When Corinne Calvet shows disdain for the advances of the sailors in the nightclub, the manager mentions that she was enamored with the club's former crooner who sang "Moonlight Becomes You," and suggests that Dean Martin's character's singing style might be a successful substitute. "Moonlight Becomes You" was a Bing Crosby standard, and Martin consciously tried to imitate Crosby early in his career. See more »
In the beginning of the movie, the Recruiting Officer addresses Chief Lardoski as "Petty Officer". A Chief Petty Officer is never addressed as "Petty Officer". The Recruiting Officer should have addressed him as "Chief Lardoski". See more »
56/100. This is one of the better films in the Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis pairings, but that's not saying much. If you can stomach Jerry Lewis' brand of humor you will likely love this. As for me, it was difficult to sit through the silliness. I find Jerry Lewis so irritating, and he seems to think he is so funny visually through body movements, but he sure could take some lessons from Charlie Chaplin. I guess since I am not French I am missing something here. It is at times quite funny, but usually when Jerry Lewis isn't involved, Dean Martin sings some good songs and does a competent job. His whiny voice is nerve wracking. Robert Strauss is good in a supporting role.
