This is by far the worst Steven Spielberg movie ever. There’s a lot going on, yes, but at the same time there is nothing happening at all (that makes any sense).

It’s a comedy without jokes. Not even the slapstick scenes make you smile (and there’s an overdose of them). All actors seem to be on drugs. They blurt out lines that make no sense at all and they all run around like chickens without a head. It’s very racist as well. There’s a difference between calling out Nazi’s (as opposed to Germans) and calling out Japs (as in general: all Japanese). It’s like someone at Universal thought: we’ll give Spielberg so much money to waste on a comedy that he will never ask us for money again.

To avoid at all costs (unless you really want to see all of Spielberg’s movies).
