I am my major's keeper
26 July 2010 | by TBJCSKCNRRQTreviewsSee all my reviews

This is another of the ones that were maybe a success at the time. If you actually stop to look at this, to think about the structure, the plot(well, granted, that does have its moments, and a twist or two that are decent) or, yikes, the production value… well, it will go downhill and pick up speed. After what presumably back then passed for a brief opening, consisting of actual footage from early attempts at flight(and parody of silent films) with narration with palmface-inducing wordplay(it gets better, thankfully), this proceeds to, somehow, not really follow up on what we've just seen(except as a running thing, secondary to the story). It's about the Secretary of Defence personally testing if the conscription is as merciless as his recently passed proposal said it should be. No, I don't know, either… maybe it was in case the Cold War(that definitely shows in this… there is paranoia and xenophobia, if it could be worse) would suddenly become downright toasty, and we might be called on to supply cannon fodder, I mean, troops. Anyway, he remains a soldier, in spite of how inept at it he is. There are no real developments… that is to say, they all serve to place Dirch(who gets a song at one point, and it's catchy… there is also one by Poul Bundgaard), the lead, in various places around the compound where he can cause trouble and/or do weird stuff. He serves one of the officers, hence the title. They make fun of the military a bunch, something that must have been cathartic to many young men around the time. This is immensely goofy, but also at times genuinely funny. There is clever and verbal material. It's all quite predictable and simplistic, ending exactly the way you expect it to. The music that tries to force the romance between Passer and the then rather hot Judy Gringer is terribly overbearing. This has several other names from the time, a few of them big. Sprogøe has a couple of Egon Olsen moments. There is entirely too little Nørbye in this, without a doubt the most charming woman in this. Hagen made up to look Asian is racist, and he looks a lot like Mr. Spock(not a coincidence, they were both going for the same look). I kept expecting him to deadpan "that would be illogical, lieutenant." The budget is small, and we tend to hear destruction instead of seeing it. What FX there are, aren't bad. This was probably part of how my small country dealt with the internationally known Space Race that we clearly were not going to play a large role in. There is some raunchiness in this. The DVD comes with a trailer for this and ones for a handful of other flicks from the period, a photo gallery and the lyrics to the tune "three and a half minutes". I recommend this to big fans of those who made it. 5/10
