World War II is over; to get home quickly, GIs Willie and Joe (of cartoon fame) join the "inactive reserve." Just firmly settled back into civilian life, they're recalled for a new bout of basic training at a base in Japan. From then on, the boys are in and out of one scrape after another...topped by innocent involvement with glamorous Nida, a Eurasian Mata Hari, and her sinister friends. Written by

More of the same as "Up Front" but definitely a backwards move.
This sequel to the disappointing "Up Front" is pretty much more of the same, but instead of Italy, the setting is Japan and instead of moonshine, the plot devise is a search for smugglers. David Wayne has moved on from the role of Joe, so now the part is being played by the overrated funnyman Harvey Lembeck, while Tom Ewell is still aboard as the trouble-making dimwit who has no business being in our man's army. The fact that they can't see through the obviously villainous Russell Johnson (long before playing "Gilligan's Island's" professor) and Mari Blanchard makes them even dumber than they were in the first movie, and of course, the obligatory chase sequence at the end triples their idiocy. Then there are the same officers from the first film who didn't learn their lesson and keep them away from military action other than to possibly peel potatoes. Forced slapstick from truly cartoonish characters meant to represent the American military is pretty much an insult to the fight for world peace which became a much more serious issue after the end of World War II.
