Storyline

This military service comedy chronicles the misadventures of the U.S.S. Bustard in Japan. The crew has stolen a Buddha statue from a Japanese village, which if discovered missing would threaten Japanese/American relations. Doc Willoughby is the ship's petty officer, whose antics are constantly getting him into trouble with his captain. On shore leave, Willoughby falls for a seemingly demure Japanese girl in a kimono shop, who actually turns out to be a Japanese/American nurse in the US Navy, Lt. Tomiko Momoyama. However, it turns out she was betrothed as a child to a traditional Japanese man named Toshi, who fully intends on enforcing tradition. Willoughby divides his time between trying to return the Buddha statue back to the Japanese village it rightfully belongs to, and trying to woo Tomiko from the traditional Japanese man she rightfully belongs to. Written by Anonymous

Nobody's Perfect
25 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoy watching war comedies, and I thought that this was an excellent movie just for watching. It was comical and enjoyable to watch Doug McClure and Nancy Kwan in this light hearted comedy. If I can ever find this movie I will buy it. One of my favorite scenes was when McClure when to the hospital looking for Nancy Kwan and the Head Nurse at the desk made a pass at Doug McClure, the other scene was when they when to the shop looking for a present for Harman's sister. the little jokes about the Marines and Navy in the bar room brawl were great. There were also the non spoken parts that took place in the background, for instance, when McClure, Hartman, left the ship to look for a way to get rid of the bugs. If you look at the background you would see the Japanese women trying to pick up on the Military guys on leave.
