Some innuendo, profanity in mediocre slapstick comedy.

It's not exactly a bad movie, but it's so forgettable that it's almost exhausting.

Exactly what you'd expect.

Kelsey Grammar's transition to the big screen is far from seamless.

It's good-natured, innocuous frivolity that should raise a few smiles and generate good but not great spring box office.

he construction is so ramshackle (or the mood so PC) that the film-makers put a woman (Holly) on board, then can't find a thing to do with her.

Routine.

Mediocre comedy. Like a SNL film but with Frasier instead.

Rather lame.

May 27, 2003
A directionless and doomed diversion. Grammer's naval military mishap is a sinking ship both literally and figuratively
| Original Score: 2/5

"Police Academy" underwater. (If only...)

It's embarrassing to see Lauren Holly wasting her time as the butt-of-all-the-obvious-jokes female aboard ship.

It is a pretty decent plot that gives everyone a chance to be silly.

The tone of the acting, which is set by Mr. Grammer's blandly laid-back performance, is all wrong for a genre that demands over-the-top hamming.

There are occasional laughs, but, as with most movies that think they're funnier than they actually are, most of the jokes fall flat.

More laid-back here than he is on television, Grammer seems to barely break a sweat.

Down Periscope is a rather leaky sub.

There's barely a belly laugh here, and judging from the deafening silence in the theatre where I saw the film, it's not just me.

Some of this is silly and dumb as jokes fall flat. But there are also some laughs to be had.

A soggy sub sandwich layered with cheesy action, stale jokes and gung-ho baloney.
