Reception[edit]

Critical response[edit]

TV Guide gives Going Under 2 stars out of 5 stars.[10] In Hal Erickson's book Military Comedy Films: A Critical Survey and Filmography of Hollywood Releases Since 1918, he writes: "Unlike A Man Called Sarge, Going Under actually indicates that some thought and money went into its preparation. While the production values are not lavish, they are at least up to 1990s theatrical feature standards."[1]

Release[edit]

Although never released in theaters, Going Under was released on VHS on August 23, 1991.[1] The film can be streamed online by Amazon Video via Warner Home Video.[11]
