unrealistic time lapse
22 August 2001 | by (FL) – See all my reviews

The movie was quite cute, typical Disney-type movie. Joey and Andy take a trip to Australia and due to false advertisement and being pick-pocketed, they end up on a broken down ship passing off as a luxury charter boat. Needless-to-say, they run into all sorts of trouble and end up being shipwrecked. Pirates are chasing them and they have to rely on each other. Well, the REALLY unrealistic part is how the time passes, the days are flashed on the screen as the movie goes on, the boys are always clean and never seem to need a shave. Joey and Matt both have perfect goatees and even after 11 days look as clean and impeccable as the day they landed in Australia. Lots of goofs, be on the look out, but watchable.
