If you remember this movie from childhood, it might have been from watching it on television. The DVD version is so incredibly clear that I felt like I was in the front row of a theater watching actors in a play.
It is a fun story of a timid man (the incredible Don Knotts), who wants more than anything to be a fish - he feels fish are excellent in every way and imagines that he would fit in very well under the water. In a magical event, he gets his wish, and it turns out that he is no kind of a timid fish! As a fish, he has a special ability that turns out to be a benefit to the US Navy. He finds out that he can help the US in the water in a way he could never do as a mere human. He even manages to find a special Ladyfish.
This is a fun, family film that will bring back memories for many of us who grew up on Don Knotts comedies, and Andy Griffith re-runs!
