Movie Info

Lt. Rip Crandall (Jack Lemmon) is entrusted with one of the most important missions of his World War II career: to shuttle an Australian spy (Chips Rafferty) into enemy territory. Unfortunately, he'll be doing it with one of the Navy's least seaworthy vessels, the USS Echo. But even in a clunker of a ship, Crandall and his madcap crew -- including his enthusiastic young ensign (Ricky Nelson) -- do their best to make their ill-equipped mission a success.

    This movie isn't as wacky as it sounds, it's actually kind of boring and stupid. I didn't care much for it, but it's not that bad either. It has it's moments.

    Nothing new from Lemmon here. This is not an example of the military being a good source of humor. Nelson is stiff. The movie can be compared to the junker boat that is sent on a near impossible mission.
