Discontinuous plot, but very funny
10 October 1998 | by (Nepean, Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie may have been amazing when seen in the theatre in its orginal (Spanish? Italian?) As I saw it, edited for television and dubbed into English, it was still very funny, but the plot was hard to follow. If your only exposure to the lighter side of WWII has been "Hogan's Heroes" you NEED to see this film. (HH had humour about grade 9 level, this movie is at least college level.) Warning for parents with young children: one of the multi-national main characters is a Greek prostitute, thus there is some dialogue concerning extra-marital sexuality. If I could vote, I would rate this film 7 out of 10.
