Paranoia meets pandemonium.
It's been six days since the attack on Pearl Harbor. Panic grips California, supposedly the next target of the Japanese forces. Everywhere in California, people are suffering from war nerves. Chaos erupts all over the state. An Army Air Corps Captain, a civilian with a deranged sense of Nationalism, civilian defenders, and a Motor Pool crew all end up chasing a Japanese sub planning to attack LA.

Watched the extended. I think Kubrick's opinion says it best..."The movie is great but it's not funny." I'm not so sure it's great, even. When u think of bits and pieces I like it but watching 2hr26min of this was tough. Was making me drowsy. I'm glad I watched it though, this has always been a desired watch for me. As a kid I would the cover at the video store and think whoa whoa whoa this has John Belushi it's gotta be good but my mom always talked me out of it saying he's barely in it. Sorry to say but she was right to avoid it.
