About the Movie
Vulgar, slapstick comedy abounds in this feature film debut for television sitcom star Kelsey Grammer. Almost everyone else thinks of Lieutenant Commander Tom Dodge is a class "A" goof who messes up every task he is assigned, but Adm. Dean Winslow thinks otherwise and decides to give Dodge one last chance by assigning him to helm an outmoded, diesel powered, rusty in a series of wargames. Dodge's sub is to be the enemy and must somehow outsmart their high tech opponents. Though ostensibly only games, Admiral Yancy Graham, who considers Dodge an embarrassment to the Navy, decides to do everything he can to scuttle Dodge and his ragtag crew's mission.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The tone of the acting, which is set by Mr. Grammer's blandly laid-back performance, is all wrong for a genre that demands over-the-top hamming.
Rotten: A soggy sub sandwich layered with cheesy action, stale jokes and gung-ho baloney.
Rotten: After that auspicious opening, it sinks.
Rotten: More laid-back here than he is on television, Grammer seems to barely break a sweat.
Laughs? YES, YES, YES!
This movie is a laugh riot! Always a good pick if you need something to laugh at or with. Kelsey G. is superb and the supporting cast is spot on. No -- it's not High Comedy, or Sophisticated Slapstick -- but if you just want a funny movie with some decent wit and great ensemble acting, "Kick this Pig!"
