Certainly an "adult fairy tale", as it has been billed, and not a "fairy tale for adults". The latter would take a fantastical story, digestible by children, and deepen it with added complexity in its characters and relationships. The former is content to stick with the cloying and cartoonish, but throws in fish dong and vigorous masturbation for good measure.
Mawkish in many stretches but... give 'em a break, the war was JUST over. Come for the commitment to in-camera freeze frame, stay for the giant practical eyelid. The courtroom scene is pretty great as the guise of principled ethical debate slips away and both sides dig their heels into patriotic exceptionalism (even if they quickly put aside their differences once they decide that the real matter of life and death............. was love).
