Storyline

US Army Corporal Rudy Spruance arrives at a remote American military base at Qangattarsa, Greenland - located somewhere above the Arctic Circle - just before the summer solstice in June, 1979. Beyond a two day out of the year environmental occurrence which negatively affects his arrival, his reaction to which he will probably be forever best remembered by his fellow GI's at Qangattarsa, Rudy faces two problems: he is not supposed to be there, his next assignment which was supposed to be at a base in Hawaii; and he cannot convince anyone at Qangattarsa that he is not Corporal Martin Pederson, who is the GI assigned to this posting. Based on the paperwork at the base, Rudy learns that Pederson is a model soldier - an army brat - whereas he himself only enlisted as it was better than the alternative of jail. Lieutenant-Colonel Lane Woolwrap, the base's long time commanding officer, has long wanted a person in Pederson's position as the base's Public Information Officer, aka the head ... Written by Huggo

Not the film you were expecting - and MUCH better for it.
14 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

I was taken to see this film by a friend, so knew nothing about it before seeing it (except that it starred the guy from "American Pie"). I thought the film was strange and unusual, but very thought-provoking, with shades of the Vietnam War, the "War on Terror", the mysterious CIA 'rendition' flights etc. I was surprised by the way, the comic tone shifted into something heavier and more serious.

Then, I went home and looked the film up on the internet... Boy! If ever a film was mis-sold! The poster says "Biggs is a comic genius". Well, he might be, but in this film he's the straight guy for sure. If I'd gone to see this, thinking it was "American Pie 4" (or does that already exist?), I would have been REALLY disappointed.

Really recommended.
