Movie Info

The three Lawrence brothers -- Joey, Matthew, and Andrew -- join forces for this made-for-TV adventure, in which Joey and Andrew reprise their characters from the movie Horse Sense. Jake Hunter (Matthew Lawrence) and his young friend Tommy Biggs (Andrew Lawrence) are invited to a luxury island resort for a vacation, and Jake gets the idea of hiring a boat to take them there so they can get some deep-sea fishing in along the way. The boat, piloted by Tommy's old cohort Michael Woods (Joey Lawrence), turns out to be a dangerous rust bucket, but that soon proves to be the least of their problems when a crew of modern-day pirates attempts to take over the ship, forcing the three passengers to abandon ship and take cover on a nearby island. Jumping Ship was produced for The Disney Channel, where it premiered on August 17, 2001.

Audience Reviews for Jumping Ship


pretty much anything with the lawrence brothers is at least good to stare at if the movie isn't so great.

I look back fondly on this movie, it was from a time in high school where hormones ruled and Matthew Lawerence was my guilty pleasure on TV. I don't know if I'd enjoy it as much now, but I'll still put it in the netflix queue.

Ohhh yeah! I remember this movie. It wasn't half bad. Maybe only a little more than half bad, but not fully half bad. Rich people are always trying to learn a lesson.
