    Desperately underrated. A very thorough look into the state of the various armed forces in the early half of the 1970's. Nicholson's performance is a bit over the top, but is tempered with the excellent Otis Young that sets the standard for future similar films. Gilda Radner's cameo is a welcome surprise. 5 years 8 months ago

    Jack Nicholson is his usual best self. The emotional ups and downs in this movie really had me guessing to the end. 5 years 8 months ago

    Jack Nicholson escorts a fellow sailor cross-country to jail in Hal Ashby's engaging bittersweet comedy road-trip. 8/10.
