Reviews

The New York Times - Stephen Holden
Leaky PT boat of a comedy, descended from the television series.

Variety - Leonard Klady
Time and adapters have not been kind to the fun-loving series.
40
Los Angeles Times - John Anderson
Although it comes under the increasingly crowded category of Why Did They Bother, McHale's Navy does offer an example of a movie that tries to be all things to all people. As long as they're 13 and male.
25
TV Guide Magazine - Maitland McDonagh
This shotgun marriage of coarse laughs and low-rent action cliches is, of course, utterly predictable: Cutting-edge comedy isn't lurking under the corpses of old TV shows.

Chicago Sun-Times - Unnamed
McHale's Navy is an astonishingly bad film. Even if you never saw the early '60s TV series on which it is loosely based, you'll hate it. [18 Apr 1997, p.39]
