Goofs

There are so many nautical mistakes in this film that it would take hours for me to list them all. For one, there are no navigation lights (masthead, port and starboard) visible during the shot of the ship sailing at night. Also, the ship's officers and naval crew do not use the proper radio vocabulary when using the communication devices (for example, the word "repeat" is not used. The proper words are "Say Again"). I could go on and on. Did they even have any seafaring advisers for this film? See more »

Quotes

Admiral Jennings: It's a miracle that anyone made it.
Suzanne Harrison: Hard to see any of this as a miracle. A bloody mess is what it is!

Poseidon adventure 2005
22 November 2005 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

I thought the movie was nothing like the first. It made no sense and didn't hardly related to the first one at all. Time was really wasted in the making of this movie. The actors did a wonderful job, they just had a bad script. Quit wasting time on remakes and come up with your ideas for movies. People are looking for new ideas. Not somebody else's ripped off ideas for movies. Hardly any of the characters from the first movie. If your going to rip off someones movie idea get it right. At least get it right. This director and writer better find a different profession. Becauce this isn't the one for them. I feel bad for the actors in in the first movie.
