1st Off, Great Movie. I was in the Army, and I can tell you the orderly room sequences were very realistic, much more like the Army I was in than lets say From Here to Eternity. The First Sgt, the Company Commander, The Supply Sgt, The Platoon Sgt and the Privates were just too hilarious & realistic to believe. Along with the great Musical & Comedy skits by Dean & Jerry I rate this movie much higher than some of their later ones, ie, "The Caddy" & "Thats My Boy".
But all in all I recommend the viewer to watch this movie in its entirety and if the viewer happens to have served in the military before, I guarantee this will ring the remember bell of the funny & not so funny times of their military service. Along with films like "Stripes" this one is a keeper. Check it out.
