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

A good comedy
4 March 2019 | by aalleekk1989See all my reviews

The reason for the low rating is the absolute lack of surprise in the plot - but it is a solid comedy which can be a piece of evidence against anyone who says Germans do not have humour.

I must say, as a former military service man, I was quite intrigue to find the similarities in the military life of different countries. I am full aware of the exaggeration and parody, but nonetheless it resonates.

If you just want to have a good time without turning on your brain, this is a good comedy that you will enjoy.
