When Kurt Russell was cast, John Carpenter was nearly called in to direct. Carpenter admits that he would have said yes, but mostly for the excuse to shoot in the Caribbean. 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 »
Light hearted comedy about a family trying to control their life on a sailboat.
This is wonderful movie, one of my favorite movies of all time! A family inherits a sailboat and decides to flee the urban rat race. They don't realize that they will have to over come many hurdles, including aspects of them selves, Capt. Ron, the boat and the environment.
The daughter plays a teenager that is simultaneously apathetic and nearly out of control. The son is a kid who hasn't taken an interest in life until now. The father assumes that Capt. Ron can't know anything while the family begins to believe that it's the father who doesn't know anything.
This movie was one of the triggers to me moving to a tropical island to live, oh and to buy a boat.
