Three Israeli friends - Bobby, Benji and Hughie - joined the mandatory army drafted, but they're not quite ready to give up the freedom they've enjoyed for so long and submit to army discipline. They spend most of their time chasing women, trying to get out of doing any work, and avoiding their no-nonsense sergeant. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

definitely the worst of the series
23 May 2008 | by jannispetersenSee all my reviews

To begin with, it's important to say that you can't expect the same in this film compared to the first three. This time it can't be categorized as a teen-sex/drama, but only as a teen-comedy. And a comedy it is, but be warned, you won't need your brain for it. Sadly, this episode is very far from the realistic plot the first three episodes had. This time around you can't identify with any of the three boys and sadly for the first time you won't see the cute and a little stubborn Martha around... also it lacks for the old funny episodes in Benjis home with his parents. Furthermore the twist between the two friends Benji and Johnny is gone. I really missed it that they didn't get in a fight about how to handle the girls this time.

It still has some funny scenes, but my heart is not moved at all like after watching the first three episodes.
