Our Score
There's not much worth noting about this Disney attempt at maritime comedy. When businessman Martin Short and his wife Mary Kay Place set sail with their sassy kids, they hire titular seaman Kurt Russell for his supposed expertise. Needless to say, their best-laid plans are soon up the creek without a paddle. Having sported an eye-patch in Escape from New York, Russell gets to do so once again, only this time he combines it with something that looks worryingly like a bikini. Although the film does contain some hilarious moments, these are too few and far between, while singer Paul Anka's turn as a boat salesman would have been better left on the cutting-room floor.

Summary

An American businessman learns that his recently deceased uncle has left him a yacht moored in the Caribbean, and ill-advisedly puts his trust in a wayward one-eyed mariner to help him and his family sail the vessel back to Miami. Comedy adventure, starring Kurt Russell, Martin Short, Mary Kay Place and Benjamin Salisbury.
