Mild bit of nonsense, intrigue, with an out to sea feel
23 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first tried to tape this on the old SPN cable channel that also offered gems like "Port of Missing Girls". It is almost a light version of this movie. Girl gets in trouble with the law; she stows away on William Boyd's ship. Crewmember Edward Gargan is there with nice comic relief, as well as Harold Huber, who must have needed a few bucks when this was being filmed. Though everyone seems to be in trouble here, they have no problem avoiding the law until they want to be confronted by them.

All of that said, it is an enjoyable little cruise with no harm no foul. The ship interior shots are really neat, and for a brief moment in time you get that Arrrrrrrrh, me bucko feel.

Though by any standards, this film doesn't even attain average, I enjoyed it and will look at it again and again, maybe as the first billing in a double feature with "Port of Missing Girls" or "Woman Who Came Back" as the main feature. Definitely much better at two in the morning. That and your deck of "51" will get you through to dawn.
