Captain Ron (1992)

An American comedy directed by Thom Eberhardt, starring Kurt Russell, Martin Short and Mary Kay Place.
A business man who is bored with his life inherits a boat. He takes his family to pick it up and hires a captain to pilot it. The captain turns out to be more interesting than they expected and they have adventures together.
This is one of the movies that I grew up watching on TV. The plot is simple, but effective. The characters are stereotypical, yet entertaining. The audio and video reek of the time period. Upon my re-watch, I noticed that there is a continuity error in the scene with the argument over the guns. The father is shown holding them when they should be on the table. Whoops! Overall, sentimental value over actual quality. I rate this good.
