Storyline

The first German army comedy: Finally graduated from high school. Now what? The army? Basti has been dealt a jinxed hand: Despite his faked urine sample, he's found fit for service; even his conscientious objector's form goes astray. Before he knows what's hit him, Basti is dragged from his own party by military police and taken to barracks. Basti finds himself in basic training, with cropped hair, combat uniform, and a bunch of hopelessly chaotic weirdoes as bunkmates. And yet they've got to win the annual maneuver against the crack GIs from the neighboring US base . Written by Wiedemann & Berg Film

Hilarious German Comedy
1 April 2011 | by abbel123See all my reviews

Can't really understand all the hate this movie receives. Jokes are funny and the acting is solid.

And for everyone knowing the German military service and army physical it will be twice as funny, even if it isn't a realistic depiction. It should more be seen as a parody, that sarcastically shows the uselessness of compulsory military service.

Sure there isn't a lot of action, but come on, they went to McDonald's drive-through with a tank.

All in all an enjoyable comedy, that even has some kind of subliminal message.

8/10
