The Stooges join the Navy to see the world and meet women but they end up being nothing more than tailors. Curly puts on an Admiral's outfit and goes to a party where he and the boys get kidnapped by spies and forced to steal a submarine. This is pretty average stuff for the Stooges but we still get several gags that work well. I think the second half of the film is where the majority of the laughs are as the stuff inside the sub is pretty funny. The shots of the sub are incredibly fake looking but this helps the laughs as the thing is constantly jumping in and out of the water like you'd expect a fish to do. We also get a funny chase sequence inside the sub as the guys chase the spies in a small circle only to end with the violence we like. The first portion of the movie isn't too bad, although we get many familiar jokes including the boys trying to iron but burning holes through the clothes. The scene with Curly wearing the uniform and torturing Moe and Larry in jail was pretty funny as well.
