*NominalHero: Kelly and his crew are motivated purely by opportunistic self-interest, and participate in the events of the film only for a chance to line their pockets. While they don't do anything particularly evil, they also exhibit nothing resembling selfless heroic behavior, either. Thus they are either "hero in name only" or a bunch of {{Villain Protagonist}}s.

* AnachronismStew: In a movie set during World War 2, Donald Sutherland is pretty much playing a stereotypical hippie.

''Kelly's Heroes'' is a 1970 comedy/war movie made by MGM. It stars Creator/ClintEastwood, Telly Savalas, Creator/DonRickles, Creator/DonaldSutherland, and Carroll O'Connor. It's about a squad of American soldiers in WorldWarTwo France who learn about a secret stash of [[NaziGold German gold]] in a bank deep behind enemy lines. Unappreciated by their [[TheNeidermeyer clueless, profiteering captain]] and continually denied any chance at decent R&R, they are ripe for the promise of heroic adventure and enthusiastically embark on their new, unauthorized mission. With the help of tank commander Oddball and his squad of misfits, an incompetent artillery officer, a greedy supply officer, a marching band, and a grave digger battalion, they stand to make a fortune.
