  • Your Favorite Military movies with a comical twist

    I know we are all interested in themes of a historical/military matter. Sitting here i got to wondering what movies any of you out there like that have had a military/comedy theme.

    Here are a few of my choices. Ones that made me laugh, giggle and smile as i watched them.

    Mister Roberts 1955
    Henry Fonda James Cagney
    Just how do you deal with extreme boredom and a tyrant as the Captain. All this while a war is going on.

    Stripes 1981
    Bill Murray Harold Ramis
    Your life is going nowhere and the US Army needs you.

    Operation Petticoat 1959
    Cary Grant Tony Curtis
    A Pink submarine, a boat load of nurses and everyone wants to sink you.

    Father Goose 1964
    Cary Grant Leslie Caron
    Hard drinking Coast watcher invaded by french hottie and kids. The high command thinks the japanese are rough.

    The Private Navy of Sgt. O'Farrell 1968
    Bob Hope Phyllis Diller
    These two can turn the military on its ear. Crazy funny.

    M*A*S*H 1970
    Donald Sutherland Elliott Gould
    Doctors and nurses in and out of uniform. Football & Golf.
    The Korean war with a vietnam antiwar theme.

    Add any that you enjoy watching or commet to any posted.

      Imagine a ball of iron, the size of the sun. And once a year a tiny sparrow brushes its surface with the tip of its wing. And when that ball of iron, the size of the sun, is worn away to nothing, your punishment will barely have begun.

          I enjoyed the film, but I'm struggling to remember some lines from that one...I've only seen it once so that's probably why.

          I seem to recall an exchange along the following lines:

          General-type-person - "Where were you transferred from?"

          Nasty-CO-type-person "Supply Sir!"

          General-type-person - "And were you GOOD at THAT???!"

              "There you guys go with those negative waves again man."
              Scientists have announced they've discovered a cure for apathy. However no one has shown the slightest bit of interest !!

                Have we forgotten...

                ...The Dirty Dozen. Some great lines in that movie especially by Lee Marvin.

                Lee Marvin (Major John Reisman) to Major General Worden Ernest Borgnine.

                "Assuming we're out to win this war, I don't think it pays to advertise the fact that one of the men we're working for is a raving lunatic."

                Lee Marvin to Pvt Wladislaw (Charles Bronson) after Bronson admits to killing one of his men.

                "Yeah, but you only made one mistake. You let somebody see you do it."
                I come here to discuss a piece of business with you and what are you gonna do? You're gonna tell me fairy tales? James Caan in the movie "Thief" ca 1981

                  (I couldnt get the whole quote in there,but you get the idea.)

                  Wrong Clint Eastwood movie. It was an exchange off of Heartbreak Ridge.

                    That's the one we were talking about. I think.

                      Probably Dating Myself, but.....

                      Does anyone remember Francis the Talking Mule? "Francis Goes To West Point" "Francis Joins The WACS" "Francis Joins The Navy" and the first one "Francis"

                      Francis the Talking Mule

                      Or even more recent....how about McHale's Navy? McHale's Navy Joins the Air Force? Ernest Borgnine, Tim Conway, and Gavin MacLeod.

                      F-Troop.....although it wasn't a movie....man was that funny.

                          Kelly's Heroes yeah thats a good one:

                          "Where are my aerial photographs?"

                          "Sometimes we put paint into our rounds. Paints pretty pictures."

                          Donovan's Reef I consider a in-betweener between the two spectrums (military but not really) but good laughs when Lee Marvin and John Wayne have it out all the time:

                          "Limeys. I distinctly 'eard 'im say Limeys."

                              Both F-Troop and Francis, are classic Military/comedy.

                              Francis, was one of the best kept secrets of America during WW2.
                              :bowdown:

                              F-Troop, told the real story of outpost life in the american west.


                              I'd actually like to watch these two again on DVD. Maybe they are in the bargain bin at Best Buy.

                              Thx for the reminder....:thumb:
