You gotta' learn the basics.
And, you gotta' be prepared.
I'm not talkin' Boy Scout prepared, I mean *big-time* prepared.
Well, prepared for any kind of *normal* accident...
This is the Caribbean, guys. "El Caribe." The Spanish Main. The land of hoo-doo and voodoo and all kinda' weird shit.

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 beautiful - makes me want to purchase a boat.
