A slapstick comedy that keeps you laughing 25 years later
4 January 2002 | by rmccaigSee all my reviews

A Grand Slapstick comedy about four buddies serving in the army. Their long-suffering sergeant attempts to whip them into shape but the conflict spirals out of control. I caught this gem in Munich in 1975 and the German title translated loosely to The Four Troubles of Company C.
