The Wackiest Ship in the Army 1960 5 out of 10

The Wackiest Ship in the Army  1960  5 out of 10

First of all the title is completely inaccurate and misleading. There was nothing even remotely wacky about the movie at all.  It was an okay film based on a true story about a small sailing ship that was used in order sneak into an area patrolled by Japanese ships in order to save many lives during the war.   A decent story starring the very talented Jack Lemmon and a crew of misfits and the challenges they faced on their mission.  I went into this movie expecting something wacky so a standard low key war movie wasn't something I wasn't ready for.  Where is the wacky???
If it had been called Mission aboard the Echo I probably would have liked it since I wouldn't have been expecting and then been disappointed by the utter lack of wackiness.
