The Question:

In the movie Saving Private Ryan, they used the pharse "fubar." Can you please tell me what it means?

The Answer:

FUBAR is a colorful acronym, probably of military origin, standing for "Fouled Up Beyond All Recognition." "Fouled" may also be replaced by something less family-friendly.

A similar term, also of military origin, is "SNAFU"—""Situation Normal, All Fouled Up" . . . or words to that effect.
