  • Cabin Boy
  • If there is something that I love, it is an epic. Cabin Boy is just that, an epic journey of a young idiot sailing home after graduating finishing school. The movie starts out in a beautifully exclusive school, then moves on to the breathtaking hills and shores of what is probably New Zealand, where our bumbling hero accidentally boards the wrong boat. Apparently, because of these two scenes, the budget went into the red, and they had to scale back. For the rest of the film the backdrop is what appears to be a bed sheet, with a red light behind it, while a couple of guys shake it around. Our breathtaking shores become the YMCA swimming pool. Honest to God, you can see the drains. The special effects become claymation monsters, and apparently, they cut the actors wages, because I think they stopped caring too. Not too many one liners in this review, because well....I guess there wasn't much to work with. This movie is really bad. I loved it.

    Memorable Moments
