    Must See

    A great movie every time I see it. Never fails to make me laugh and there are some lines in this movie that my brother and I quote to each other and still is funny after all these years ("Always stand clear of the ladder Boss!"). If you are even the slightest fan of Kurt Russell I can assure you that this movie will become a favorite- two thumbs up!

    A Hilarious Family Hit!

    I found Captain Ron a hilarious family movie. Kurt Russell made me laugh everytime he opened his mouth! I would recommend this movie for a family to watch.

    It was OK, yet disappointing

    I am almost a teen and writing this. Sure, there were quite a few funny bits, but when they were in the shower together, it totally ruined the rest of the movie. I laughed plenty, but I don't highly recommend it .

    Captain Ron. Woo-Hoo. A Wild Ride on the Sea of Hilarity!

    I just recently viewed this cinematic classic for the 12th time. Like the previous 11 times, Captain Ron did not fail to produce laughter, tears and an overall feeling of goodness in me. Kurt Russell, as always, delivers and amazing performance that is not properly recognized. Despite being stiffed by the Academy, Russell coins the legendary phrase, 'Get me another brewsky, Swab!' Amazing. I strongly urge you to see this movie. Also, do not see Carrot Top's, Chairman of the Board. It is awful and not worthy of anyone's time.
