A rusty sub. A rebel commander. A renegade crew. When destiny called, they should have hung up.

Bumbling Navy lieutenant Tom Dodge has been given one last chance to clean up his record. But Admiral Graham, his nemesis, assigns Dodge to the Stingray, a submarine that can barely keep afloat. To add insult to injury, the Stingray is to be the enemy flagship in the upcoming war games … and to make matters even worse, Dodge's crew is a band of idiots even more incompetent that he is!

Germany German (Deutsch)

Mission: Rohr frei!

Was passiert, wenn ein vertrottelter U-Boot-Captain, eine noch dümmere Mannschaft und ein museumsreifer Kahn zusammentreffen? Diese explosive Mischung sorgt für das schrägste und abgefahrenste Abenteuer der Navy-Geschichte. Lt. Thomas Dodge, der die Intelligenz eines Rollmopses besitzt, erhält von Admiral Graham das Kommando über ein U-Boot, mit dem er wichtige US-Militärhäfen einnehmen soll, ohne dass die eigene Flotte es bemerkt. Dodge ahnt nicht, dass Graham diese Mission nur plant, um die Angriffe medienwirksam mit modernen Schiffen zu stoppen. Er erhält eine Crew, die aus den unfähigsten Marines besteht, die in der Navy herumdümpeln und sein Gefährt ähnelt einer verrosteten Sardinenbüchse. Somit sind alle Voraussetzungen erfüllt, diese Operation zur "Mission Rohrkrepierer" werden zu lassen.

Malgré l'opposition de l'amiral Graham, fondée sur ses états de services douteux, le commandant Dodge hérite du commandement du sous-marin USS Stingray... un véritable fer à repasser. Avec un équipage hétéroclite, il mène avec succès une première mission simulée, s'attirant la haine de Graham. La guerre est déclarée, pratiquement pour de vrai !
