Mchale's Navy Joins The Air Force is a comedy film that was released in 1965. The movie is a continuation of the popular television series, which aired from 1962 to 1966. The film stars Joe Flynn, Tim Conway, and Bob Hastings. The story takes place in the year 1965 at the Naval Base in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Captain Binghamton, played by Joe Flynn, is upset with the shenanigans of Lieutenant Commander McHale, played by Ernest Borgnine. In an attempt to get rid of McHale, Binghamton convinces him to join the Air Force to help with a mission in Cuba.

McHale, along with his crew of misfits, including Tim Conway's character, Ensign Parker, and Bob Hastings' character, Lieutenant Carpenter, wreak havoc on the Air Force base. Their antics cause chaos and destruction, much to the chagrin of the Air Force officers, including their commanding officer, General Bronson, played by Gavin MacLeod.

Despite the chaos, McHale and his crew are able to complete their mission and save the day. Along the way, they learn to work together with the Air Force and earn their respect.

The film is a lighthearted comedy that is sure to entertain fans of the television series. Joe Flynn delivers a strong performance as the uptight Captain Binghamton, while Tim Conway's character, Ensign Parker, provides the comic relief with his bumbling and clumsy behavior. Bob Hastings provides a solid performance as Lieutenant Carpenter, and his interactions with Conway's character are particularly entertaining.

The film features a number of humorous moments, including a scene where Ensign Parker accidentally shoots down an Air Force plane with a flare gun, and another scene where McHale's crew uses a helicopter to lift a car out of a swimming pool.

The setting of the film is also visually interesting, as it takes place on an Air Force base rather than the usual naval setting of the television series. This change of scenery adds an extra layer of novelty to the film.

Overall, Mchale's Navy Joins The Air Force is a fun and entertaining film that will appeal to fans of the television series. It features strong performances from its cast, plenty of humor, and a memorable setting.
