The movie is narrated by a reflective adult and aged Eugene Morris Jerome (Matthew Broderick), Neil Simon dramatic alter ego. Thus Broderick actually plays the character in the film in two different age spans. See more »
During the game in the barracks, Wykowski says that he wants to "make it" with the Queen of England. Selridge says "that's like making it with your own grandmother". First, there was no "Queen" in 1945. In 1945 future Queen Mother was the "Queen Consort", wife of King George VI and only 45 years old. She was not elderly as she was when this movie was made and certainly not an age you would consider her a "grandmother". See more »
Well I'm disappointed. :-( This film deserves much more than a 6.6 rating! If you watch Brighton Beach Memoires you will love this film. Personally the 1st film was better but maybe because I could relate to a younger Jerome. But this film, oh yes! Christopher Walken you are my GOD! He is so funny in this film in my view! The way he makes the wise-cracking Jerome (Broderick) and fellow NY boy Epstein (Corey) is great. Ok he is a nut but that is Walken- he would be the worst Army officer I would want! Great film- the scene with the 'escort' is great! "You're not breathing! Breathe!" Unbelievable! It is also heart-warming and I love it! Overall I must give it a 8.5/10. Give it a try dont let the 6.6 rating fool you! HO NO!
