When they are arrested at the Carnival in San Juan they are met at the jail by an official of the US Department of State. San Juan is in Puerto Rico, a US Commonwealth - the US State Department has no role in what would be a matter for local law enforcement.

Katherine Harvey: What are we going to do?
Martin Harvey: What can we do? Look around you. The sun is almost up. We are marooned in an unfriendly country. We have no luggage, no money, no passports and worse still... no reason or explination for even being here!
Katherine Harvey: But we have our boat.
Martin Harvey: No dear. If you'll look again, you'll notice that the pirates have our boat.
Caroline Harvey: Now, wait a minute. That's our boat. We should do something.
Martin Harvey: What are you saying?
Katherine Harvey: I think she's saying that if the pirates have our boat, we should take it back from them...

Don't worry Boss, it'll get outta our way...
29 December 1998 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorites. So much so I ran out and purchased it. I'm puzzled as to why this movie was not rated higher, it is at least on a parr with DAVE, NINE MONTHS, GROUNDHOG DAY and THE BIG LEBOWSKI. I liked all those movies and CAPTAIN RON is just as good. Kurt Russell's performance is hilarious and keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what he will do next. I would never have seen this movie based on the score it was given, lucky for me I saw the movie first. Terrific, hilarious and enjoyable entertainment. Don't miss this one.
