Henry Beckman and Jacques Aubuchon play different characters than they did in the TV series. Additionally, several other actors, including Jean Hale, Susan Silo and Mako, had guested on the series in different roles. See more »

Goofs

The C-47 transport that Parker arrives in has red stripes through the white bars on the US national insignia, which were not added until 1948, 3 years after the end of World War II. (Other aircraft on the same airfield have the correct national insignia for late World War II.) See more »

Below-Average Episode of TV series
30 June 2001 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

They made two theatrical movies with the cast of the original series with one notable exception -- this one didn't have McHale and thus surrounds Binghamton and Parker -- with the usual shtick. There are three funny scenes and the rest of it rambles on interminably. If you like the series, you will find this bearable but are better off renting a tape with episodes from the actual series. Still, this is better than the hideous 1997 remake.
