Although I liked the movie, I didn't see the credits given to the original writers of this story...in its original form...the writers of "The Mouse That Roared". Why not?
I'm sure that plagiarism isn't intended in this case...only a good story, set in a Canadian context.
And the research was lame. Among the gaffs, Canadian Naval Officers don't have the "curly-q" on their sleeves, just the rings. The "curly-q" is a Brit thing...we aren't Brits. A small amount of research would replace assumption with fact.
As in most Canadian films, all of the usual suspects were cast. Except...was Leslie Nielson busy?
