One of the classic 1960 era comedies with two of Hollywoods great male actors. Cary Grant is terrific as the straight man to Tny Curtis's con-guy approach. Story starts out as a recollection of the history of a WW II submarine that is about to be decommisioned. Curtis is the current captain responsible for taking the sub to disposal. He opens the ship's log and begins reviewing the entries Grant made during the war. As the recollection goes back, Curtis is introduced as a new arriving junior officer assigned to the sub as a result of a strange set of circumstances. During his assignment he goes about his duties more like it's a regular day-to-day job where he's trying to not only milk it for everything he can, but doing such without actually working or being responsible for anything. As a die-in-the-wool con artist, he goes from one scam to another, creating laughs along the way. All the while Grant as his sub commander is looking forward to the day he can unload Curtis from his command. By the end all the movie Curtis's well laid-out plans for a life free of responsibility go south, as he ends up becoming a fine naval officer befitting of a ship command of his own. Look for a good number of future character actors who were more or less unknown then but later went on to series of their own (Gavin from the love boat, etc.). If you enjoy the humor of Curtis you'll love this one as he's at his best as the lovable character who warms your heart and makes you smile.

This is a clever story with great actors in the supporting roles. I recommend it for family viewing to teens and older.

Should be on your list of must see movies if you are over 40. Friends have watched it with their kids in their teens who also loved it. Enjoyable, interesting movie.

Heard about this on NPR and set out to buy a copy. Happy to find it @O.Co. Don't want to spoil the ending, but this is so much fun. A fun and mysterious counterpoint to watching "It's a Wonderful LIfe" yet again. May be a little harse for children, but teens and adults are bound to enjoy this gen from Finland.

NOT for kids OR young teens!!!! over the top funny for adults with a demented sense of humor. My husband and I could not stop laughing. Got him the DVD for Christmas so we can watch after the kids go to bed. Would not let our 12 year old watch it. It is truely hysterical.

See this with your teenage daughter, not all real life, but alot of it is. Shows the real life dilemmas with teen pregnancy and how choices can affect you.

This is a very funny movie that I can watch over and over again. It is not suitable for young children but teens and adults can enjoy the humor and puns.
