If you are willing to accept Buddy Hackett as a Chickasaw Indian replete with feather and scalping knife as part of his navy uniform than you will enjoy All Hands On Deck. Buddy Hackett was one of the funniest men ever put on God's green earth and he adds something to any film he's in.

This ship is commanded by Dennis O'Keefe who just wants to get away for some good fishing. He lives the executive officer Pat Boone in charge and he's got romance on his mind with reporter Barbara Eden.

Seaman Buddy Hackett for Thanksgiving brings a turkey on board and then can't kill it so it becomes a ship's mascot. The bird is named Owasso and he's got a problem on the order of Clyde the Orangutan had with Clint Eastwood in Every Which Way But Loose. A female turkey is found and pretty soon the ship might become a turkey farm.

Pat Boone gets a couple of forgettable songs to sing. Buddy Hackett supplies the comedy and Admiral Gale Gordon starts developing an ulcer in All Hands On Deck.

It's an amusing picture, but no classic.
