A plane carrying a weapon more dangerous than a nuclear weapon goes down near Greece. To prevent panic, the officials go in dressed as tourists (who are dressed so casually that the pilots assume that they are all gay). The pilots are not to make themselves known and can't contact the rescue team. The secrecy causes a comedy of errors including the desolate Greek Isle deciding that since tourists have now arrived, they have to become touristy. Written by

Inspired by an actual incident on January 17, 1966, when a B-52 strategic bomber collided with an aerial refueling plane over Spain, resulting in the temporary loss of 4 nuclear bombs on or near the Spanish island of Palomares. See more »
Try finding this one in a pinch...on the other hand, you may not want to! Two atom bombs are lost in the Aegean Sea, and an unconventional search team (American agents disguised as flashy tourists) sails to a remote Greek island to retrieve them. A wildly uneven film which is never sure what tone it is trying to set. Pity cast members Candice Bergen and Tom Courtenay, who have virtually no characters to play. Leonard Maltin writes in his review there's a great deal of homosexual overtones; true, the men are mostly bare-chested--and a male pilot and a navigator from NATO spend a great deal of time in their BVDs--but there's no sex (it's another end-of-the-world parody). The movie has an unusual look, and Candy Bergen, flirty with a bronze tan and white-blonde hair, is beautiful in her mod attire. Otherwise, pretty silly. *1/2 from ****
