Trivia

The colony of small, stalked plants that Hank finds in the sand and from which he collects a sample is Penicillus, which goes by the common name of Merman's Shaving Brush, Neptune's Shaving Brush, or Shaving Brush Plant. It's a type of green alga commonly found in the shallows of the Caribbean. See more »

Goofs

Standish skin dives to rescue a sub in trouble, to a depth of 150 feet. When he returns to the surface, he swims up rapidly. As a professional, expert diver, Standish should know he'd be risking a case of the bends when not decompressing on his way up. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Craig Mosby: [into the loudspeaker microphone] Alright, clear the deck! Stand by to dive! On the double!

I've seen better plot in laxative commercials
24 March 2003 | by (NC, USA) – See all my reviews

The summary alone should tell you to rent this "god help us all if this is available to rent" ONLY if a) your an insomniac, b) masochist or c) a masochist who has trouble falling asleep. The 'acting' is sub par, the characters are one dimensional and the plot.... well, it just proves that one can indeed write a movie script inspired by a box of corn flakes. Wait, that's not fair, corn flakes would make a better movie. The plot of the movie is this team of 'experts' travels the oceans laying down seismographic monitors to detect underwater earthquakes. Near the end, surprise, they get into trouble and have to think of a clever way to escape. The viewer on the other hand, has a much easier way out, change the channel to the Home Shopping Network in search of better entertainment. As for the cast, the only way they could have pulled some of those actors is by making this a contractual obligation or maybe blackmail.
