Did You Know?

Trivia

Some characters and rooms were renamed to pay homage; the ship's captain was named Capt. Gallico for writer Paul Gallico, on whose novel the story is based; the ship's doctor was named Dr. Ballard for Bob Ballard, leader of the 1985 expedition that discovered the remains of the Titanic; the ship's lounge was 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.

Makes "Beyond the Poseidon Adventure" Look Like "Titanic"
25 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Certainly from the school of "what the ...?", this production is ground-breaking on so many levels; terrible TV movies; needless remakes; mind boggling lack of logic; one dimensional characters; questionable casting of forgotten "C" listers; and how bad can Steve Guttenberg act - and now look?

I watched it because I love the original, and disaster movies in general. It was a chore to sit through the entire commercial-padded three hours. Wolfgang Peterson's "Poseidon" has only up to go from this trash.

One note: this is definitely NOT based on the original novel, as one piece of Trivia states. The ship of the novel flipped at dinner the day after Christmas; there were many more characters involved; a large number of passengers were rescued from the bow.

Not even fun in the bad movie realm. It stinks.
