      Movie Info

      Lieutenant Commander Matt Sherman (Cary Grant) is in charge of the submarine "Sea Tiger," which was badly damaged at a Philippine shipyard by a Japanese air raid. Seeking to make sail before an oncoming invasion, Sherman enlists the help of newly transferred Lieutenant Nick Holden (Tony Curtis) to use his talents as a con artist to procure the needed supplies. Once they're underway, Sherman evacuates a group of beautiful nurses, but can't find anyone who will take them off his hands.

      • Feb 23, 2016

        The film is carried by the double-act of Curtis and Grant, and they do a fine job.

        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.

        Let's be honest, high-brow, sophisticated humor it ain't. But if you're craving some good, clean, old-fashioned fun with Cary Grant, Tony Curtis, a pink submarine, and a few army nurses with large breasts, this is your best bet.
