Unrealistic, overly silly and at times quite messy, Ronald Shiner does seem to know what he is doing at least, and the vitality that he gives to his character, plus some amusing amounts, are enough to bring this British comedy, about rivalry between navy officers, up to scratch. There is little in the way of character development, and in fact most of the supporting characters are indistinguishable from the next. Some of the happenings are hard to digest, they are so silly, and there are few impressive features in the film. However, as just light entertainment, it works fairly well: not a laugh-out-loud film, but certainly one with a fair share of amusing moments.
