Movie Info

Director Leo McCarey was clearly past his prime when he made this screen version of Max Shulman's comic novel Rally 'Round the Flag, Boys; still, the film was a success, no small thanks to the star power of real-life husband and wife Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward. The scene is Putnam's Landing, Connecticut, where commuter Harry Bannerman (Paul Newman) is driven crazy by his wife Grace's (Joanne Woodward) insistence upon joining every civic committee known to man.

Some of the gags are elaborate and as carefully timed as a dance sequence.

Rally Round the Flag, Boys! is no epic. But it's good for laughs.

It backfires grandly.

Satire on activist suburbanites is so weak, it only seems funny because it has nothing to say.

Paul Newman's first comedy is a disappointing small-town film, directed by Leo McCarey at the end of his career, lacking energy and wit.

Newman's first comedy should have been his last. Gratuitous and dubious sexuality makes this a poor bet for youngsters.

A lame and insipid attempt to satirize suburban life, gender roles, teenage sexuality, and the military.

Newman e Woodward parecem estar se divertindo a valer, mas o ingênuo roteiro não permitiu que o filme envelhecesse bem
