Trivia

The name "Captain Greybar" is an inside reference to the building where Chris' father, Bob Elliott, and his radio and stage partner Ray Goulding, had their "Bob and Ray" offices for many years (The well-known "Graybar Building" in NYC). Bob & Ray also had a company called GEG, which (long story short) had to be changed from Goulding-Elliott-Graybar to the differently spelled Goulding-Elliott-Greybar, under threat from the Graybar Building's lawyers. So, Chris gets the last laugh on those lawyers with the name of the tyrannical captain. See more »

The Odyssey for Stoners
23 January 1999 | by (toronto, canada) – See all my reviews

Fuse literary themes like Candide and the Odyssey with Chris Elliott's relentless style of moronic comedy and you have a movie people will either love or hate. A wicked cast and classic special effects make up for a somewhat lethargic pace in action, but the booty of comedy in this movie make up for the long nights at sea. Watch it, own it, love it. I do.
