Critic Reviews for Nate and Hayes

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2) | Rotten (5)

  • Nate and Hayes is one of the more inexplicable films I've encountered recently. The part I can't explain is: Why did they make it? The movie is a loud, confusing, pointless mess that never seems to make up its mind whether to be a farce or an adventure.

  • Tries unsuccessfully to be that buoyant, rollicking pirate movie we all remember having seen in our youth and which they don't make anymore.

    June 24, 2006 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • A mess, and more to be studied as the sort of thing to avoid than respected as a forgotten gem that needs a new audience. But boy is it ever hard to turn away.

    September 19, 2011 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…
  • Old fashioned but far from compelling...

    July 15, 2006 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The movie shoots for light-hearted adventure but sinks like a lead anchor.

Audience Reviews for Nate and Hayes

  • Aug 08, 2009
    Made before Tommy Lee Jones became a big star it was quite obviously the inspiration for Pirates of the Caribbean. It was released in the UK under the title SAVAGE ISLANDS but in some places it was called NATE & HAYES. However, shame on Paramount for not exploiting it better. I know they had a lot riding on the not dissimilar Indiana Jones films but this is a cracking adventure and deserves better treatment (and why oh why has it not been seen on UK television for about 15 years?).
