Movie Info

With a cast collected strictly for laughs, this is the tale of a Washington high-society hostess with no real concept of the world at large who joins the Women's Army Corps, expecting to be commissioned so that she wouldn't have to deal with the riff-raff. Of course, her commission never materializes. A precursor to the movie Private Benjamin, there are some good laughs as the upper crust meets with the lower crust of society.

Audience Reviews for Never Wave at a WAC


If you've ever seen Private Benjamin you will notice that this movie was the inspiration for that one. Which is better? I'd say they're about the same in terms of comedy and acting and story. A pretty good movie.
