Poll: What Is Your Favorite War or Military Comedy?

While we all know that war is really not funny, it hasn’t prevented filmmakers and writers from creating comedies or comedic dramas set in a war or in the military. In fact some of these films dramatize certain aspects of war generally not shown in war films. And also, in fact, if used right, the comedy actually intensifies the serious dramatic parts of the war film. Which one of these war comedies is your favorite? No tv shows! Movies only. If you want to talk about this list, report for duty here. (We will draft anybody). Note: This was inspired by ElMaruecan’s list Word War Two live poll.
