This madcap farce features Durante and Silvers as a pair of vacuum cleaner salesmen eager to make a fast buck. They go to the local Army recruiting station in hopes of making a sale, but inadvertently end up as inductees. The two buck privates need more than Uncle Sam to stop their zany

antics, as Durante and Silvers become well acquainted with the guardhouse as a result of various schemes. The film ends as Durante and Silvers, now old men engaged in a game of chess, discuss the good old days in the Army. Sitting on a nearby piano are two grandchildren, also played by Durante and

Silvers. The slapstick flies thick and furious throughout this comic spree, and consequently the gags don't always work. There are enough amusing episodes to keep this one entertaining, though, as the two comic actors make a nice duo. There's also a big production number, "I'm Glad My Number Was

Called." One of many films designed to relieve a war-minded America from its troubles, YOU'RE IN THE ARMY NOW was released only days before the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
