Obviously not too many discerning film-goers frequenting this site :fsbgrin: - the movie is "Anchorman - The Ron Burgundy Story"

I'll try another one then : -

"Who's the U-boat commander?"

Assuming it's a U-boat film it could be one of many...

I'll pitch in with: 1941 (but can think of 3~4 more but didn't want to just list them all)

OK then -

The "U-Boat" in question is actually a Porsche, and the field of operation is Lake Michigan!!
80's movie.

Wild guess (as I've never seen this film) Ferris Bueller's Day Off?

Reasonably well-educated guess, but wrong :fsbgrin: :!: :!: :!:

Going by all the clues that have been given, is it Risky Business?

Another clue:

In my years of service I have never met an officer who inflicted punishment upon men with such incredible relish. Sickening.

More clues:

The film was based on a real life event. Think sailing ship, think chocolate bar. :fsbgrin:

No Plummy he wasn't - perhaps you are thinking of Mr Roberts, a film about the American Navy?

This film is about a famous incident that took place aboard a ship of the Royal Navy.

I'm surprised that nobody has picked up on the chocolate bar reference - think coconuts. :fsbgrin:

I decided to scrap my earlier comment. Ian you are co close - final clue then. What unlawful incident occurred on the Bounty?

Time to call it a day on this one - it was Mutiny on The Bounty.. I do not wish to put up another title, so as Ian was the closest, then it is only fair that he has the next go.

That's very gracious - promise I wasn't trying to be silly. I had a genuine blind spot....

That's okay Ian - I realised that you were not being silly with your " Bounty " comment. It did make me laugh though, hence my original reply which was intended to be silly but with hindsight, might have been misinterpreted as sarcasm. :oops:

Ian, I'll come clean then and confess that it wasn't just me who laughed at your " Bounty " comment ( we laughed a lot ) but Richard as well. :fsbgrin:

Thank you Ian - thinking of an ancient advert, Do you love someone enough to give them your last Rollo? I'll share the Bounty with Richard. :fsbgrin:
