Down Periscope

Down Periscope, 1996 film staring Kelsey GrammerLauren HollyRob Schneider and more.  I think they trying to be slapstick like McHale’s Navy but they got it wrong.  It was a decent comedy and the story was good but I couldn’t get into the supporting cast’s style of comedy, not up to par.

It’s about a Navy officer getting his first sub command, a world war 2 diesel sub.  His mission is to simulate attack on two Naval bases (Charleston Harbor and Norfolk) and if he is successful he will get a real command.  Of course there is  Rear Admiral Yancy Graham (Bruce Dern) who does not like him and tries everything to stop him.

It’s an ok movie to watch once but definitely not a keeper in my collection.
