365 Movies: Buck Privates Review

Buck Privates stars Bud Abbott, Lou Costello, Lee Bowman, and Alan Curtis in this 1941 comedy. Trying to escape from a cop, Slicker(Abbott) and Herbie(Costello) accidentally enlist in the army instead. Through the army, they meet a slew of crazy characters, such as playboy Randolph(Bowman) and tough guy, Bob(Curtis). Also there is the cop(Nat Pendleton), they were trying to avoid, but aren't having much luck with that. It's super fun and many moments of hilarity. Lou Costello was so so so so so funny! His style of comedy is very much like Curly from The Three Stooges, but with his own little twist to it. Speaking of The Three Stooges, for a very brief moment, Shemp appears as a Chef, which I totally loved seeing. I really am so excited to see more Abbott and Costello, they are a riot of fun! I might also like to add, that I totally adored seeing Lee and Alan as rivals in the film. They were fantastic!
