Classic, silly Don Knotts fish-in-water fantasy.

Paints a picture of marriage I would just rather steer clear of

There is a bizarre slant to this movie; what with Don Knotts leaving his loveless marriage to become a fish - and fall in love with a ladyfish. Plus you have the friend going out dancing with his now-widow. It doesn't seem to have it's heart in the right place. Plus it's all set against the backdrop of the War. And of Limpet longing to be both a fish and war hero. I think it was interesting for its time, but that time has passed.

This film prooves that movies can be enjoyable without drugs, sex, or violence.

Cute and funny yet enjoyable for everyone, not just kids, though they probably like it more. Thank goodness for little brothers. Without them I would have probably passed this movie by. ~Ivey

Nothing Fishy!

Films that take place during World War II, hardly ever get as light hearted as this movie. Henry is a good role model, when he helps his country and uses his secret power (secret until you watch the movie) to save Ladyfish , Crusty, and America. The scene where torpedos chase Henry and Crusty can be a little intense, but they think of a way to escape.
