75- #DLMChallenge “Down Periscope”

For #75 of the #DLMChallenge #365moviesin365days on May 5th I watched: Down Periscope.

As a kid, I used to confuse this movie with McHale’s Navy having never seen either one. And now, I have a reference for at least one half of that mistaken identity case. Wow, I just looked up McHale’s Navy and swore that Kelsey Grammar was in that too.

This is one of those silly 90s comedies that I was never interested in growing up. But believe you me, I watched my fair share of shitty comedies.

Down Periscope truly feels like a 90s comedy and I can’t exactly decide why. Maybe it’s the type of humor, or the way it’s paced. Perhaps one day I’ll figure out why this film reminds me of other 90s comedies such as Major Payne, Sgt. Bilko, and National Lampoon’s Senior Trip. Until then, I shrug my shoulders.
