Based on a true story, "Arms & the Dudes" follows two friends in their early 20s (Hill and Teller) living in Miami during the Iraq War who exploit a little-known government initiative that allows small businesses to bid on U.S. Military contracts.  Starting small, they begin raking in big money and are living the high life. But the pair gets in over their heads when they land a $300 million deal to arm the Afghan Military—a deal that puts them in business with some very shady people, not the least of which turns out to be the U.S. Government.

English I can do these movies. Miles Teller is slowly but surely building his career and Jonah Hill is already a star on the comedy scene and here he more or less pulls the whole film off. I find movies based on real events that happened recently far more appealing than movies based on reality from the distant past. The humour goes slightly sideways, I laughed the most at Hill's odd laugh, but the film keeps a decent pace, something is constantly happening, trouble is afoot and it ends dramatically. In truth, I was even slightly envious. A good and entertaining film. 80%. ()

English I am no longer surprised that Todd Phillips made Joker in the style of a Scorsese film, because he already has a similar take on War Dogs, and I have no problem imagining Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci playing the leads instead of Miles Teller and Jonah Hill in some other universe. It’s a fine film. Nothing groundbreaking, but fine. ()

English Jonah Hill is pretty fat in this one, but he's also pretty good. Miles isn't bad, but Jonah stands out. The story is interesting, among other things, because it actually happened. But it also shows what is possible in today's world. The question arises: is it even worth wanting so much money at any cost, or would simply being a masseur be enough? ()

English This film was a nice surprise. I was expecting some sort of a slog which would end with a disgustingly melodramatic scene. Thankfully, it failed to deliver in this regard. I’m still shaking my head in disbelief at such a rare phenomenon. The film confirmed two well-established facts. Wars are fought for money, and secret service agents wouldn’t find anything even if it was staring them in the face. I was entertained throughout. ()

English Pleasant one-off. Too politically correct and a bit simplistic, but as a sequence of funny scenes with the great acting tandem of Miles Teller and Jonah Hill, it's fine. If you don't see it, you're not missing out on anything groundbreaking, but as light entertainment that so peripherally winks at the absurdities of war conflicts, the fact that it's money laundering, and shows the "beauty" of Albania (and the fact that there are good businessmen there too), it's OK.
