Factual error: When the submarine rises in the waters of Norfolk and you see Norfolk in the background, there is one blatant problem. There are NO mountains in Norfolk. Most of Norfolk, Virginia, is below sea level.
Factual error: Most uniforms in this movie are worn incorrectly. Between wearing belts incorrectly, not wearing ribbons on dress uniform (shore patrol), female hair regulations, shoes, and having ribbons in the wrong order it's like they didn't even try.
Continuity mistake: When they are attempting to get "between the screws" of the tanker, the underwater footage shows twin screws, but the surface footage only shows wake from 1 single mid-ship propeller.
Trivia: In the scene when Lauren Holly, gives Kelsey Grammer, a kiss, her hitting her elbow was not in the original script. She really did hit her "funny bone" before walking off camera. The director had decided to keep it in the movie so they had to film an alternate shot of Grammer, laughing when it happened.
Pascal: Buckman! There was a fingernail in my food, you fat-ass moron! Yesterday, it was a band-aid!
Buckman: I'm sorry, sir. The band-aid was holding the fingernail on.
Pascal: Jesus, Buckman! This stuff has been on the Stingray since Korea! This can expired in 1966!
Buckman: What's the matter, sir? It still tastes like cream corn.
Pascal: Except it's deviled ham.
Sonar: Sir, it's the Orlando. Somebody just dropped forty-five cents.
Dodge: Are you sure?
Sonar: Oh, yeah. A quarter and...two dimes.
Question: Whose picture did Dodge salute in his cabin when he said "live to fight another day"?
