Retired Lieutenant Commander Quinton McHale spends his days puttering around the Caribbean in the old PT-73 selling homebrew, ice cream, and swimsuit calendars. He's brought out of retirement when his old nemesis turned the second best terrorist in the world, Major Vladikov, takes over the island of San Moreno and starts building a nuclear launch silo on it. With help from his old crew and hindrances from Captain Wallace B. Binghampton, who sank a cruise liner a while back, McHale tries to put Vladikov out of business. Written by

According to his book "If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B-Movie Actor", Bruce Campbell mentioned that McHale's crew were rarely given specific instructions in many scenes other than to follow Tom Arnold around. He and French Stewart were not given any direction at all for their sequence in the talent show, so they scripted out a vaudeville act using Naval and nautical terms all by themselves. Despite this, most of their sequence ended up playing in the background while the camera focused on Arnold and Debra Messing. See more »

God! This was bad! It is absoloutley how bad this movie was. Studios threw out $42 million on this, where they out of thier skull? My god.. Avoid this mess at all costs. Please. You will be a smarter person if you avoid. This movie was aired on Comedy Central. I had no intent of actually paying to rent this trash. Buzz Fiethans IV didn't even shoot the movie well. Bryan Spycer's direction is completely listless.
