Down Periscope

Sporadically funny film about a captain of a submarine participating in a war game with a very interesting, colorful and talented crew to back him up. Frasier's Kelsey Grammer is rather bland as the captain, but he manages to supply sufficient humor. Rob Schneider does a nice job as the animated and dimwitted officer who is much disliked by the crew (they eventually make him walk the plank!) Them and other notable comedians make this a delightful comedy. Crude humor executes this film from the family genre.
