Not as good as I hoped
2 June 2015 | by stones78See all my reviews

Let me say that I really wanted to like this film, as I'm a fan of those films from the late 70's/early 80's, but it just didn't connect with me. There was certainly many familiar faces, including Robert Culp(best of the bunch), Dennis Dugan(can be annoying), Larry Hagman, Jonathan Harris, Ernie Hudson, and James Hong. Something that puzzles me is why there are several "uncredited" actors listed for this film on this site, especially when they all play important roles. They were listed in the opening of the actual film, and were "credited", so perhaps this error can be fixed. Back to the film, a big problem I had was the direction, as I couldn't tell if it wanted to be a drama or a silly comedy. The premise revolves around Hagman's character(Sgt. O'Malley)dying only days before he is to retire, and so he's unable to set his family up with a pension; that is, until his fellow officers do these crazy schemes in order to have the dead man avoid roll call each morning, so he won't lose his pension. This could've probably been an hour long show or just a special sitcom, but I'm not sure it warranted a full movie. This still wasn't a bad film, as it had a nice ending, and Culp was very good.
