When his job along with that of his co-worker are threatened, Walter takes action in the real world embarking on a global journey that turns into an adventure more extraordinary than anything he could have ever imagined.
New Line Cinema's logo was not used in the film, because it was absent.
Never fun, this stage, but we do have ahead of us the privilege of publishing what will be the very last issue of Life magazine. We just received a telegram from Sean O'Connell, who has never been willing, I'm told, to speak with the executives here...
When Walter writes his on-line resume, he says he earned his keep as a "boatswain (unpaid deckhand)" on an Icelandic fishing trawler. A boatswain is a senior crew member, not a rookie deckhand. Walter tracked the boat down by flying to Nuuk, its port of registration, so it was a Greenlandic vessel, not Icelandic.
The making and authorized distribution of this film supported over 15,000 jobs and involved hundreds of thousands of work hours.
The British theatrical version was pre-cut during post-production to secure a PG rating (an uncut 12 rating was available to the distributor). This version was the one released worldwide.
