Storyline

A world unlike any you've ever known! Matt Spencer, a workaholic attorney and single father, is struggling to raise his three rebellious teenagers in the wake of his wife walking out on him. Chris Spencer, Matt's eldest son, is a handsome, over-achieving, straight-laced 18-year-old who is angry with his father about the divorce, even though his mother is the one who left. Daughter Claudia is a typical 16-year-old mall rat with too much time on her hands and the good looks that usually spell trouble. Youngest son Adam is a hip 13-year-old with a big mouth and a smart-alec attitude to go along with it. In an attempt to bring his family together again, Matt charters a sailboat for a 10-day surprise cruise to the Bahamas. The kids, selfishly un-excited about the trip, try to talk their father out of it, but he is steadfast in his determination to spend some quality family time together. Upon landing in Florida, the Spencers arrive at the dock to board the Wind Dancer, a beautiful 90-foot ... Written by Brendan Hill

Too much fun to pass up
13 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Escape from Atlantis is the best of the bad. I myself have seen it a few times just because I love it so much. Is the storyline predictable? Yes! Is the acting shabby? Absolutely! Are the characters clichéd? You betcha! Is it more fun to watch than most other crappy sci-fi/fantasy movies? Oh yeah! This is not the kind of movie you watch if you want to be dazzled by special effects or blinded by brilliance, but it is the kind of movie you watch if you just want to have some fun laughing at an incredibly shoddy piece of work. When one watches this movie, one has to wonder if the writer of the screenplay and the director deliberately made it so bad. If you don't appreciate this movie for its crap value, you don't get the joke.
