Critic Reviews for No Time for Sergeants
The best moments in this service farce are hilarious but it's much too long and the joke wears thin before the finish.
Even today, more than 50 years after No Time for Sergeants was made, the film works as a comedy. Bottom line, it made me laugh.
...a lamentably uneven piece of work that's rarely as compelling as its star's magnetic performance.
Audience Reviews for No Time for Sergeants
Andy Griffith made a career playing country guys who, even if ignorant, always got over on smart-ass city slicker types and it sort of began with this Army tale of a good hearted if dim oaf who befuddles career soldiers. Nick Adams is good as his little buddy with big Army dreams. Myron McCormick maintains exasperation solidly fo the length of the piece.
Silly little comedy walks a fine line between charm and idiocy. What puts it over is the performances and the script full of humourous lines. Myron McCormick is wonderfully flustered as Sgt.King and Andy Griffith plays the simpleton Will Stockdale with just the right amount of innocence so he does't come across as a buffoon just a not very clever, naive but good hearted bumpkin. Nick Adams is also highly enjoyable as Andy frustrated buddy. Don Knotts only has one scene but he steals it.
