Steve D Not enough here to make a movie. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/24 Full Review Shizue Leigh H Loved it all. Mary Wicked (all 5'10" of her), the Andrews Sisters and Huntz Hall. It's pure heaven for this Baby Boomer. Non-stop nostalgia. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/22/22 Full Review Audience Member Almost no plot, but the Andrews Sisters are very charming. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Lighthearted and funny, "Private Buckaroo" really doesn't offer much more than a nice 70 minutes of smiling and chuckling. In addition, you get some great musical numbers from the Andrew sisters. It is worth the watch. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review bill t This really doesn't try to amount to much but a World War II entertainment vehicle. The Andrews Sisters, Dick Foran, Huntz Hall, and Shemp from the Three Stooges (Yes!) all are here, the main story is about a singer wanting to get into combat service but can't because of flat feet, and there's some other minor needer-natters going on too, but there's nothing earth-shattering divulged here. No, you'll be getting a dozen or so songs, most of them heavily patriotic, most of them hardly known today (I actually recognized Rinky-Dinky-Parlez-Vous only because I've heard it recently). This movie IS fun, actually. The Andrews Sisters know how to entertain (watch them!) and are supported nicely by a wide range of entertainers. Foran is a great trumpeter, and Shemp does his whole Three Stooges routine without a Curly or Moe around. A little gem. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Great fun, light and easy to watch World War II comedy musical. Great supporting cast, especially Mary Wickes and Shemp Howard. The Andrews Sisters are amazing. Good songs. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
