Far from feminist, though I enjoyed seeing so many men doing the cleaning. There are fun moments and Kelsey Grammer as the hapless new sub captain is rather good if not hapless enough. Bruce Dern and Rip Torn spar enjoyably, but it lacks actual jokes.

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

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

A directionless and doomed diversion. Grammer's naval military mishap is a sinking ship both literally and figuratively

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.

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

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