"In our country we have one wife. We call it monotony."
26 January 2017 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Typically dumb later Bowery Boys effort (the forty-sixth in the series). This one is mostly a flashback story to WWII when the "boys" all served together in the Army, ignoring the continuity of the series entirely. But lets be real, who cares? They were obviously out of ideas. Anyway, Sach and Duke go undercover in some Arabian country to meet a spy played by the sexy Lili Kardell (she's easily the film's highlight). There's a lot of jokes about Arabs that won't go over well with some today and a lot of jokes about Nazis that are of the Hogan's Heroes variety. Those probably will go over fine. But I can't keep track anymore so check your triggers and if any of this sounds offensive, maybe look elsewhere for laughs. Actually that advice goes for everyone since this comedy isn't remotely funny. I won't bother to break down the individual Bowery Boys' performances. They all stink. Huntz Hall is especially grating. Dick "Why don't you kiss her instead of talking her to death" Elliott replaces Percy Helton as Mike Clancy. It's not much fun but, looking at the other reviews, I may be in the minority on disliking this one. Judge for yourself but don't say I didn't warn you.
