The General Douglas MacArthur quotation from a book that Sonny Paluso (Walter Matthau) read was: "The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace. For he must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war. The soldier is the noblest development of mankind. But no brute instinct can take the place of divine help". See more »
When Donald shows his new "Assault Rifle" to his fiancé, he tells her it's "308 caliber with a... *snaps stock open* Folding stock". In fact, it's not. Donald's rifle is actually a Finnish Valmet Model 76 chambered in .223/5.56mm. While the Valmet 76 was available in .308/7.62 NATO, Donald's rifle is clearly, as noted by the size & shape of the magazine, the .223/5.56 model. See more »
I can't believe the reviews from these Roger Ebert wannabes that tear it down; it wasn't supposed to make a statement or have a sound plot --- it's a COMEDY, you idiots! The numerous one-liners in this movie are priceless, and if you can't appreciate how enjoyable it is, you've gotten way too serious about movies, folks. Its humor has withstood the test of time and it's a solid 7 of 10. This is one of Williams and Matthau's funniest and well worth your time. Would you believe that I never noticed that Robin flashed his genitals in the hospital scene until my wife saw it for the first time and pointed it out --- women have a heckuva radar for those things!
