Blake Edwards directs with his customary wit, breeziness, and acute sense of pacing.
Operation Petticoat has no more weight than a sackful of feathers, but it has a lot of laughs.
Not unpleasant, but the situations (including the inevitable invasion of women aboard the sub) are horribly familiar, and the dialogue none too inspired.
While I think Operation Petticoat has a number of issues - it's too long, overstuffed, and rather buttoned down - I still respect as it a piece of cinematic history.
There's a distinct lack of forward momentum plaguing Operation Petticoat, which takes forever to get going, and even then only moves in fits and starts, plot-wise.
Hasn't aged especially well. Still, on the strength of Grant and co-lead Tony Curtis, Edwards' film remains a diverting enough escape from reality. [Blu-ray]
The gags are bright and Blake Edwards's direction adroit enough to make Operation Petticoat an enjoyable time.
Appealing but thin service comedy.
Without a true plot to speak of, you really watch the film for the comic set ups that all have fairly quick payoffs.
With shining, contarsting turns from Cary Grant and Tony Curtis, Blake Edwards's slick and funny military comedy was one of 1959's most popular films and one of Grant's biggest commercial hits in a long and brilliant career.
A n ice pairing of the talents of Cary Grant and Tony Curtis
Splendid, if a little long, service comedy from Edwards.
The plot of this movie is pretty silly obviously, and the movie is goofy and funny some of the time, but overall it's not that good.
A lot of good shtick.
Another enjoyable WWII comedy from Cary Grant, and Tony Curtis provides some able support as a hustler who turns his now bright pink submarine into a refugee camp for the inevitable romantic interest. Formulaic but fun.
if i'm not mistaken this film was made shortly after mr. curtis' stint as cary's tongue-in-cheek doppelganger in "some like in hot", so this should've been a hoot if only to see if any sparks fly between the two...but it doesn't. too bad, but still a fun film
