In Down Periscope, Kelsey Grammer portrays a naval officer who has a tattoo in a strange place. Because of this, he is only laughed at when he requests his own ship. Finally, the Navy agrees to give him a rusty, old submarine with a mockery of a crew. Grammer takes it all in stride. Then, Lt. Emily Lake boards the ship. Some of the crew members steal her clothes, and shrink them. Lt. Lake appears on deck in these clothes, and Grammer jokes, "Why, Lt. Lake, you're practically out of uniform!"
There are other funny scenes as the crew tries to win a war game - so Grammer can get a real boat. Will they win? Although I thought this movie was funny, I wouldn't recommend it to kids under 10 - as there definitely is some bad language.
