Masters of Self Promotion
28 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two plot lines. The three bunkies are given the job of reviewing candidates for promotion. They are suddenly surrounded by soldiers doing whatever they can to butter them up. Igor serves food to B.J. Rizzo steps in with jeeps for private use. Klinger plays an accordion. Charles is threatened by a monstrous infantryman played by Hall of Fame and NFL stalwart, John Matuszak. The second plot (there always is a second plot) involves an innocent young soldier who has been wounded and is being hassled by a couple of jerks. Potter takes a shine to him and these guys resent the attention. He tells Potter he is going to volunteer for bomb demolition. This is a stupid move to appear macho Anyway, things come to a nice boil on both fronts.
