The Poseidon, an ocean liner larger than the Queens Elizabeth and Mary combined, is charting its course on New Year's Eve. Just after midnight, Captain Harrison (Leslie Nielsen) spots the mother of all tidal waves. It is the last thing that Harrison and practically everyone else onboard sees before drowning -- the Poseidon is turned upside down, with only a handful of survivors. The ten lucky ones -- including Mike Rogo (Ernest Borgnine), Linda Rogo (Stella Stevens), Acres (Roddy McDowall),

Classic of disaster movie genre with memorable cast.
"timo filme-catástrofe que, além do habitual elenco estelar e da excepcional direção de arte, conta com tensas seqüências de ação.
The Poseidon Adventure was one of the first disaster flicks and it arguably remains the best.
What the glittering, star-driving survivalism of Poseidon Adventure actually presents is a nightmarishly schematic fantasia of guiltless discomfort.
If we're making picks for the most entertaining disaster flicks ever made -- my enthusiastic vote goes to The Poseidon Adventure. Easily.
Pure '70s Hollywood.
One of the best of the 1970s all-star disaster movies.
superb guilty pleasure
Now you've done it; high concept disaster movies, especially those of Irwin Allen, are one of the chinks in my critical armor. Just can't watch them enough.
Classic disaster movie. Still holds up today as the survivors climb up a capsized boat.
A great, cheesy voyage that is grandly entertaining.
One of the best disaster movies of all time!
If only the dialogue weren't so putrid, this could have been an outstanding adventure film.
