Did You Know?

Trivia

The Warner Bros. has decided that the film's opening credits should be exactly the same as it was back in the 1960s when the ship actually got lost at sea to make it look more authentic & realistic as possible as one was watching to a documentary. See more »

Goofs

When they first enter the ship, Maureen (Julianna Margulies) jokingly says "my name is Julie, I'll be your hostess". Her character name is Maureen. This is the tagline of The Love Boat. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Greer: I can't hold her much longer, Murph. Port bow is heeling. She's taking on way too much water.

Crazy Credits

The opening logos are tinted brown, and the typical Warner Bros. logo is instead an intentionally chintzy 60s style logo. All this ties into the infamous cruise ship opening. See more »

forget that cruise you always wanted!
21 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

This films best bits are in the special effects and those moments when you jump out of your seat. The opening sequence lulls you into a false sense of calm, from then on its guess the scenario. The viewer is always two steps ahead of the actors but, for the most, grips you nevertheless. The special effects are especially good and the acting, although no top-notch stars are evident, is not bad. The end is a real twist. Better to watch this than many others I could mention, certainly worth the video rental and a pizza.
