Schweik is a simple-minded man and WWI is about to break out any day now. And, all around town are spies for the Emperor who arrest folks right and left. Additionally, folks are being called up for military service--Schweik gets caught up in both these efforts.
I do hope that other people on IMDb eventually review this film--particularly folks from the Czech republic or who are old enough to remember seeing the film when it debuted. This is because to me today and in the United States, I just didn't get the joke. I know that "I Dutifully Report" (a.k.a. "Good Soldier Schweik") is supposed to be a comedy--the problem is, I didn't find any of it funny. In fact, I kept falling asleep again and again. As for my wife, she kept complaining that the film wasn't funny. So, at least as far as we're concerned, we just didn't enjoy the movie.
