| Contaminated by a lack of good humor.
I liked the kind of idea that WHIFFS had: an Army soldier on a medical discharge who plans to make history since World War I by contaminating a small town only to rob banks. Very strange, indeed! Despite its satiric message on chemical warfare (and to take on M*A*S*H for the time), it didn't contain enough comedy and it simply tries too hard at it. It suffers unrealistically as well. There is some considerably poor acting most of the time, and if you're not deaf, you may hear somebody behind camera making noises on Elliot Gould's gaseous state. The songs were nothing special to bring home Oscar and Golden Globe nominations, either. Much improved humorous detail would've helped this one greatly. A nice shot at making a nifty satire at life after the military, but it left me wanting more. Rent this one and see what you think.
