Movie Reviews

This is a good family movie
David J. | Boise, ID | 02/02/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"So many movies from this time frame are just out of step with modern expectations of entertainment. This one is not. It could be re-released and still find a good audience. If you're looking for a good clean movie that tickles the funny bone of parents AND children this is a good choice."
The Wackiest Ship in the Army

(4 out of 5 stars)

"I rented this the other day with the full intention of sitting through a rather cheesy comedy from the early 1960s. That is to say, I wasn't expecting much. Jack Lemmon is always a worthwhile watch, and he plays his captain well. And Rick Nelson does a surprisingly effective job of acting, with subtle glances and gestures. Ever the quiet and polite junior officer, you root for the kid with the heart of gold. It is a humorous and entertaining film, with just the right amount of slapstick without becoming too silly, despite the film's title. And there's a bonus...Rick sings in his usual dreamy style. It's good fun for the whole family. Even today."
Great Story!

"I must admit that this wasn't the totally hilarious film I expected(most of the humor is contained in the first half of the film), but I found it a good story anyway. I like drama and action, especially in war movies, and this film has both. The story is engrossing, and it has some twists and surprises. I highly recommend it to any war movie fans!"
A Family Favorite!

"This movie is one that everyone in our family loves to watch! From Dad down to baby, we all find something to enjoy in this movie. Real life isn't all drama or comedy, but a mixture of both, and this movie blends both in an entertaining way. I just wish it was out in DVD!!"
