Trivia

The film's opening prologue states: "Once upon a time, some colonial outposts of Europe's great powers were ruled by villainous governors who stole the freedom and wealth which rightfully belonged to the people. Such was the tragic condition in Jamaica in seventeen eighteen under the cruelty of the acting governor, Lord Durant. The dungeons of his dark stone fortress cried with the voices of those who stood in his way. At the time, adventurous pirates sailed the waters of the Caribbean. Often, they were enemies of the tyrants and heroes of the people. Captain Ned Lynch was one of the most famous of these Swashbucklers...". See more »

Goofs

When Nick and Ned are having their limerick competition, Nick uses the word 'Khaki'. This word is from the Hindustani language and only entered in the English language in the 1840s, through the British Army in India. Given 'Swashbuckler' is set in the 1700s, he could not have known the word. See more »

One of My MOST Favorite Guilty Pleasures
17 March 2001 | by (Redondo Beach, California, USA) – See all my reviews

I LOVE this movie. I don't care how terrible critics might think it is. It's fun, romantic, entertaining, an old fashioned yarn. It came out right after Robert Shaw made a "splash" in Jaws, and he's fabulous as usual. Don't let them make you feel guilty about loving this movie. It's great.
