One of Kurt Russell's best performances!!!
29 July 2005 | by moviefan1725-1See all my reviews

Kurt Russell is THE man! One of the most under appreciated actors in Hollywood, Russell takes what would have been a run of the mill comedy and makes it HILARIOUS!!! Captain Ron Rico is about as laid back as laid back can be. He's an ex Navy boat driver whose been through one too many squalls, not to mention a stint in rehab. A treasure chest of worldly knowledge, he's never at a loss to relate his exploits even when it comes to his glass eye, "Won it in a crap game a few years back." At first glance he's a man you wouldn't trust to float an inner tube, but as he proves to Martin Short throughout the course of the movie, he's "far more cunning than first suspected." After all, you gotta love a guy who as he's sipping beer with Short's young son, he tells the young lad that he just caught his parents "Playing hide-the-salami in the shower." I crack up just writing about it. But besides Russell's stellar performance, there's BEAUTIFUL locations and photography, a catchy reggae soundtrack, and enough laughs from the rest of the cast to make this a most enjoyable film to pop a bowl of popcorn to and enjoy with the family. As for me....I wanna go out drinkin' with Captain Ron!
