A.V. Club - 01/04/2012
"[T]here are flashes of classic Keaton here and there, as our man trudges forlornly through the European mud..."

Description by OLDIES.com:

World War I is underway and young men are eager to enlist. Elmer J. Stuyvesant (Buster Keaton), a rich man about town, has no such plans, but one day while looking for a new chauffeur he accidentally enlists in the Army. The uniform appeals to a young lady he's been eyeing, so he decides to tough it out.

In his second "talkie" the immortal Buster Keaton displays his comic genius in full regalia. The addition of his deep, rich voice only serves to make his numerous pratfalls and outrageous mishaps all the funnier. Classic gags and slapstick shenanigans highlight Elmer's tour of duty as he strives to be a hero to his country and win the heart of the girl he loves.

Product Description:

A wealthy man accidentally enlists as a World War I army recruit and ineptly wades through basic training. If you're going to skip a Keaton film, this would be the one to miss.
