Hilarious movie!!
24 October 2006 | by shaye47See all my reviews

I laugh till I cry every time I watch this movie. I know what is going to happen, but it still cracks me up! Buddy Hackett is one comedian that I never get tired of watching. He has a wonderful way with surprise actions. The battles of the world should be as well thought out as this movie. It does rival "Operation Petticoat" and Jerry Lewis' "Sailors Beware" for slapstick and clean humor. Jerry and Buddy, in my opinion, are two of the top Kings of movie slapstick since Vaudeville and talkies first came in vogue. Buster Keaton and Jimmy Durante were good, but Buddy does it in this movie by being open and honest with his viewing public. I do not know when I have enjoyed a movie so very, very much.
