A Fast Moving Extremely Funny Enjoyable Movie,
28 May 2001 | by (Milwaukee,Wis.) – See all my reviews

The love affair between Pat Boone as Lieutenant Donald and Barbara Eden as Sally Hobson makes up the basic story line in this fun movie. Buddy Hacket or is it "hatchet" as Garfield acts as a crazy (and I do mean crazy) indian to add the comedy. The fast moving plot includes the antics of Garfield and a pet turkey which they are trying to hide from Lieutenant Donalds superiors. The main plot, the love affair and attempts to smuggle Sally Hobson on board with the ensuing coverup and confusion make for an extremely funny movie. Barbara Eden's excellant acting and Pat Boones singing and acting are prime ingredients in this very fine enjoyable production.
