Let's Go Navy! (1951) **1/2
13 September 2010 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

The Bowery Boys (or at least Slip and Sach, ie: Leo Gorcey and Huntz Hall) get robbed of over $1600 by two men dressed in bogus sailor suits. So the gang figure they can get into the Navy temporarily and recover their cash by searching everyone aboard ship for a revealing tattoo which one of the crooks wore on his chest. Pretty predictable comic mayhem occurs at sea, like the boys having to swab the decks and dishing out slapstick routines to their superiors in the process. It's not a bad entry in this long-running series. Huntz Hall seems to have drank a lot of coffee while shooting this one, as he's really rather charged up. Or maybe by now he's just really full force into his dimwitted Sach characterization. **1/2 out of ****
