Storyline

When a Canadian Atlantic coast fishing village is threatened with the loss of all of its fishing rights, local reverend (and mayor) Augustus Knickel finds a way to fight back. Relying on an obscure clause in an ancient treaty, he declares the village as an independent republic! He also finds a way to back up those words: by buying an abandoned Russian nuclear submarine from the most senior officer still aboard (namely, the cook.)

Quotes

[Nelson was embarrassed at the town meeting by Dexter]
Nelson: Oh yeah, Dexter. Do yourself a favour. The next time you have this overwhelming urge to ejaculate some professional jealousy you may have towards me why don't you do it in the privacy of your own bathroom instead of a goddamn public forum! Because if it happens again, Dexter, I will do my very best to make sure you wake up the next morning without a profession!

Where are the credits
10 June 2005 | by (Windsor, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

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?
