I have always enjoyed this film for its humor and human characterizations. Men taken from their homes and jobs and suddenly finding themselves in a new and unfamiliar setting is always cause for confusion and misunderstanding. This film does an excellent effort at showing how men can respond to those challenges. Yet does so with wit and intelligence.

There is no goof section for this movie so I want to tell of two that I noticed. In one scene the crew is exercising weapons practice. On the bridge acting as communications man is Lee Marvin. When the command to drop a depth charge is given the command is received by Lee Marvin as the stern communications man. On the building behind the dock where the ship is berthed appears the sign "We Built for Victory." Obviously a post-war addition.
