Silly TV version of the oft-told Verne tale finds marine biologist Aronnax (Crenna) and his assistant/daughter Sophie (Cox) prisoners on Captain Nemo's (Cross) submarine. In the original Verne version, Sophie was a young man--the sex change now means there's lots of boring eye-batting between Sophie, harpoonist Ned Land (Gross), and the jealous Nemo. The underwater photography is nifty but the fish also provide more excitement than the cast.
