Audience Reviews for Skirts Ahoy!

Minor musical that even though its set in the service still manages to get Esther in the water at regular intervals. Debbie Reynolds and Bobby Van pop up for a manic guest number that comes out of nowhere.

I don't really know why I like this movie as much as I do. But then, I like most wartime movies from WW2.
