Cheap, silly and forgettable.
15 June 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Sea Racketeers" is a very low-budget and silly B-movie from Republic Studios. Considering that it stars Weldon Heyburn and Warren Hymer, you can tell it's not exactly an A picture! The stars are seamen with the US Coast Guard and part of the plot involves their efforts to stop smugglers from sneaking stolen furs into the country. Another involves the guy's dating lives--with Jim romancing a dancing girl as well as a young lady who refers to him as 'Uncle' (now THAT'S weird). The main action consists of the men chasing mobsters on the sea as well as fighting over 'dames'--with lots of singing and dancing tossed in for good measure. Unfortunately, none of it (especially the silly dance numbers*) are particularly good and it's obvious that even for a Republic film, this one is pretty clichéd and silly. It's not exactly terrible...but it sure is close. Bad writing, bad dialog, poor acting and very poor singing don't help.

*The dancing is just stupid. At five minutes into the film, one of the leading ladies dances about with all the grace of a bear on quaaludes. Later, there is an amazingly silly number involving women in swim suits wearing fur coats and cavorting about in the snow--all staged on a ship!
