Contains Very Weak Shorts.
(2 out of 5 stars)
"I am a very big stooge fan. Therefore, I have seen every short, especially the Curly ones. The shorts contained in this collection are:1) Boobs In Arms (1940)
2) Back From The Front (1943)
3) G.I. Wanna Home (1946)
4) Wee Wee Monsieur (1938)
5) No Dough Boys (1944)
6) Dizzy Pilots (1943)In my opinion, "Back From The Front", "Wee Wee Monsieur", and "No Dough Boys" are weak shorts. And another thing, when you see the cover of this DVD, you will notice a typo. The title is "G.I. Wanna Home", NOT "G.I. Wanna Go Home". There is no "Go" in the title. That is such a common error. I don't understand why it is that diificult to get a simple title right."
Ok all you naysayers!

"Alright it's clear columbia hasn't put the time and effort into these DVDs that they should. But why on Earth are you people so mad!!?! I am a young stooge fan myself (only 19), and quite frankly any chance for me to own the shorts is hapily accepted. Would you rather have nothing at all? I didn't think so... The point is the shorts on these DVDs are still just as funny as they were the first time I saw them, and nothing will change that. I am mad at Columbia for not putting a better effort into it, SURE!! But it's better then having to rely on AMC to watch them isn't it??"
Not As Bad As Everyone Says It Is...

"I agree with what many people have said that Columbia Pictures could be handling the Stooges DVD releases better than they have been recently. Someone hit the nail on the head with the suggestion that Columbia should release the shorts in some sort of order (chronological, by films featuring the "Third Stooge", etc) instead of releasing them with a running "theme". In my opinion, the overall quality of "G.I. Stooge" is not as bad as people have said, although I do agree that Columbia should be taking more care and paying more attention to the quality on future releases. Some of my all-time favorite shorts are on this disc, including the seldom-seen "No Dough Boys"; while this film doesn't rank amongst their best, it still has much of the Stooges' sardonic humor, particularly in their portrayal here of Japanese soliders. Moe is VERY convincing in this role, both in appearance and dialect; rather unheard of for a film to be released while the country was at war with Japan at the time! While I'm a big fan of the older shorts featuring Curly, I agree with everyone who commented that Columbia should also release more (but preferably all) of the films featuring Shemp and especially Joe Besser. To many, Besser may not have been very "Stooge-like", but that doesn't mean he wasn't funny; some of my favorite Stooge episodes are with Besser. I think he more than deserves a fair shake!I enjoyed this DVD, as I'm sure many Stooge fans will! It also wouldn't hurt for every Stooge fan to tell Columbia Pictures what you think and what you want to see in the future; there's always strength in numbers, and persistence DOES pay off. If they receive enough comments/complaints, they'll get the message."
Columbia Is Becoming Very Lazy!

"Ok, a new 3 stooges DVD from Columbia. All shorts in this collection are Curly. NO Shemp in this collection. First off, all 6 shorts on this DVD fit the theme "G.I. Stooge" perfectly. But it is funny how Columbia chose to put the shorts `Boobs In Arms' and `Dizzy Pilots' on the same DVD, considering that they both contain the same army footage. They should have just used `Boobs In Arms', since that was made first, and replace `Dizzy Pilots' with another G.I. short like `Half-Shot Shooters'. And one more thing. A common error has occurred and Columbia seems to have used it. Look at the cover of this DVD. Do you see a short called `G.I. Wanna Go Home'? Well that is wrong. The correct title is `G.I. Wanna Home'. It's funny. When Columbia released this title on VHS, they had it correct. Why on earth would they choose to make this error on a DVD cover? I know. It's laziness. Columbia has got to wake up."
