Hands down one of the funniest movies ever made. Add my voice to the long and growing list of those calling for this comedy masterpiece to be released on DVD. To the powers that be: We're waiting...!

Griffith is one the most underrated actors of our time. Just watch this film "No Time for Sergeants" and then "A Face in the Crowd". Few actors could pull it off. Now, when the heck does this movie come out in DVD?

I got this VCR thinking that it was the movie with Don Knotts and Myron McCormic. It was not. It was the stage play with different support actors and recorded on video tape. I enjoyed it and it is a good companion to the movie version with Myron McCormic and Don Knotts

We have watched this movie many times. In fact this video is what turned our kids onto the "old" movies that they now like so well. Please tell me there are putting it on DVD!!! Kids love it. I love it. We pop it in any time we just want a good, healthy laugh.

11 April, 2012:

There is disagreement over the aspect ratio of this release. Some say it was released in 1.85. That may be true, but I still maintain that alteration occurred at some point (because of the noticeable cropping.

Nevertheless, having the movie is better than not having it. Anyone wanting to see a timeless classic, a film that you can watch with your kids, with a script and acting being so good that the humor shines through 50 years after release, OWN THIS NOW.

--------------
Update 3 July 2010:

Well this movie is DONE. Warner Home Video just released the DVD, and they changed the aspect ratio to appease the low-end consumers and thus destroyed the movie.

Nice job. I am therefore changing my review to one of HATED IT. Yeah, the movie is one of my favorites, however the last thing I want to do now is encourage anyone to waste their money buying a poor product from Warner.

OK, I guess if you have never ever seen the film, I might say to get it---the movie is a classic. Better yet, Just borrow a copy and save your money.

The handling of this has been a complete disaster. What a shame.

Prior subject (for VHS review): OK, enough already

This is one I have had in my collection for years. Great fun from start to finish. Griffith is funny, but so are the co stars(Adams, McCormick, Knotts, etc.). Inspection scene is classic as is the pyschiatrist sketch. McCormick is hilarious as the tired old Air Force Staff Sgt. who assigns Griffith job as permanent latrine orderly(PLO!). Andy Griffith show fans will recognize that this was the first on-screen teaming of Knotts and Griffith. This one is full of memorable lines such as Pvt. Whitledge(Adams) telling Stockdale(Griffith)"Honest, Will, sometimes I wonder why they took ya in the draf at all!". Fans of MASH will recognize a young Jamie Farr in latter half of film. This film came out during a post Word War II and Post Korean War America and there is even a subplot thrown in involving the Yucca Flats testing site. I have never seen the tv version or the broadway play, but this film is just downright funny and all fans of Griffith or anyone that has been in the military should watch this one.

One of the very best comedies I have ever seen and surely in the top ten of all time! The casting is superb, with Andy Griffith (Will Stockdale) as the lead, who plays a country bumpkin military recruit, all the way down to the psychologist (name escapes me here) who psycho-analyzes Stockdale during his boot camp sojourn. Don Knotts is also superb as the manual dexterity analyst. This is also their very first instance of acting together.

Every scene is such a crackup in this movie it would be hard to decide which one was the funniest. One that I really liked is where the two MPs are running up the steps of the "Purple Grotto." A typical inter-service fight has broken out inside, which they are there to quell. Stockdale is blissfully walking out down the steps (after his sergeant and a comrade, who is out to do him harm (played by a very young Murray Hamilton, of "Jaws" fame - he was the mayor) have tried to get Stockdale drunk, but with no success. The two MP's ask Stockdale, "Is this the Purple Grotto?" To which he replies "Yes." He then adds, as the MPs are dashing inside, "Now there's two thirsty fellows for ya!" Words can't describe it.

For an old B/W movie, with no nudity scenes and not even a curse word, this production will show everyone what real characterization and movie directing is all about. Six stars in my book.

I have remembered this as one of my favorite films of all time. This is one of the most hilarious movies that Andy Griffith has has ever made. It is funny, sweet, tender, kind, and has all of the good things encountered in the best movies. I highly recommend this film and wish it would come out on DVD.
