Francois Truffaut Cahiers du Cinéma The film may give back some confidence to American -- and other -- spectators who are deprived of physical attractiveness by nature. Therein lies the objective of this new comic strategy. May 26, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

Very episodic and enjoyable!! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Martin and Lewis star as a smooth and a whacky sailor always getting into all sorts of trouble. Nice fast pace and good solid rhythm, though this kind of comedy is always more a required taste, and anyone expecting anything that goes beyond the usual little plot should look elsewhere. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews
