This film had a great cast. You get to see a lot of people who were also in Animal House. Actually it was kind of like Animal House, but with war. Sorry to say that the story was really bad though and the movie wasn't as funny as I would like to see. It was directed by Steven Spielberg, so you get to see a lot of action and damage. So the action plus the fun to watch characters is what made this movie ok since it was so bad other wise. Now out of all the characters, there were two that really made me laugh. First was Dan Aykroyd. He didn't have the biggest part and in the beginning he was not too amusing. Later though he gets hit in the head and gets crazy. That is what made me laugh. Then you have John Belushi. His character was funny no matter what he was doing. So overall again, it was just an ok movie. I wish there was a little more comedy or a little more story and maybe I would of liked it more than I did.
