Another wacky Navy comedy in the same vein as the television series "McHale's Navy." The film begins during WW II aboard the USS Bustard,
a submarine rescue vehicle. McClure and his fellow sailors steal a smiling Buddha from the local population and hide it in a cave. Years later when the
ship returns to Japan, McClure attempts to return the object. The funniest scene involves cockroaches being dumped into the captain's cabin so that McClure can go ashore on the pretext of getting exterminating supplies. Otherwise, the film's story line and comic situations are all too familiar.
