| Adorable Saturday afternoon movie
From John Cusack's earlier days, this film is a cute one that slipped through the cracks. It features a shaggy-haired John from his earlier, hapless romantic teen phase. Ben Stiller, as ever, plays a jerk. It's not a must-see, but a good one to pass the time with and just have a laugh at the strange things Cusack has to do in this movie--aside from getting wet and topless...

High points of the movie: watching him get stoned with a bunch of island natives, get drunk in an island bar and shanghaied into service on a boat, and then arrested and thrown into a local jail. The crazy pirate, played by Robert Loggia was excellent comedy relief as well.

Trivia

'The New York Times' review said that the movie "makes Gilligan's Island (1964) look like The Night of the Iguana (1964)".


Quotes

Dan Bartlett: They call me 'Mr. Determined.'


Goofs

Although the film was supposed to take place in the Caribbean, it is clearly in Mexico, and not the Mexican Caribbean.
