Snafu proves that even an idiot can make good
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.

In this longer than usual installment of Pvt. Snafu, there are some unusual doings. First, he's been assigned to a lonely island outpost to keep a lookout for the Japanese. Second, in an odd move, he has a bird as an assistant. I've seen almost all the other Snafu films and can't remember seeing this plot element. Despite seeming like a ridiculously unimportant and boring job, thanks to the smart bird, our bird-brain (Snafu) actually manages to make good--though he has no idea he's done so.

Overall, not one of the funniest Snafu films but it's still very watchable and clever.
