A fun war time comedy.
25 August 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio) – See all my reviews

based on the comic strips "Barney Google" and "Snuffey Smith", this is a funny war time film. Concerning a secret formula that the nazis are trying to steal, this film provides good solid entertainment. The local independent channel used to show this once in awhile at 10:00am, but have since stopped running the morning movies in exchange for some lousy shopping at home show. Too bad, I never got a chance to tape it.
