A true classic in all ways. Cary Grant and Tony Curtis along with a great cast of veteran character actors give us a movie to enjoy for eons. For all you folks who like trivia keep your ears open at the very end of the movie when Cary Grant leaves the Sea Tiger!

This is by far a movie classic. Lots of great humor from two of my favorite actors Cary Grant and Tony Curtis. If you have a standard TV (4:3 aspect ratio) you will enjoy the widescreen version of this very funny movie.
If, however, you have a widescreen TV (16:9 aspect ratio) this DVD may not be for you. Artisan has chosen to record the DVD in a non-anamorphic format so the best you can do (and still retain the proper vertical to horziontal proportions) is gray bars on the sides and black bars top and bottom.

This movie starts out a bit slow but it keeps the laughs all through the film. It may not be your typical Grant film but he still gives a steller preformance. The film revolves around a submarine and its crew during war and all the funny situations that can happen.

This movie is not just about submarines in the war but an absolute hilarious movie about the captain and his crew and how they deal with getting certain parts for this sub and how to help some stranded nurses on the way, with babies being born to painting a sub pink it is full of funny antics by all the actors involved.

Director Blake Edwards is a master at this sort of movie.

You have seen the basic story many times, however never as funny as this version. The action takes place during WWII in the south Pacific. Cary Grant is Commander Matt Sherman of the Sea Tiger, a not all too gather well submarine in need of repairs and lead paint. Tony Curtis is Lieutenant Nicholas Holden, an executive officer that is not too ept at sea duty but makes a procurement officer with unique abilities and methods of obtaining needed parts. Toss in a few nurses, some goats and you have the makings of an interesting situation.

I was interested in finding out who plays Seaman Hornsby? He was a real pig.

Like submarines, this flick really doesn't have that much keeping itself above the waterline. The USS Sea Tiger is almost completely destroyed when attacked by the Japanese in port in 1941. Through the pluck of its commanding officer, Matt Sherman (Cary Grant) and the scheming of his very un-military XO (Tony Curtis), the stricken sub is pulled together enough to make it out to sea, where it suffers a series of embarrassing misadventures - the crowning indignity being the coat of pink paint it must wear when their isn't enough gray. In between, the sub faces off against a squad of army nurses, a family of Filipino refugees, a goat, and a torpedoed jeep - all without killing a fly. It's not great comedy, but the flick gets by with Curtis as Holden who can always get what he wants, and never wants active-duty (when he tells Grant that he had seen action on a destroyer, Grant is dumbstruck that Curtis ever found time for it between golfing with admirals and dancing at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel). The flick actually belongs to Grant as the prim and perfect Sherman who tries to mold Curtis into a proper officer and finds himself being molded in his likeness instead. (When sailors find their port facilities stripped to provide replacement parts for Sea Tiger, a forlorn admiral concludes that they've witnessed "Sherman's march to the sea".) The leads aside, "Petticoat" is actually a great time capsule of a time in Hollywood when the military was still respected - in more modern flicks, the street smarts of Curtis's character would make him the hero and the wisest of all. But the script makes him a pathetic weasel to be whipped into shape by the proper Sherman, who of course sees right through Holden.

Starring two awesome actors and a great supporting cast, this movie is a lot of fun. For those who've seen Tony Curtis in Some Like It Hot (with Marilyn Monroe and Jack Lemmon), you may already know that he greatly admired Cary Grant, as his hilarious impression of him in that film shows. In fact, originally Cary Grant was not going to star in this film, but Tony Curtis was reluctant to take second billing to anyone else. Their on-screen camaraderie is fantastic and the way that their friendship develops throughout the film, despite Curtis's characters blatant disregard for navy regulations, is enjoyable. The basic storyline is one of a submarine, with Cary Grant in charge, that is put out of action during WW2 without firing a single missile at the enemy. Grant is determined to get her seaworthy again, and after some makeshift repairs he sets off with his crew to get to a port where proper repairs can be made. However, he has gained an unexpected new crew member in the form of Tony Curtis, an 'ideas' man who has only ever been to sea once, and that was by accident. The self-appointed 'morale' and 'supply' officer uses various dodgy methods to enable the repairs to the sub to take place. And, being a true supply officer, manages to bring aboard some lovely American nurses when the sub puts into a small island temporarily. With the addition of these love interests for the main characters the fun really starts. But I'll leave you to watch it, and enjoy it for yourself.
