To escape from the police, Bud Abbott and Lou Costello sign up for service in the army - where they naturally bring chaos to their regiment. Also in their regiment are rich kid Randolph Parker III (Lee Bowman) and his former driver Bob (Alan Curtis), who now wants to have revenge for everything he had to go through while in Parker's employ. They are both in love with the same girl, too, camp hostess Judy Grey (Jane Frazee) ...

Parker is actually not interested in serving and hopes his dad (Douglas Wood) will get him out of it in no time, but his dad thinks the army is the perfect place to cut his playboy son down to size. Parker actually finds out about a talent of his, he's really good at shooting, but then he lets his company down during a shooting contest on a whim, he runs out of friends all too quickly. During wargames though, Parker finally shows what he's made of as he saves rival Bob's life and then is instrumental in helping his regiment to win the games ...

 

One of the best Abbott & Costello comedies: The boys are still young enough, their routines fresh enough, and their act has not yet become a tired clichée. Sure, Abbott is already losing much of his shine as straight man, but he hasn't by far become as redundant as in later efforts of the couple. As for the actual story of the film: It's cheesy as can be and totally uninteresting, and the film's main attraction Abbott and Costello aren't even part of it, but fortunately the whole thing takes up rather little room, so that's good.

In all, not exactly a comedy classic, and even at the height of their career Abbott & Costello prove to be no Laurel & Hardy, but a fun film nevertheless.
