Trivia

The "St. Haag Yacht Club" in the docking and board game scene was shot at the Puerto del Rey Marina in Fajardo, on the east coast of Puerto Rico. The "yacht club" building is the Dock Center, located in the approximate center of the marina docks, built on pilings (of course), and bridging the main pier. See more »

Goofs

When everyone is starting put put the sails up on the boat, Captain Ron gives Ben his beer. In the shot immediately afterwards, Ben is seen in the background setting his beer down, and once again, in the shot after that, still holding Ron's beer. See more »

Quotes

Captain Ron: [telling how he lost his eye] Yeah, it happened when I went down off the coast of Australia.
Katherine Harvey: Your boat sank?
Captain Ron: No, no, no, no. Not my boat. My boss's boat. Yeah, we hit this reef. Huge son-of-a-bitch. Ran the whole coast.
Katherine Harvey: Wait. The Great Barrier Reef?
Captain Ron: You've heard of it, huh? Smart lady.

Hey Swab...go check out this movie.
5 December 2001 | by (Camp Crystal Lake) – See all my reviews

Kurt Russell is one of those actors that can play a variety of roles, & get away with it. Action, drama, & comedy. He must of been thinking of Jack Burton from 'Big Trouble In Little China' & but some of that into this movie. 'Captain Ron' is a great movie! The plot is simple, & so is the movie. That is what make sit so much fun. Yes, most of the movie is translucent, but it works so well. Kurt Russell shines as Capt. Ron Rico, who has been hired by the Harvey family to be the drive their boat from a Carribean Island to Miami, FL. While he bumbles from one scene to the other, Capt. Ron manages to be successful in the end. All of this makes Martin Harvey(Martin Short) furious, while his family loves Capt. Ron. Lots of laughs.
