Pvt. Snafu is on North African desert patrol. He's too smart to get caught by an enemy booby trap. He avoids the booby-trapped shower, but that camel with a contact mine for an udder... Then he finds an Arab harem full of barely clad beauties. There's the hookah full of TNT instead of tobacco, and one of the girls has bombs where her shapely curves should be. And there's a piano. The music for "All Those Endearing Young Charms" rests on top. One of the keys is booby-trapped with explosives, but Pvt. Snafu can't seem to get that last note... Written by David Steele

yet again, the human male lets his sex drive get the better of him
27 June 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

OK, so "Booby Traps" is chock full of non-PC material, quite offensive in the 21st century. As long as we understand that, it's one of the funniest things imaginable, made as a warning to American soldiers about rigged objects. Dim-witted soldier Pvt. Snafu - complete with his Bugs Bunny-like voice - is trudging through the north African desert, when he comes across a building full of scantily clad babes (I don't think that they would really allow that in a Muslim country). As expected, Snafu not only gets as horny as possible, but the whole building is rigged. By which I mean that when they say "booby" traps, they really mean it! So, it's a true guilty pleasure. Seeing some of those women, I might have easily fallen into the trap! Pretty fun.
