Storyline

Russ Raymond, America's number one crooner, disappears and joins the Navy under the name Tommy Halstead. Dorothy Roberts, a magazine journalist, is intent on finding out what happened to Russ and she tries everything she can to get a picture of him to prove he's Russ Raymond. Tommy's friends, Pomeroy Watson and Smokey Adams,help him while Pomeroy writes love letters to Patty Andrews. But because Smokey makes Pomeroy lie about himself in the letters, and when Patty comes to the Navy base, she's furious at Pomeroy. When Pomeroy, Smokey, Tommy and the Andrews sisters set sail for Hawaii, Pomeroy discovers there's a tomato in the potato locker, and she's been snapping shots of Tommy the whole trip. Whether Pomeroy's proving that 7 x 13 = 28 - three different ways, having Smokey help him play ship captain for Patty, or falling out of his hammock, it's an Abbott and Costello classic.

The Navy has never been this funny!!
9 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Abbott and Costello are back in another head cracking, side splitting comedy movie! This is another one of their best ones! This is also one of the films that propelled them into the top ten at the box office!

In this film, Abbott and Costello are going out sailing on the blue sea, but bump into a lot of mishaps!

I really liked the fact that Shemp Howard was in this movie, he was very funny! As you all know, he eventually replaced Curly in the Three Stooges!

Abbott and Costello are the best! I have seen nearly all of their movies, I've seen some that I like better than others, but I can't say that I haven't seen one that I hated.

Bravo Abbott and Costello!

10/10
