lathrop's exquisite, pastel-shaded photography, and Blake Edwards' instinct for composition and design, let loose in some pleasantly fantastical images.
If you might be inclined to take offense at what is callous bad taste in parodying something that was serious, after all, stay away. This only goes to show it's getting tougher all the time to make a marriage of war and farce.
Edwards has never been accused of tastefulness; this 1966 effort is typically unrestrained and raucous.
It's a well-honed farce that gave Edwards and his cast a solid framework in which to improvise, which they did to superlative effect.
War as fun in this service comedy by director Blake Edwards.
Cheerfully nihilistic WWII spoof
Tasteless shambles of a comedy.
The entire movie would have benefited from trimming a half hour from it.
There's the odd smart individual gag, and the performances (especially Coburn and Shawn), are cheery enough, but the whole is an undisciplined, overstretched mess.
Silly farce is loaded with talent and a jovial mood.
