A very funny movie (too bad it is not supposed to be)
I am certain Roy Scheider must have sacked his agent after this movie. In fact, this movie was such a disgrace to that any respectable agent would have left the industry to become a use car salesperson. Here is an actor nominated for two Academy Awards, reduced to lines like, `Be careful down there!'
But there are so many people to blame for this abomination that it seems an impossible task to find any one person to blame. Geri Barger claims `writing credits.' I assume this is taking credit for the order in which every cliché in the history of disaster films is placed. There was certainly no original dialogue in this movie. In fact, nothing in this movie was original.
As in any movie where a group of people are stranded, there is the loudmouth who wants to pick a fight. The inevitable bimbo girlfriend of the loudmouth because they always seem to get a girl. The woman who has had problems with men and the man who is in charge but has something haunting him from the past. And, let's not forget a genius geek teen that naturally has all of the answers that save the day.
But so much of this movie is so implausible and so poorly acted that it left me with tears of laughter.
