Very different from the typical Snafu film...
14 May 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The Private Snafu films were clearly made to be seen by soldiers and not by the general public. The dirty jokes, sexual innuendos and language is relatively tame today but never would have been allowed in the regular theaters due to the Production Code. But, such off-color remarks went over very well with the enlisted men and helped to illustrate important information in a humorous and memorable fashion.

This Snafu film is quite different from the rest in style and characterization. Here, Snafu is NOT an idiot and it consists of a more mature Snafu landing on a lonely island in the Pacific. At the same time, a very stereotypical Japanese officer arrives and they fight it out almost like Bugs and Yosimite Sam having a scrap. Very enjoyable but more like a mass-consumption cartoon and with a little less of an edge than usual--though the end is rather dark in spirit. Still, it's quite enjoyable and worth finding.
