Surprisingly uncliched - NOT ****ers Away!
14 March 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

First off - the colour was definitely faded and strange. I can see why someone thought it was colorized. But this didn't detract.

Seeing that it was an English comedy from this era about sailing, I anticipated "Carry-On type" cliches and stereotypes but was pleasantly surprised. A tiny bit of mystery, a bit of romance and a lot of authentic slogging around deck ...a pretty true picture of the "glamour of life on a sailing yacht". Lovely touches like the captain's wife and her tea no matter how dire the situation. A fun trip.
