No and no...

I can't think of any more hints.  It was The Filthy Whore.

I have added Cabin Boy to my queue.  One of those questions where, if you've seen the film, you're going to know the answer.

In what film do we also find Chris Elliot on a boat?  Think deep.

Of the Chris Elliott flicks I know -- and I'm ashamed I can't reel off every single one in order -- none fit.  So it's probably not Snow Day, Groundhog Day or the Scary Movie in which he appeared.

It is a minor role.  But he does get some Chris Elliot attitude in there, referring to another cast member as "The Queen Bitch of the Sea" or something like that.

The original hint "think deep" refers to the title of the film.

Most amusing.  But incorrect.

Though it might be said that there is a rather phallic object that does make contact with the undersea personnel, at some point in the film.

The Abyss?

In case that's correct, I'll ask this one 'cause I just found out about it and can't wait.  If I'm entirely out of line...well, will bear with being ignored:

Q: What should movie buffs know about the 9th Circuit U. S. Court of Appeals decision U S v Syufy Enterprises (1990) 903 F.2d 659 written by Judge Alex Kosinski?

(whiskeypriest, if happening by, disqualified...or not)

The Abyss is abysmally correct.

The 1990 case -- was that the one that mandated no more than four Baldwin brothers could be working in motion pictures at any one time?  IIRC, Dexter Baldwin and Vincent Baldwin, two of the lesser Baldwin brothers, appealed the decision, and it was eventually overturned in a U.S. appellate court.

Cute, barton, and such should probably be considered in the public interest, but 'twas not in this case:  http://tarlton.law.utexas.edu/lpop/etext/kozinski.htm

Earl Hofert appears in the credits of "Cabin Boy."  What is his real name?

Or:

What "Cabin Boy" actor was contractually obligated, if he ever did appear in a movie, to appear in a Disney -produced movie?

The actor refers to the male lead by several women's names.

I'll take this question down if the apparent lack of stimulation continues another day.
