YMMV: The Green Berets
  • Harsher in Hindsight: The whole damn thing, but especially the ending.
  • Narm/So Bad, It's Good: The entire film could have this effect on people who've been in The Vietnam War. Gustav Hasford writes in his semi-autobiographical novel The Short-Timers that an audience of Marines was roaring with laughter when they saw the film in Vietnam. Similarly, war journalist John Pilger said about the film: "I had just come back from Vietnam, and I couldn’t believe how absurd this movie was. So I laughed out loud, and I laughed and laughed."
