Captain Ron [DVD] [1992]

Thom Eberhardt directs Kurt Russell and Martin Short in the family comedy Captain Ron, which comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround. There are no subtitles, but the soundtrack is closed-captioned. There are no supplemental materials of any consequence, making this inexpensive Disney/Buena Vista release difficult to recommend to anyone but a fan of the performers involved in the production.

Synopsis


Captain Ron
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

    Kurt Russell is Great!

    'Captain Ron' is not necessarily what I would consider a high quality movie. It is however, full of several riotous scenes with Kurt Russell, who shines throughout. Martin Short is also a very funny actor, but his part in this movie is more serious than it probably should have been. Not a great movie, but still recommended, especially to those who haven't seen it.

    We actually watched this movie twice. It was humerus. However, there were some scenes that made it inappropriate for a younger audience. Too bad that a few scenes made us donate this movie. We did not feel it was appropriate for young children.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Enjoyed seeing this again. It is a silly and light movie, but Kurt Russell is humorous and makes Captain Ron the type of guy most of us would want to be if we could get away with it. Great dvd price of $3.99, too.

    I bought this on a whim from the reduced price bin, largely because the boat in this movie is so beautiful. It is another character. The jokes are mostly funny and I enjoyed having it in my collection.

    Have this in vhf format, but wanted it in dvd so we could watch it on the boat. Looked online for it, but balked at the shipping costs. Found it in a reduced bin at Best Buy for $3.99 and snatched it up.

    This will never be considered a classic but it is still a movie that holds up. It is still funny and entertaining after all this time.
