Peter Farrelly’s disappointing follow-up to Green Book suggests that he has found his formula – blue-collar bigot goes on a journey, has his eyes opened and his preconceptions challenged – and he’s sticking to it. Here, the central character is Chickie (Zac Efron), of beer-swilling Irish-American stock. A sailor by trade but a wastrel by nature, Chickie props up the bar, while friends and neighbours ship out to Vietnam. Chickie wants to show his appreciation for the soldiers in a war he never thinks to question, so decides to deliver beer to the boys, in this crass and manipulative warsploitation picture.
