There Is No Hope For Hope
A very unfunny funny comedy, either the worst or close to it, first time was somewhat funny, but got tiresome later on. Stay Away! Keep Private war... well Private
One of Hope's best efforts post-1950s
Though Bob never really lost his touch as a comic actor, it's no secret that many of his films after the mid-1950s just didn't have that same magic feeling that most of his previous work had. Knowing this was one of the last films Bob made, my hopes weren't high but I am pleased to report this is a good film. Hope's characters were pretty much all the same guy throughout his career but the Sgt. O' Farrell character is more heroic and less of a skirt chaser than what we have seen in Bob's previous movies. While I love the typical bumbling girl-crazy character Bob plays, even in the 1950s it was getting to be a bit of a stretch for the aging actor to pull off. This may be one of Hope's lesser known films but I highly recommend it for his fans. It's worth viewing.
the private navy of sgt o'farrell
probably the funniest movie Hope has made besides "Boy did i get a wrong number!"....this picture is really funny and fast-paced from start to finish..the script is outstanding-well put together and very witty..many funny sequences and situations with Hope and co-star Phyillis Diller -a perfect,natural comedy team. Director and writer Frank Tashlin does a wonderful job of crafting this film---many critics and fans alike have slammed it for being "insensitive" or "offensive" but remember it was made in 1968 America...not a whole lot of political correctness around then..the situation in Vietnam may have colored the critical reaction to this picture..give it a chance and you will find yourself laughing out loud--and never mind what Leonard Maltin says!
Welcome pretty lady.......
Laughed so hard when I first saw this. Bob Hope and Phyllis Diller are wonderfully paired in this movie.
