Storyline

Amy, her husband James and their baby Sarah travel to Mexico to sail in the yacht of their reckless friend Dan with their common friends Zach and Lauren and celebrate the thirtieth birthday of Zach. They are introduced to Dan's girlfriend Michelle and they drink and recall moments of their past while navigating. Miles away from the shore, Michelle suggest to stop the yacht and swim in the calm water. Amy stays in the boat since she has a childhood trauma with ocean and Dan stays with her. Later, the irresponsible Dan pushes Amy overboard, falling with her in a prank. Once in the water, the group realizes that Dan forgot to put the embarkation ladder and the freeboard makes impossible to climb to the main deck of the yacht. With the baby alone in the boat and stranded in the open sea, they panic and their desperation lead them to a tragic fight for survival. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

The character and motivations of "Dan" were based off of childhood struggles of director Hans Horn and the fact that he was generally seen taking alone time in public swimming pools. This is the basis of the pivotal scenes in the movie where Dan is seen wading merely feet from his comrades, as Horn was known to frequently do. See more »

Goofs

At 1hr 2min 30 seconds into the film, a female character is floating face-up in the water. In the context of the story, she is supposed to be entirely nude. However, the camera inadvertently shows the skin-colored modesty patch that the actress is using to cover her right nipple. See more »

Problem Solved!!!! Really it wasn't that hard
19 July 2009 | by jcbourneSee all my reviews

I can't believe I haven't seen this response in any post thus far. It stands out like dog's balls.

1. FutureMovies (UK review site) states that the yacht was anchored on a reef. However,I did not see any anchor warp streaming from the bow. Did anyone else?

2. The yacht had to be anchored for the plot to work - for as a yachtsmen who has sailed offshore, I can tell you that ocean currents are quite strong and the yacht would have drifted without any wind. It certainly would have drifted when the weather turned foul and anyone in the water would not have kept up with it. Finally, the yacht has high topsides which creates windage in itself causing the yacht to drift even in very light breeze. So let's assume the yacht had to be anchored to give the plot the slightest credibility.

3. With the yacht anchored - ALL SOMEONE HAD TO DO WAS CLIMB UP THE ANCHOR WARP AND CLIMB ABOARD> IT'S THAT SIMPLE!!! Hello, go figure!!!

4. If the yacht was not anchored, there would be no plot because in 'REALITY' - 'REAL LIFE', the yacht would have definitely drifted and they would have all been kaput, lost at sea, drowned or whatever.

The movie plot was so dumb and so seriously flawed - Hollywood at it's worst. I turned it off as soon as I realized this movie was going to end without any of those idiots on board figuring this out.

The only true to life fact in this movie is that the worlds oceans are filled with idiots such as these characters who cost the coast guard and tax payer millions of dollars a year trying to find them when they do dumb stuff at sea.
