Trivia

The Captain William Henry Hayes' nickname of "Bully", the name used for the Tommy Lee Jones character in this film, has two origins that have been put forward. The first is that it is derived from the Samoan language's "Bulli" which translates as evasive or elusive. The second, and more likely, is that it is a reflection of his bullying personality and character, where Hayes intimidated people including his crew, given his reputation of notoriety. See more »

Goofs

As Hayes and his crew stop Ben Pease in the streets of Samoa we see he is clearly surrounded. In fact people and Hayes' remaining crew cut off the escape route. However when Pease makes his escape away from Hayes, the crew and everyone that cut him off are standing to the sides of the road giving him a clear path. See more »

Quotes

Grand adventure.
7 January 1999 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Nate and Hayes is a grand pirate adventure of a film. The chemistry between Tommy Lee Jones and Michael O'Keefe is perfect and the score to the film is sweeping and epic. Great pirate adventure, highly recommended.
