Problem Solved!!!! Really it wasn't that hard, 19 July 2009
Author: jcbourne from New Zealand

I can't believe I haven't seen this response in any post thus far. It stands out like dog's balls.

1. FutureMovies (UK review site) states that the yacht was anchored on a reef. However,I did not see any anchor warp streaming from the bow. Did anyone else?

2. The yacht had to be anchored for the plot to work - for as a yachtsmen who has sailed offshore, I can tell you that ocean currents are quite strong and the yacht would have drifted without any wind. It certainly would have drifted when the weather turned foul and anyone in the water would not have kept up with it. Finally, the yacht has high topsides which creates windage in itself causing the yacht to drift even in very light breeze. So let's assume the yacht had to be anchored to give the plot the slightest credibility.

3. With the yacht anchored - ALL SOMEONE HAD TO DO WAS CLIMB UP THE ANCHOR WARP AND CLIMB ABOARD> IT'S THAT SIMPLE!!! Hello, go figure!!!

4. If the yacht was not anchored, there would be no plot because in 'REALITY' - 'REAL LIFE', the yacht would have definitely drifted and they would have all been kaput, lost at sea, drowned or whatever.

The movie plot was so dumb and so seriously flawed - Hollywood at it's worst. I turned it off as soon as I realized this movie was going to end without any of those idiots on board figuring this out.

The only true to life fact in this movie is that the worlds oceans are filled with idiots such as these characters who cost the coast guard and tax payer millions of dollars a year trying to find them when they do dumb stuff at sea.

Was the above review useful to you?
