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 »
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 »
I have been a loyal fan of Chris Elliott since his early appearances on
Letterman. This movie is typical of what happens when Elliott is given creative control -- wry, warped humour delivered in such a deadpan manner that you
don't know whether he is laughing at himself or if he really is a simp. This movie has given me countless hours of debate with fans and non-fans, as I have only encountered one other person who enjoyed Cabin Boy. We often lament Chris
Elliott's underrated genius and dream of the day when Cabin Boy takes its
rightful place in film history as a classic. Hard to believe its already been ten years since its release and I still crack up every time I watch it. Only thing that could top it would be a sequel -- Passion of the Cabin Boy, perhaps?
