Storyline

Story of a Navy ship with a captain obsessed with catching a fish, a singing executive officer wanting to get married, and an Indian with a turkey as a pet. A few laughs with Pat Boone as the hopeful suitor, Barbara Eden as his girl, and Buddy Hackett assigned to Boone to stay out of the captain`s way. Certainly not a Mister Rogers competitor!

Buddy Hackett & others make this an hilarious show!
26 November 2001 | by (Casper, Wyoming, USA) – See all my reviews

Having already read "Warm Bodies", I was prepared to find "All Hands on Deck" a funny movie. But, with the likes of Gale Gordon, Buddy Hackett, Dennis O'Keefe, Barbara Eden, and Pat Boone, I found it hilarious, with Buddy Hackett stealing the show! He makes a good Oklahoma Indian sailor and shows there is more to the Navy than goofy regulations and spit and polish. It is a very good general audience film, but it helps if you are (or were) an LST sailor.
