Hap Smith, nightclub entertainer, has a new act since his former partner Chick Allen joined the army: with lovely new partner Betsy Carter, Hap plays a clownish parody of a soldier. Meanwhile, Chick is organizing a soldier show at Fort Benning and finds he needs his old partner's help. To get onto the base, Hap impersonates a hapless real soldier, Dogface Dolan; but circumstances force them to prolong the masquerade, creating an increasingly tangled Army-sized snafu.Written by

It's a great sorrow and continual grief in my heart to say this picture was miles away from the best pictures of the remarkable duo Lewis and Martin, sadly I have to confess even I'm a big fan of Jerry Lewis, it disappointed me entirely, the plot is unplugged and complex, nothing making sense at all, Dino singing along the movie is worst on those old fashionable and awful songs, even on those fancy sets, not enough romance allowed, just few scenes with Mona Freeman, they concentrated forces on military exercises and parachutes jumps, a sort of Army propaganda, has a minimal funny scenes which can be counted on the fingers of a single hand, the few number of votes at IMDB and rare reviews can justify such veracity, also almost all movies from Jerry Lewis were dubbed in Brazil and curiously it wasn't, why?? It's too easy explainable, the picture wasn't enough good!!
