After he inherits a yacht, Chicago businessman Martin totes his family to the Caribbean to claim it. Not having any skill at boating, he hires long-haired, one-eyed low-life Captain Ron, to pilot the heap to Miami. During the journey, the somewhat inept sailor frequently loses his way while becoming a hit with everyone in the family--except Martin. This comedy features Martin Short, Kurt Russell, Mary Kay Place, with Benjamin Salisbury and Meadow Sisto as the two children. ~ Kristie Hassen, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The scenery is pretty but the movie never makes one wish to be in it."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"Forced Kurt Russell, Marty Short comedy."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"The physical comedy doesn't always work, but it is a pretty good effort as comedies go."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"If we lived in a just universe, Captain Ron, a farce filmed in and around the Devil's Triangle, would simply have vanished into another dimension."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"Kurt Russell is the only thing that makes this movie tolerable - and just barely at that."
‑ Brian Mckay,
"A real mess."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Director Eberhardt does nothing to elevate this from being anything other than a boring TV movie, and I'm sure if Kurt Russell wasn't in it, that's exactly where it would have premiered."
‑ Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine
"As bad as it sounds."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
