Storyline

Vacuum-cleaner salesmen Homer "Jeeter" Smith and "Breezy" Jones are accidentally inducted into the army, and "Jeeter", who can sell anything, immediately begins to try and convince, Colonel Dobson, their cavalry officer of the Old School---from the "nothing can replace a horse in a battle" school---that the age of mechanization has arrived and "Jeeter" has a deal for him on some tanks. This also helps further the romance between the colonels' daughter, Bliss (named after the fort in El Paso), and Captain Joe Radcliffe, a mechanical engineer with the tank corps. Along the way, at an U. S. O show (featuring the Navy Blues Sextette from the film "Navy Blues"), "Jeeper" does an Apache Dance, spikes the lemonade with alum, and sings "I'm Glad My Number Was Called."

One of the funninest...clean humor...movies of all time
22 June 2003 | by (Ellwood City, PA USA) – See all my reviews

Jimmie & Phil worked terrific together. I wish it was on DVD or at least VHS. Very very funny movie and kids will enjoy it also. If you like watching the Marx Brothers movies, you'll love "You're in the Army Now" One of the funniest...clean humor...movies of all time.
