Storyline

Three Israeli friends - Bobby, Benji and Hughie - joined the mandatory army drafted, but they're not quite ready to give up the freedom they've enjoyed for so long and submit to army discipline. They spend most of their time chasing women, trying to get out of doing any work, and avoiding their no-nonsense sergeant. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Not as good as the first three but does have some funny moments
13 November 2007 | by gangstahippieSee all my reviews

Rated R for Language and Sexual Content including nudity.

Private Popsicle is the fourth film in the Isreali Lemon Popsicle series.You can find all four plus the first twenty minutes of the fifth one on youtube.This film is a bit different from the first three.The first three films were basically teen sex comedy/drama's set in the 50's or 60's.Private Popsicle has the three friends joining the army.The first three are great films because they mix both comedy and drama.The fourth film however has very little drama in it and is mostly a slapstick comedy a lot like the film Stripes only not as good.There are a few funny moments in the film but overall, this entry in the series is not as good as the first three.Its still a decent comedy though.
