Review

A star rating of 1 out of 5.

Pauly Shore is something of an acquired taste, but one thing that counts in his favour is his willingness to strain every sinew in the hope of raising a laugh. Alas, he's got no chance in this marvel of military mayhem, thanks to the eight writers who toiled on the lamentable script. Comedy seems to have been the last thing on their minds when they penned this barmy story about a doltish shop assistant who finds himself in the middle of a US mission against Libya. There's no satire, no farce, no wit - just dumb utterances and whimsical slapstick.
