Commander Kirsch: While we transport Dr. Rheinhartdt and Mr. Postley to their designated research area, we'll try to accomodate your whale-watching.
Laura Dyson: Actually, it's a little bit more complicated than whale-watching.
Commander Kirsch: Well, I'm sure you wouldn't be here unless you called it "Cetalogical Recognition Factors in Subaqueous Environments."

My son's a bubblehead...
6 February 2001 | by (Olympia, WA) – See all my reviews

So my home-on-leave-from-his-submarine son and I sat down to enjoy a nice submarine movie directed by that fine technician, Alan Smithee. Seeing the apartment sized submersable that not only had plenty of room for the three civilians, but a hot tub and sauna.

OK, OK, not the hot tub. My son quickly asked for a piece of paper to list the technical errors he noticed. Soon he asked for another piece of paper, then another. Starting with the incorrect hull numbers on the boat, to the CO's tee shirt (with writing on it), to the showers -- the woman used enough water for ten men to shower for a week, not to mention the green coolant and the reacter starting like an old flathead Ford, my kid stopped counting at 65 errors.

Fo me, I like to kick back and enjoy movies without nitpicking. I can overlook minor mistakes. I know reality when I see it. My favorite part is when Stephen Baldwin finds and repairs the cause of the boat's crash dive to the bottom. A loose battery cable! One touch and everything works! Thank goodness for Diehard!
