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.

Great family movie!
7 July 2006 | by chur474See all my reviews

I just rented this movie and i loved every second of it! I watched it with my dad because we both love treasure movies and this looked like a great family-type movie (and it is). There's no swearing or sex or any really violent scenes, but it's still very entertaining. It's a good movie for kids, but there are a lot of things in it that will make the older crowd laugh because it's so ridiculous (but still good), like "Have a cookie,".

The characters are really fun! there's lovable old Toby and his niece with an attitude, Smokey Jean. The main character, Danny, is a little awkward (and it's pretty funny to watch him sword fight)...i think the best character (for me) has to be 'Doc', who is a creepy, CREEPY man. I wouldn't want that crazy man after me with a sword, that's for sure...
