Plot: A family in Chicago inherits the yacht formerly owned by Clark Gable. They decide to sail it from the island of Ste. Pomme de Terre to Miami, and they sail with the assistance of Captain ... Runtime: 90 mins Release Date: 18 Sep 1992
Captain Ron was released in September of 1992, it had to compete with movies like Encino Man, Lethal Weapon 3 and The Crying Game. I think this may be the reason that it did so poorly at the box office. I saw the film when it was initially released in theaters, I thought it was great! Very possibly the funniest film of 1992... So why has it disappeared? Why has no one ever heard of it. Go rent the video, or better yet BUY IT, judge the movie for yourself, and then write Disney, Touchstones parent company and tell them that this movie really deserves more than just a lousy $10 video release, <more>
when is it gonna be on DVD? How about a CD soundtrack? What went wrong??
Light hearted comedy about a family trying to control their life on a sailboat. (by dukemarsh)
This is wonderful movie, one of my favorite movies of all time! A family inherits a sailboat and decides to flee the urban rat race. They don't realize that they will have to over come many hurdles, including aspects of them selves, Capt. Ron, the boat and the environment.The daughter plays a teenager that is simultaneously apathetic and nearly out of control. The son is a kid who hasn't taken an interest in life until now. The father assumes that Capt. Ron can't know anything while the family begins to believe that it's the father who doesn't know anything.This movie was <more>
one of the triggers to me moving to a tropical island to live, oh and to buy a boat.
One of Kurt Russell's best performances!!! (by moviefan1725-1)
Kurt Russell is THE man! One of the most under appreciated actors in Hollywood, Russell takes what would have been a run of the mill comedy and makes it HILARIOUS!!! Captain Ron Rico is about as laid back as laid back can be. He's an ex Navy boat driver whose been through one too many squalls, not to mention a stint in rehab. A treasure chest of worldly knowledge, he's never at a loss to relate his exploits even when it comes to his glass eye, "Won it in a crap game a few years back." At first glance he's a man you wouldn't trust to float an inner tube, but as he <more>
proves to Martin Short throughout the course of the movie, he's "far more cunning than first suspected." After all, you gotta love a guy who as he's sipping beer with Short's young son, he tells the young lad that he just caught his parents "Playing hide-the-salami in the shower." I crack up just writing about it. But besides Russell's stellar performance, there's BEAUTIFUL locations and photography, a catchy reggae soundtrack, and enough laughs from the rest of the cast to make this a most enjoyable film to pop a bowl of popcorn to and enjoy with the family. As for me....I wanna go out drinkin' with Captain Ron!
Don't worry Boss, it'll get outta our way... (by INDIANA-4)
This is one of my favorites. So much so I ran out and purchased it. I'm puzzled as to why this movie was not rated higher, it is at least on a parr with DAVE, NINE MONTHS, GROUNDHOG DAY and THE BIG LEBOWSKI. I liked all those movies and CAPTAIN RON is just as good. Kurt Russell's performance is hilarious and keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what he will do next. I would never have seen this movie based on the score it was given, lucky for me I saw the movie first. Terrific, hilarious and enjoyable entertainment. Don't miss this one.
No life raft can save you from Captain Ron! (by hamilton.fisher)
Few people like this film as much as my family and I, but we never miss it when it comes on TV. Perhaps that's because we've sailed the Caribbean and can relate to the misadventures of the characters in the movie. It's a terrific family film.Kurt Russell is hysterical as the one-eyed Captain Ron. Martin Short, for a change, plays the straight man. The rest of the cast are cute and funny. By the end of the movie, I actually found myself nostalgic for the sense of freedom and fun that only Captain Ron can steer you towards. I gave this movie a 9; don't throw me overboard for <more>
Hey Swab...go check out this movie. (by Reel_entertainment)
Kurt Russell is one of those actors that can play a variety of roles, & get away with it. Action, drama, & comedy. He must of been thinking of Jack Burton from 'Big Trouble In Little China' & but some of that into this movie. 'Captain Ron' is a great movie! The plot is simple, & so is the movie. That is what make sit so much fun. Yes, most of the movie is translucent, but it works so well. Kurt Russell shines as Capt. Ron Rico, who has been hired by the Harvey family to be the drive their boat from a Carribean Island to Miami, FL. While he bumbles from one <more>
scene to the other, Capt. Ron manages to be successful in the end. All of this makes Martin Harvey Martin Short furious, while his family loves Capt. Ron. Lots of laughs.
Kurt Russell is brilliant as Captain Ron, a rascal and part time sea captain adrift in the Caribbean. Many classic lines, and bits of dialogue throughout the film. This is one movie I enjoy watching repeatedly.
Family finds self (by christiantrainer)
Every time i want to laugh, when i see this movie on, i catch a glimpse. This movie is guaranteed to make you laugh. And Mary Kay Place is such EYE candy for us men. She represents the type of woman we men would ask to marry. Beautiful yet supportive of her family and children. However, Kurt Russell steals the show. This movie was a role reversal where Martin Short is the serious one and Kurt is the odd-ball. It excellently shows how an outsider can help indirectly to save a group from its own fears and inadequacies. anyway, you will laugh your head off. The location shooting was just <more>
