* CelebrityParadox: Despite Zissou's status as a MockCousteau, at one point "Cousteau and his cronies" are mentioned. You'd think that the identical uniforms of the two crews would cause issues.


Added DiffLines:

* ExpyCoexistence: Steve is a blatant MockCousteau, but a comment from Steve establishes that Cousteau does exist in the universe of the film, as a rival to Steve.

* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: The bond company stooge. Unlike most examples, however, his real name, Bill Ubell, is stated a couple of times.

* ObstructiveBureaucrat: Subverted with Bill the Bond Company Stooge. Steve expects him to follow them around on the expedition interfering and telling him what he can and can't do, but he's actually a decent guy.

He is seen doing his accounting work in one shot.

Steve Zissou (Murray) is a world-renowned oceanographer and documentarian. Things are not going well for him. For starters, his documentaries have been getting less acclaim. His wife (Huston), who was once married to his arch rival Alistair Hennessey (Goldblum), refuses to join him on his expeditions anymore. And worst of all, during the filming of his last documentary, his best friend Esteban was eaten by what Zissou describes as a "Jaguar shark", a creature that -- given Zissou's mental state at the time -- few believe exists.

Zissou announces that his next documentary will detail his search for the jaguar shark in order to kill it. When he (predictably) can't get funding through the traditional channels, he receives the unexpected help of Ned Plimpton (Wilson PlayingAgainstType), a Kentucky airline pilot who believes Zissou to be his long lost father. Zissou sets out on the search for the Jaguar shark, His eclectic crew includes Ned; a "bond company stooge" sent by Zissou's producer to keep an eye on him; pregnant reporter Jane Winslett-Richardson (Blanchett), who ends up coming between Ned and Zissou; Klaus (Dafoe), a devoted German sailor with severe emotional issues; and a bunch of unpaid college interns.
