Surprisingly funny!!!
12 November 2006 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

With Dan Castellaneta as Homer, Grampa, Barney, Gil and Squeaky Voiced Teen.

Julie Kavner as Marge.

Nancy Cartwright as Bart, Ralph, Nelson and Kearney.

Harry Shearer as Skinner, Mr. Burns, Lenny and others.

Also with: Kiefer Sutherland, Maurice LaMarche, Russi Taylor, Pamela Hayden and Tress MacNeille.

This episode was just hilarious! It deals with Homer joining the army in Bart's place and becoming part of the "patsies" because of how dumb he is. This episode may be another one talking about the war, but it's really funny. The gags in the episode are great. The guest star Kiefer Sutherland does an excellent job doing a voice that's unrecognizable as him. I can't say I agree with the material, but as long as they come out with episodes that have as many laughs as this, I'm okay.

My rating: **** out of *****. TVPGV.
