once again, Barbara Eden's attire is out of place in the armed forces
3 October 2012 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

One of Jeannie's main traits is that her colorful outfit looks like the exact opposite of the clothes worn by the men around her. So when Barbara Eden's overprotective mother decides to pull her son out of the army in "Your Mother Wears Combat Boots", she enters wearing a new set of colorful clothes while surrounded by people in boring outfits!

This is a very lighthearted comedy directed by Anson Williams (Potsie on "Happy Days"). Nonetheless, it's pretty funny how Eden's character goofs up everything, irritates her sergeant (Héctor Elizondo), and draws the ire of the rest of the people in her platoon. While taking the time to complain about the cholesterol content of what her sergeant eats! Certainly OK for a few laughs. Watch for Eden's son Matthew in a small role.
