Did You Know?

Goofs

When Ernest Borgnine is piloting his tug and approaching the Vega, he signals the Vega with three short blasts on the horn. According to US Coast Guard Navigation Rule 34, three short blasts on the horn indicates "I am operating astern propulsion" (backing up). He is obviously going forward and should have sounded 1 short blast to indicate "I intend to leave you on my port side", 2 short blasts to indicate "I intend to leave you on my starboard side" or the danger signal, which is 5 short blasts, if the other vessel was not following the navigation rules.

Entertaining
15 January 2007 | by ggnutscSee all my reviews

Certainly not a high end movie, but quite watchable as far as I'm concerned. I purchased this for a whole $3.88 at Walmart so my expectations weren't that high, but it entertained us for and evening and it was a lot better than some of the stuff that I might have found channel surfing. Some movie snobs might scoff at this but I felt like it was better than a multi-million dollar movie that uses tons of special effects, but has nothing else. This movie reminded me of the kinda shows I saw at the theater when I was a kid when they showed free movies during the holiday season. It brought back those feelings and I liked it!
