On the surface a parody of Jacques Cousteau’s undersea documentaries, but even if you were born too late to grow up on Cousteau on television, this is a brilliant masterpiece of understated droll comedy with a touch of Chaplinesque pathos.  Starring Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Anjelica Huston, Willem Dafoe and other luminaries. Lost a lot of money at the box office because it was halfway intelligent.  Perhaps the humor was inaccessible to the masses.
