Trivia

Some characters and rooms were renamed to pay homage; the ship's captain was named Captain Gallico for writer Paul Gallico on whose novel the story is based; the ship's doctor was named Dr. Ballard for 'Bob Ballard (I)' leader of the 1985 expedition that discovered the remains of the Titanic; the ship's lounge named Jak's Lounge for Jak Castro president of The Poseidon Adventure Fan Club.

Goofs

The hole that is blown in the ship could not have turned the whole ship over. It would only have sunk the way Titanic had done, only by the stern instead of the bow. See more »

Quotes

Badawi: You'll die with me.

Mediocrity upside down
3 June 2006 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

...but a long way from Hell, last year's Hallmark mini-series version of The Poseidon Adventure doesn't live down to its reputation. Aside from Peter Weller's every other line being "I'm Captain Paul Gallico" or "This is your captain, Paul Gallico" just in case anyone doesn't get the joke or Steve Guttenberg (looking increasingly like a failed attempt at cloning Albert Brooks) constantly endangering everyone's life to stop them to tell him how much he likes them with what he thinks is his best sincere voice but which really sounds like someone trying to have a conversation while having a particularly difficult bowel movement, there aren't many unintentional laughs to be had.

Rutger Hauer simply looks bewildered, as if he wandered onto the wrong set by mistake and somebody gave him a hat and a dog collar, Sylvia Syms looks alarmingly like Shelley Winters, C. Thomas Howell is starting to look even more alarmingly like an ageing 80s porn star and only Bryan Brown and Adam Baldwin look like they're having any fun. The spirit of Irwin Allen is briefly resurrected near the finale: sadly, it's not the Allen of The Towering Inferno or the original Poseidon but the one who spent nearly two reels having people very, very slowly cross a bridge one by one for the last two reels of When Time Ran Out.
