Israel best movie
27 December 2003 | by PeteRoySee all my reviews

Most Israeli movies are stupid, idiotic, and simply BAD.

But this movie is great, very funny, very good.

This movie tells about the army reservation unit that really is useless and can't deal with themselves.

A must watch if you are an Israeli.
