One of the best comedies ever
9 November 2006 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

I also cant believe the movie is so poorly rated. Whats wrong? So many toilette-humour-pictures got much better rating. And this movie which is really full of fine humour is rated so bad.

Steve Martin is awesome here as well as all other actors. The movie IS funny, the situations are funny, the plot deserves to be rewarded.

It's one of my all time favorites - i do laugh every time i watch it.

Bilko is an incredibly charming foxy Sgt. For me it's one of Steve Martin's best roles. I cant but smile seeing his every face expression, gesture or action. Just super! And all the actors were at their best. Just on their places. I rate it "excellent"
