Lt. Oster: It seems like every time we're about to get our hands on something...
Lt. Monday: It dissolves.
Major Thorn: I know. It's like trying to nail Jell-O to the wall!

Can't believe you guys rate this so low....it's FUNNY
4 March 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yeah, I'm old enough to remember the TV show, and the Bilko character that endeared itself to TV fans, shines through one of the best comedians of this generation.

Nicely done, Steve! The plot? I read some comments criticizing the plot! Huh? This is COMEDY....it's meant to be fun, and in this case, to reminisce a bit. That's all this movie set out to do, and it accomplished it. 10 !
