After fishing Trina out of the water and having his initial dialogue exchange with her, Nathanial summons the rest of the crew to meet her. Shortly after doing so, he refers to Trina by name despite Trina not having introduced herself to him in the previous scene. See more »
I overheard the captain saying it would be jolly-jack splendid to spend a fortnight or two in Hawaii
Yea... that sounds like the captain... you do good impressions

The DVD version (at least) omits the scene taking place right after Nathanial Mayweather makes a short, snide lecture on hats at the start of the film. In the scene, he proceeds to demonstrate how to tip a hat in a rather bizarre manner. See more »
No, not in the 'it's so bad it's good' way. I truly think it's one of the funnier comedies of the last 20 years or so. Perhaps a lot of it depends on how you feel about Chris Elliot to begin with. I think he's priceless. Used to love his old show Get A Life and have followed him ever since. The plot of this, kind of a twisted version of Captains Courageous, really doesn't matter. What's fun are the numerous sight gags, Elliot's constant barrage of sarcastic one-liners and the generally anything goes attitude of the whole enterprise. The ship's crew, filled with a number of character actors we're not used to seeing in this kind of thing, are a wonderfully sleazy bunch. David Letterman's hysterically amateurish cameo at the beginning is the stuff of legend. "Wanna buy a bunny?" Ha! OK Citizen Kane it ain't. I own that on DVD btw. Right next to it is Cabin Boy.
