Sgt. Bilko is in charge of the Motor Pool at an Army base. He's also a good-natured con man, providing gambling facilities for the soldiers on base.

During the sequence where the soldiers are on the field attempting to drill with rifles, one of the soldiers has a negligent discharge. There are 2 errors here. The rifle has no magazine in it therefore there would be no ammunition. You can still chamber a round with no magazine but the armory would never permit loading one round only into the chamber and issuing a weapon. The second error is that if a negligent discharge had occurred, the shooter would've been detained and an immediate investigation by Military Police would have been conducted. See more »

What's going on?
Sgt. Raquel Barbella:
It's Private Doberman, he's the one that looks sort of human. Last night in the gym he said, "I feel as strong as a horse." Some guy from Company P overheard him and said, "Yeah, for how much?". That's the golden rule around here, you don't say nothing unless you're prepared to back it up.

Can't believe you guys rate this so low....it's FUNNY
Yeah, I'm old enough to remember the TV show, and the Bilko character that endeared itself to TV fans, shines through one of the best comedians of this generation.
Nicely done, Steve! The plot? I read some comments criticizing the plot! Huh? This is COMEDY....it's meant to be fun, and in this case, to reminisce a bit. That's all this movie set out to do, and it accomplished it. 10 !
