James Cagney is simply great as the captain of the ship.
Emanuel Levy

Based on the stage hit, Fonda's most popular war movie casts him as the action-driven first officer of the Reluctant, a cargo ship miles away from the battle zone whose route is described by him as "from tedium to apathy" and back again.

Mister Roberts is a movie dedicated to anyone with a boring dead end job who wants to be a hero and has to decide whether to live honorably anyway.

The success of the uninspired movie is a testament to star performances from the talented cast rather than to the film's directors.
