Jerry and Dean in the army
19 June 2000 | by Petey-10See all my reviews

At War with the Army is set during the World War II.Alvin Corwin and Vic Puccinelli used to be good buddies but after joining the army Vic becomes a bossy sergeant.At War with the Army is an average Jerry Lewis comedy from 1950.The movie offers many funny scenes, that make you laugh.There are also some music scenes, like Jerry and Dean movies usually had.If you are a fan of Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin comedies, like I am, then this is a movie for you to watch.
