it's funny especially considering when it was made. My dad loved the original and liked this one. it's funny especially with the interactions between the main characters. McHale and the sailors are funny.

When a comedy is this bad an hour and a half feels like forever.

A campy, dumb mess, McHale's Navy is yet another failed attempt to bring a '60s television show to the big screen. When the world's second greatest terrorist sets up a base on a remote Caribbean island the US Navy recalls retired Lieutenant Commander Quinton McHale and has him put together a special ops team to investigate. The cast is packed with great comedic talent, including Tom Arnold, Dean Stockwell, Debra Messing, Tim Curry, and Bruce Campbell, but the performances are universally awful. The writing is also quite terrible; as all the jokes fall flat and the plot is incredible convoluted. McHale's Navy is an out-of-control goofball comedy that doesn't know when to let up.

Amusing. Not overly familiar with the original series. Close to slapstick.

Really? Who honestly let this movie be made? A pathetic comedy movie that fails to make you laugh. The cast does a bad job and the script is really bad. This whole movie is terrible.
Grade: F

Did any of these critics get the fact that the movie is NOT a recreation of the show, but fast forward 35 YEARS into the future and that Tom Arnold's part is NOT SUPPOSED TO BE THE OLD MCHALE. We loved the characters. It was a silly COMEDY in line with Captain Ron, Overboard, Adams Family, etc. Again, not a recreation of the old show. DUH.

I thought it was funny

This is a pointless exercise, lacking laughs, tension, pathos, rudeness or any possible worth.

Fun time. Tim Curry is marvelous!

Of course it wasn't as funny as the series, but I found some fun spots in movie! It wasn't the "boat that sank" description that everyone is giving it. Not by a long shot.

Mediocre throughout... Not bad, not good. Tom Arnold is no McHale, but his supporting players offer a couple laughs.

I've always thought this was underrated as a film, it's a nice little comedy adventure
