Very Silly, But Has Its Moments
8 March 2002 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty silly movie, but it has its moments if you like B-comedies. It starts with Snuffy Smith and Barney Google trying to outwit a bunch of spies who are after the Army's secret weapon, and from that premise it just continues to get less plausible as it goes along. But since it doesn't take itself at all seriously, much of it works fine as light entertainment. Comedy veteran Edgar Kennedy plays Snuffy's long-suffering sergeant, and gives his usual good performance. The "Hillbilly Blitzkrieg" would never have struck fear into the Axis, but there are far worse comedies that you could spend an hour watching.
