Buck Privates -- The first of many vehicles starring the comedy team of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello has the boys mistakenly enlisting in the Army where they make a shambles of basic training but wind up leading their unit to victory during field maneuvers. Director Arthur Lubin strings together a series of gags involving several of the team's familiar flim-flam routines, little-guy Lou's talent for slapstick and a tame romantic subplot with the Andrew Sisters belting out "The Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B." It's a dated period piece, but that's part of its pleasure and the gags still draw smiles, especially from youngsters. (A-I)1941
