Quotes

[first lines]
Sean Cullen: [voiceover] Ah, America. You beacon of composure and proportionate response, you bringer of calm and goodness to the world... What do you do when the war you're fighting just can't possibly be won in any meaningful sense? Well, obviously, you sack the guy not winning it and you bring in some other guy. In 2009, that war was Afghanistan, and that other guy... was Glen.

Great movie by Netflix
26 May 2017 | by (United States of America) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed it a lot! as a veteran I thought it was hilarious. It also did a decent job at showcasing some of the stuff that makes us soldiers tick, for instance all the political hoopla you have to go through. I have never reviewed a movie on here before, but I felt like I definitely had to talk about this one.
