Movie Makes fun of overeducated, pampered snobby critics
23 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Critics hate this film because they see so much of themselves in the protagonist: A character who spends his whole overeducated, over-pampered life sneering at every one and every thing else, the self-appointed know it all who mocks everything but produces nothing.

The protagonist is a critic, and the story makes fun of the protagonist.

It was interesting and satisfying to see the protagonist's fate... and I laughed the whole way through.

Summary: Unfortunately, people can't make a movie that trashes your run of the mill critic, and still hope for a good review.

If you are a critic know it all, you'll hate "Cabin Boy". If you have an actual sense of humor you'll love it.

Happiness guaranteed: That's what cabin boy is to me.
