Lt. Commander Thomas Dodge has dreamed all of his life about helming his own nuclear submarine. He's popular with his men, a brilliant tactician, and he has instincts of a nouveau Ulysses. But when his name comes up for a promotion, some members of the Naval brass blanch and bristle. Unfortunately, Tom Dodge not only has an ancient vessel to contend with, but he must also make sailors out of a motley crew from which six men dubiously emerge.

I have seen almost all of these actors in other roles from NCIS to any of slue of Jerry Bruckheimer shows. The characters they portray in those other roles are so 180 degrees from their goof-ball characters in this movie that it's sometimes difficult to accept their more serious roles. Then again, that's why they're actors.
Some people have complained that the movie does not comply with all of the customs and courtesies of military bearing (saluting, reporting for duty in civilian dress, etc.), while some of that is true, let's not forget that this is a movie designed for laughter. As a retired military member, I can waive the minor inconsistencies in favor of enjoying this movie.
In summation, if you want a fun movie that'll get you laughing, still present quality acting, tells a story, makes you woot for heroes, then this is that movie. I've watched it countless times and will continue to do so. I do so not because I'm enamoured with any particular actor, but simply because I love this film.
This is a quirky military comedy, where a borderline command washout is assigned a old WWII diesel powered sub and a misfit crew to run some war games against the US Nuclear navy.
