Movie Info

Former NBC intern and Get a Life creator Chris Elliott stars as the title character, a recent graduate of the exclusive Fancy Lad Academy who unwittingly boards the wrong sea vessel and ends up a whipping post for its gruff, foul-mouthed crew after his predecessor (Andy Richter of The Late Show) falls overboard. Over the course of their adventures, Elliot eventually earns the respect of the crew as he also earns his manhood. This supremely silly film features sight gags and tastelessness galore,

Weird comedy-fantasy cult classic with language, innuendo.

I count myself as one of the movie's dozen or so fans.

Strange little comedy that's a lot more intriguing than you might think.

A horrible movie with a classic line by David Letterman.

Extremely weird, and certainly not for everyone. Yet very, very brilliant in its own strange way.

Someone should put a lock on that cabin!

Classic goofiness!!! An acquired taste for sure.

August 31, 2002

It's got a few "so weird it's funny" gags - but mostly it's just really bad.

Audience Reviews for Cabin Boy

A very odd film, not sure if I like it or hate it but I was somehow mesmerized by it bizarreness!

Don't remember much about it.

Cabin Boy is great! It seemed like a two-minute David Letterman skit stretched into a full-length motion picture, with Chris Elliot playing the perfect Cabin Boy. Silly cartoonish script, but I liked a lot of the dumb humour and adventures on the salty sailing ship. There were great fantasy creatures, including a mermaid, the snowman and the giant businesman; and even a mer-man! My favorite scene was when they set him out on his own raft to starve. A fun voyage indeed.

Worth seeing for David Letterman and Andy Richter. Otherwise... it's just kind of weird.
