Handsome Guerilla: The American girls are very... what's the word? Superficial.
Caroline Harvey: Yeah. God, I really hate that. Like, I'm into different cultures and different ways of doing things. Like we're watching "Mr. Ed" on TV the other day, and he's speaking French, or something.

What happened to this film??
12 February 2000 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Captain Ron was released in September of 1992, it had to compete with movies like Encino Man, Lethal Weapon 3 and The Crying Game. I think this may be the reason that it did so poorly at the box office. I saw the film when it was initially released in theaters, I thought it was great! Very possibly the funniest film of 1992... So why has it disappeared? Why has no one ever heard of it. Go rent the video, or better yet BUY IT, judge the movie for yourself, and then write Disney, Touchstones parent company and tell them that this movie really deserves more than just a lousy $10 video release, when is it gonna be on DVD? How about a CD soundtrack? What went wrong??
