Storyline

With posters featuring a stylized-drawing of Eva Six in a bikini, a tagline reading..."Temptation in Paradise...neither hell nor high heels could stop them", and a Dream Sequence Technical Adviser credit for Bob Marcucci, American-International once again proved it had no peers when it came to sleight-of-hand advertising selling a war-movie when war movies weren't selling. This one starts in the Pacific in 1943 when an American submarine staffed by the likes of Scott Brady, Jim Backus and Michael Dante (the old guns to get the old folks in) has a rendezvous with a cruiser to pick up an underwater demolition team comprised of the likes of Tab Hunter, Frankie Avalon, Gary Crosby and Jody McCrea (the young turks to get the kids in, which probably only worked in Southern California), and there is conflict right off as the sub crew feels like they are being denied a chance to revenge the sinking of a sister sub because they have to deliver Tab and Frankie to an island on a super-secret ...

999 monkeys make a movie.
29 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

new words need to be invented to adequately describe just how bad this film is. to call it stupid is a compliment. i just watched this on turner classic movies. my god what an embarrassment, the most profound sentiment it raised in me was to hope that all involved with making it were severely beaten afterward. i was rooting for the japs. i'm having trouble filling ten lines of text for this review because lets face it how many different ways can you say horrible? three more lines to go. this movie is terrible, this movie is an insult to ed wood, this movie should be burned and every participant still alive should be hunted down like simon wiesenthal on a nazi then have their DNA eradicated from the gene pool. stick a sharp pencil in your eye before watching this horrid crapulence
