Women have to be smarter than men. Fortunately, this is very easy...
14 June 2006 | by p-hallinanSee all my reviews

I saw this old film by accident and was pleasantly charmed - I think it had a lot more going for it than the only other reviewer before me clearly did. The film was obviously a vehicle for the feisty Cicely - she ramped it up no end, showing how very easy it is for one gutsy female to make a whole army of males (including of course her husband) look the fools that all women intuitively know that men are - all this probably before Ms Greer was even born! If you want to consider it in depth (which I advise against) then it could be interesting to consider just how little part any other female played in the film. It may well also have something to say about the innate stupidity of the more arcane rules and regulations of life in any army. But overall, take it for what it is, a light hearted look at life on the distaff side - and you won't be disappointed.
