Some innuendo, profanity in mediocre slapstick comedy.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Down Periscope is a 1996 film in which Kelsey Grammer plays a naval officer who is given command of a down-at-the-heels submarine and must lead an oddball crew of misfits to victory in a war game that will determine his future. There is occasional sexual innuendo throughout the movie, including references to the lead character having the words "Welcome Aboard" tattooed on his penis. There also is frequent profanity, including "f--k" and "s--t." Overall, this is another run-of-the-mill slapstick comedy in which a group of misfits is asked to achieve great things; adolescents may be interested because of the juvenile humor.
