Storyline

A sea captain with a vessel not deemed sea worthy by the ship inspectors assembles a motley crew to sail along the path of Captain Scoresby, a sea captain who sailed from Whitby in northern England to the Arctic in 1791. His crew includes bickering sisters, an Australian hitchhiker who is hiding from his girl friends, and the seaman's confidante who runs a local trailer park. Putting the ship to sea, the group is pursued by the authorities. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Unashamedly sentimental, but thoroughly enjoyable
7 May 1999 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This is a typical British film. Full of pathos, self-deprecating humour and a very strong supporting cast. It's unashamedly sentimental, but thoroughly enjoyable, and anyone going to see it cannot fail to like it.

A sharp script by Jack Rosenthal and nicely directed, although the denoument of the film is never in doubt. Sadie Frost looks gorgeous as ever, and Bob Hoskins does his usual turn as a lovable rogue
