Rating: 2.5/4 -- Hawks delivers his usual heavy-handed direction, but the film's premise is too flimsy to spread over two hours. The script is marred by tired comic routines and slow pacing. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Here Hawks moves a little slower, cribbing some of his own early jokes, but still dead funny.

Outdoorsman-columnist Rock Hudson suddenly finds he has to live up to his reputation in this 1964 Howard Hawks comedy that's funnier than it has any right to be. Full Review

Product Description:

A fishing equipment salesman is persuaded to participate in a big fishing tournament, even though he abhors the outdoors and has never picked up a rod. A very funny slapstick comedy with a good performance by Prentiss as the pushy public relations rep.

Plot Synopsis:

Roger Willoughby, fishing gear salesman for Abercrombie & Fitch, is ordered by his boss to participate in a fishing competition. There's only one problem, however: Roger's never worked a rod and reel in his life. But he goes along with the charade, until he meets the beautiful Abigail, and becomes involved in a sport of a very different kind.
