Rating: 2/5 -- Hail the Conquering Hero is widely praised as one of Preston Sturges' best films, but I found it tedious and mawkish - the 1944 equivalent of a dopey sitcom. Full Review

Rating: A -- moves beyond slapstick as it's skillfully and energetically put together to tell much about Americana. Full Review

It is a bewilderingly skillful picture, and the skill is used no more brilliantly to tell the story than to cover up the story's weaknesses and those of its author, Preston Sturges. Full Review
