Both of the cars that Captain Ron drives in the movie are missing a headlight on the same side as his missing eye. See more »
In Miami, Martin says (in voice over) that Captain Ron hadn't been in the US for more than seven years (something about a statute of limitations) but in another scene Ron said he'd been to Dollywood. At the time this movie came out (1992), Dollywood had only existed for six years. Prior to 1986, the park was named "Silver Dollar City". See more »

I was just moving it. I wasn't gonna drink it.

Ignore all the stuffed shirt, up-tight pinheads who couldn't loosen up if a gun was held to their collective heads. Treat this movie as it should be...FUN! This is the film that keeps us going through the winter until sailing season...then we take the video along on board.
Martin Short and Kurt Russell are TERRIFIC together, and Mary Kay Place? Who'd have known what a versatile actress she is, after all, most of us only had Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman to judge her by. The kids certainly do add a fine finishing touch to this hilarious crew.
This movie was not created to win an academy award, it was created to be lighthearted and fun and it far exceeded that goal.
