Also Known As:
Be Careful How You Wish
Format Used: DVD
Genre: Family Fantasy
Mild Mannered man Henry Limpit wanted to fight for his country but due to flat feet he was dubbed 4F. Also Henry has a fanatic
about fish. When he wishes to becomes a fish. Then during a trip with Betsy and an old friend George he falls into the ocean
and is magically transformed into a fish.
Now adapting to life as a fish is harder and more dangerous then Henry thought it would be. But he makes new friends
along the way, Crusty the hermit crab and Lady Fish. Together they help the allies fight Nazi subs with the help of a sound
that Henry is reborn with, the thrum as Henry dubs it.
But when he falls in love with Lady Fish, he is torn between his love for her and his human wedding vows to Betsy, the
wife he left behind on land.
This is a classic film, fun and funny, entertaining and touching. A good moral. Be careful what you wish for. For dreams
can fool you and they very often do. The acting and the interaction between the human characters and the character of Henry
is flawless. But it is a little draggy, like allot of Don Knotts films of this time peroid.
