A lot like the B movies of old. No huge stars, no Oscar-caliber anything, but diverting and entertaining.

All apologies to the handful of Americans who've waited decades for this big-screen update of the '60s sitcom--the result is both awful and awfully irrelevant.

A ham-fisted, fitfully amusing lark that quickly runs aground.

This shotgun marriage of coarse laughs and low-rent action cliches is, of course, utterly predictable: Cutting-edge comedy isn't lurking under the corpses of old TV shows.

Tom Arnold is no Ernest Borgnine. A profound statement.

[Trots] out the same tired cliches -- unorthodox heroes, inept commanding officers, officious little weasels getting trampled by the zany crew -- which haven't been funny since...well, ever.

How to turn a so-so series into a witless movie. Earns a half-star for Bruce Campbell.

By the end, this soporific comedy makes 105 minutes feel more like a two-year hitch.

This McHale's Navy would never have floated as programming ballast on a bad night of network TV.

The problem is that when the jokes are as flat as two-day old Coke, your mind has time to think about all the plot incongruities too.

A useless movie. Not funny, suspenseful, moving or even offensive enough to want to torpedo. Just devoid of any conceivable value.
