Academy Award winners Henry Fonda, James Cagney and Jack Lemmon star. World War II. Across the South Pacific the war rages in acts of courage, bravery, heroism...And somewhere in becalmed tropical waters lazily steams the cargo ship U.S.S. Reliant, vital to the war effort but never seeing combat. As its crew members devise wacky adventures to fight boredom, the ship's lieutenant struggles to find a way to get into combat and fight for his country. But a different sacrifice will be asked of aspiring hero Mister Roberts.

WWII dramedy is a true American classic.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that, although the rowdy behavior depicted seems tame by modern standards, the adult subject matter and bawdy humor are not suitable for younger kids. Officers are seen drinking home brew made from medicinal alcohol. Crewmembers use telescopes to spy on showering nurses at a nearby hospital. Ensign Pulver lures a nurse to his quarters with the intention of getting her drunk and seducing her.
