The Five Crazy Boys (original title Les Bidasses en folie, "The Sadsacks are Mad"; another English release title is Rookies Run Amok) is a 1971 French comedy directed by Claude Zidi and starring a popular French comedy group (a quintet at that time) Les Charlots as five musicians who pass through various adventures both in music, love and at last military service when they are summoned to army. The film was followed by a direct sequel Sadsacks Go to War (Les Bidasses s'en vont en guerre) (1974). Note: the 1983 Les Charlots movie Le Retour des bidasses en folie ("The Return of the Mad Sadsacks") isn't a sequel contrary to its title.
