This lesser-known Spielberg gem has attained cult status over the years since its production in 1979. With an all-star ensemble comedy cast, the events revolve around the time of the bombing of Pearl Harbor- only it involves a Japanese submarine surfacing off the coast of kickback California. In Hollywood !

With a hilariously dysfunctional, yet truly patriotic lot the likes of; Dan Akroyd, Ned Beatty, Lorraine Gary, John Candy and a whole plethora of comedians, they are tasked with defending California. Oddly enough, a Japanese submarine has in fact reached their shores under the command of its captain (Toshoro Milfune)- only without a working compass or usable maps !

Make sure you don't sit this one out !
