    One of the best “fun” movies of all time.
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedy. -- Ernest Benn

      And people complain about the Sherman. Pfft!

      Three Sherman tanks and some "positive waves" were enough to open a hole in the German lines and to "go for the gold".

      It's all about "digging how righteous and beautiful it is..." and victory will come.
      The Purist

      Words ought to be a little wild, for they are the assault of thoughts on the unthinking - John Maynard Keynes.

        Did you hear that? They've even got the grave diggers!

          Yeah, well it's amazing what a little customization will do, ain't it?
          But then again, one Tiger was the only tank running at all by the end of the movie...

          I have seen those Halftracks rotting away in the back lot at Universal. Shame shame...


          And we were just talking about Hollywood movies, for all it's flaws, this was one of the better ones. It is FUN to watch!

            It's been a while since I watched Kelly's Heroes, I thought they swapped a Sherman for the Tiger...

            Still, it's a bit of fun

              This film is basically the American Italian Job. It is funny. Hippies and Country Music in World War 2 France. Brilliant.

                  It's one of my all time favorites.Great cast,great characters,funny,plenty of action,and a surprising attention to detail that isn't seen in many war flicks.they built Tigers out of T-34s(they did get the paint wrong though,but we can forgive that),and how many other war movies address the issue of friendly fire like Kelly's Heroes?
