Boring family movie
27 March 2014 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

Although "Throw Out the Anchor!" was rated G, a rating that does seem appropriate except maybe for the most prudish of viewers, I don't see any kind of audience for this movie. Kids will be bored stiff, because there's hardly any action and the movie is endless talk, talk, talk. For that matter, parents will find the movie a tough slog as well. Though they may have more patience than their kids, more likely than not they will find it boring as well. They will also find additional issues with the movie, such as its rock bottom production values and the dodgy level of acting. Also, the level of comedy during the lighter portions of the movie is extremely simple-minded slapstick. In short, the negative of the movie should have been attached to the anchor before the anchor was thrown out.
