This comedy is set in Hollywood in 1961, where a group of young men join the National Guard in an attempt to escape Vietnam. The men basically do nothing while on supposed weekend duty until they get a visit from the Army, which threatens to ship them out on active duty unless they shape up. Their solution is to hire a troupe of actors to portray convincing soldiers, put on a stage show to impress the Army officers, and make sure that enough winsome nurses are around to satisfy the proverbial lecherous tendencies of a certain colonel. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
One of the funniest movies ever made!!! I laughted so hard my ribs hurt for 2 days. It brought back memories from the days I was in the military. The producer had it right, the motor pool scenes was perfect. Just like the motor pool where I worked in the military. Its a shame that we cant rent or buy this movie. It is tied up in legal junk. its been like that for a while!!! I dont understand why this has happened unless everybody wants more money! You cant take it with you, Dont be greedy,everybody made a lot of money off this movie. Why cant we all get along? everybody always wants more,whats wrong with what you"ve got! They say money is the root of all evil, it is if you let it leed your life. If you live in a nice home and have a nice car and you can pay the bills, be happy not greedy!!! Think about the people that dont have what you got!. James Norton,Disabled Vet.
