The unintentional comedy scale readings are off the charts on this one. Sure, the first 18 seconds feature the same old bland commander setting up his unit to scream, “Go Army, Beat Navy!” But if you have the stomach to press through, you are richly rewarded with pure comedy gold.
First, you have the Iraqi Col. Ali, who clearly has no idea what these soldiers are asking him to say, “Go Army, Beat Navy!” And just when you think the fun is over, Jim from “American Pie” comes out of nowhere with an enthusiastic cheer. Congrats, Jason Biggs. This is probably the best bit you have put on film since you stuck your member through a pastry.
