Retired Lieutenant Commander Quinton McHale spends his days puttering around the Caribbean in the old PT-73 selling homebrew, ice cream, and swimsuit calendars. He's brought out of retirement when his old nemesis turned the second best terrorist in the world, Major Vladikov, takes over the island of San Moreno and starts building a nuclear launch silo on it. With help from his old crew and hindrances from Captain Wallace B. Binghampton, who sank a cruise liner a while back, McHale tries to put Vladikov out of business. Written by

In the Medal Ceremony at the end of the movie, Lt. Penelope Carpenter uniform is incorrect, in fact, does not exist in its shown form. She would be wearing a dress shirt with a black tie with full sided decorations See more »
Another rehash of vintage American television. (Some of it aged like fine Baron Philippe de Rothschild wine; however, most have turned to vinegar.) The humor, has become overtly anachronistic. This time around, MCHALE'S NAVY is in a late 1990's setting, with Tom Arnold at the helm. (He also co-produced). My first question was, why make the remake? The original series was amusing, but really not a landmark series. (I've seen a reel of out takes from the old series, which were hysterically funny, but in no way, shape or form would've made it on the air).
The only possible answer I could come up with, was trying to cash in on baby boomer sentiments. Well, it would seem the boomers are not quite THAT sentimental.
In a nutshell, this overlong, boring and painfully unfunny movie, was a waste of time for everyone on both sides of the screen. Tom Arnold has some genuine ability, and he was quite good in TRUE LIES. Why he has chosen some really, I mean excruciatingly bad, movie roles is beyond the scope of human imagination.
MCHALE'S NAVY should be avoided at all costs.
