Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
A typical World War II morale booster, Private Buckaroo simply has everything. Everything, that is, except a plot. And who needs a plot when you get the sisters Andrews harmonizing two of their greatest hits, "Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree" and "Johnny Get Your Gun Again"? Not to mention the comedy antics of Mary Wickes, Shemp Howard and that quintessential nightclub entertainer Joe E. Lewis, the contortions of the energetic congregation The Jivin' Jacks and Jills, Peggy Ryan and the very young Donald O'~Connor and, best of all, Harry James and his band featuring Helen Forrest and a beautiful rendition of "You Made me Love You." With all this going on -- sometimes all at once! -- you barely have time to notice that the screenwriters actually did drag in a piece of nonsense about self-centered Dick Foran being tamed by Jennifer Holt. The daughter of veteran star Jack Holt and sister of Tim, the latter made her screen debut in this musical and manages to stay well out of the fray.
