Critic Reviews of "Sgt. Bilko"VarietyMay 19, 2008
Though Martin and a solid supporting cast produce a few scattered moments of near-hilarity, for the most part the terrain here is as flat as it gets.Chicago ReaderMay 19, 2008
[A] celebration of high jinks.Time OutJune 24, 2006
This is shoddy hackwork, replaying classic scenarios (the honest new recruit, audits by Pentagon bigwigs and manoeuvres in Nevada) with such disregard for narrative structure the reels might be in the wrong order.New York TimesAugust 30, 2004
The film is full of gratifying gags like these, but it also has to strain for newly enlarged scope.San Francisco ChronicleJune 18, 2002
Wacky is just the right tone for a spring comedy.ReelViewsJanuary 01, 2000
This Sgt. Bilko should be court-martialed.TV GuideMay 19, 2008
Martin's Bilko is a career grifter who comes out on top every time. He's a Bilko for the nasty '90s, oily and smug.Film4May 19, 2008
Aside from the sheer insanity of trying to leap into the shoes of the irreplaceable Phil Silvers, surely Martin should have recognized that the film had no script, no gags and no discernible point.eFilmCritic.comSeptember 23, 2007
We've seen it before, almost frame for frame, in every other service comedy, especially Stripes.Reeling ReviewsApril 09, 2005
A big disappointment.Laramie Movie ScopeMarch 27, 2003
There is lots of yelling.Henderson Home News (Henderson, NV)February 19, 2003
CLassic Stevey Martin full of great one-liners.
