Awful
9 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For some reason, Jules White felt that service comedies worked well for Joe Besser. He made three service comedies with Besser and remade two of them. (Besser only starred in ten solo shorts before joining Moe Howard and Larry Fine for the final sixteen Three Stooges films!) This one is a remake of "Dizzy Yardbirds". The original film seems to be unavailable for viewing at this time. "G.I. Dood It" was part of the package of comedies released to television by Screen Gems. The new footage brings White back to the world of the Dogville comedies he directed for MGM in the early 1930s. Only animal haters could really like these two-reel "dogs". Much of the footage is merely lifted from "Dizzy Yardbirds" and the new footage is flat and unfunny. The final punch is a bit of a downer.
