It's an aggressively bizarre movie, a mash-up of conflicting sensibilities that would only work for a niche audience.
Weird comedy-fantasy cult classic with language, innuendo.
So...when is Get a Life coming out on DVD?
Strange little comedy that's a lot more intriguing than you might think.
A horrible movie with a classic line by David Letterman.
An aquired taste
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.
It's got a few "so weird it's funny" gags - but mostly it's just really bad.
I quite enjoyed this film and thought it was harmless fun. Chris Elliott has always been an aquired taste and the film rests souly on what your idea of him is. The film has great ambitions and when the film travels into its fantasy world it succeeds where the rest of the film lacks.
full of interesting characters and great intentions, the silly premise is always a little hit and miss though which drags the film down when it should be gaining strength. this film has slowly developed into a cult favorite over the years and its clearly got Tim Burtons input. if you are looking for an interesting and weird film that was clearly before its tme then you'll find it hear.
the film deserved a little more appreciation then it got.
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.
