Storyline

Three Israeli friends - Bobby, Benji and Hughie - joined the mandatory army drafted, but they're not quite ready to give up the freedom they've enjoyed for so long and submit to army discipline. They spend most of their time chasing women, trying to get out of doing any work, and avoiding their no-nonsense sergeant. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

A Whole Lotta Fun
29 August 2003 | by (Leicester, England) – See all my reviews

Though This Film Features Mild Sexual Content, I First Viewed It When I was 11, And It Is One Of The Best Comedy Films I Have Ever Seen. Its My Favourite Of The Popsicle Movies, and I Would Recommend It.

My Favourite Scene Is When Bobby, Benji and Huey Dress Up as Girls and Have To Sing Live In Front Of a Lot Of People, and One Of The Major's Thinks Huey's an Actual Woman and Falls For Him..

Comedy at Its Best
