This is a really funny movie. It's not an all time classic but it's definitely worth watching and better than the reviews on this site give it credit for. Martin Short is underrated here and Kurt Russell is hilarious. If you don't go into this expecting "Some Like it Hot" you'll have s great time with this movie.
great fun for the whole family. i loved john dwyer's unique writing style. we can all relate to a dad who has an existential crisis and is just allowed to live on the edge. captain ron, played by kurt russel, was a hoot and a half!
A cult comedy, triggered by Russell's performance with a similar eye-patch that he wore before, with some funny moments that fulfills the genre as well being unfunny, silly and dull like it seems the ship sails and Short is hanging on while Russell's sailing and not knowing he'd forgotten the others. (B)
Very oddly likeable movie featuring Martin Short and family inheriting a boat, and wanting to sail it back to the US to sell it. They hire a VERY grizzled captain, played by Kurt Russell, to steer it there. Hijinx ensue. Not a lot of plot, some plot holes (How did they exactly wind up in jail?) but Kurt Russell moreso than Martin Short keeps it altogether with his performance.
This movie seemed as week at many critics have described it. However, it's harmless fun and although simple minded, it's a lot like most movies that appeal to people looking for a counter to the crap that passes for "good" movie making - sex, drugs and violence.
It is a nostalgic film from my childhood, and its important for me, i want to see it on Blu-Ray! I had to write this review because i have a problem with people that think a film has to be hilarious, to be a good movie, or be extremely funny to be of any worth. there is a - Captain Ron 1992 720p WEB-DL DD5 1 H 264 - which looks horribly compressed, and that's why i would buy on Blu-Ray!
