Goofs

The C-47 transport that Parker arrives in has red stripes through the white bars on the US national insignia, which were not added until 1948, 3 years after the end of World War II. (Other aircraft on the same airfield have the correct national insignia for late World War II.) See more »

McHale's Navy with no McHale ...
11 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The title of the comment about says it all. Even though there is a good comedic cast in this movie and some amusing moments, I think they were a bit desperate to try to sell this without Ernest Borgnine being in it.

On the other hand, you do get to see Tim Conway, and early looks at Gavin MacLeod and Bob Hoskins. Sadly, although he was in a lot of TV and film I watched in the 60s, I just never could warm up to Joe Flynn's single character persona. Of course, he was always the foil, so you weren't meeant to warm up to him. Still, other notable character foils managed to do so without being quite as irritating. (Ted Baxter in Mary Tyler Moore, or Richard Deacon in The Dick Van Dyke Show, as examples).
