Now I know what you're thinking. "What could be stranger than a big fatass floatin' cupcake?" Heh. How about one that spits tobacco?

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 »
Movie Makes fun of overeducated, pampered snobby critics
Critics hate this film because they see so much of themselves in the protagonist: A character who spends his whole overeducated, over-pampered life sneering at every one and every thing else, the self-appointed know it all who mocks everything but produces nothing.
The protagonist is a critic, and the story makes fun of the protagonist.
It was interesting and satisfying to see the protagonist's fate... and I laughed the whole way through.
Summary: Unfortunately, people can't make a movie that trashes your run of the mill critic, and still hope for a good review.
If you are a critic know it all, you'll hate "Cabin Boy". If you have an actual sense of humor you'll love it.
Happiness guaranteed: That's what cabin boy is to me.
