The Wackiest Ship in the Army

Lemmon flaps amiably enough as the lieutenant in charge of scrap-bound gunship 'The Echo', surprisingly charged with providing an escort through Japanese-controlled waters in the South Pacific in 1943, yet the vessel's real role is to provide an erratic decoy that'll suitably bamboozle enemy strategists. Passable blend of laughter and heroics, thankfully never quite as 'zany' as the title suggests.
