Fabulous sailing scenes! Wish I knew how they photographed them. Skarsgard is perfect. Jennifer Gray is beautiful and smart. Modine super. The plot of kids who will try to win America's Cup is silly, but, heck, this is entertainment not a history lesson. Flying scenes are tops. Humor is here -- the works.

Admittedly, I am a rabid sailing fan but this movie being one of the few dedicated to sailing and probably the only one dedicated to the America's Cup has it all; Great sailing, a plausable story line, and a superb soundtrack. I own very few movies and this is one of them. Everything that happened on the water has actually happened in an America's cup whth the possible exception of ''ignoring'' the rules in the last race. Even the basic premice of loosing and then winning the next cup contest happened in 1983 and 1987, just ask Dennis Conner. Watch it. If you are a sailor, own it. If you are an America's cup fan, own the DVD, You won't be sorry

Beautiful movie - the sailing scenes are great. But, why isn't there a soundtrack to be found? If anyone knows where to find one, please let me know.

I have this movie on LD (Laser Disc). Would have updated to Blu Ray but not available. Had to get on DVD LD is gone now.

If you have ever sailed with the one you love, or have raced with those that love the competition, this movie has it both. The story is a bit long, but the racing sequences are superb! Incredible photography and music has you right in the race. Matthew Modine and Jennifer Grey do a fine job.

Yes, the sailing footage is beautiful and the best I've ever seen. But to enjoy the film I suggest you turn off the sound and skip past everything but the saling scenes. While the film is beautiful they play very fast and loose with such little things like 'rules'. Cliff Robertson has said how horrible his direction was. After building a character for the length of the film suddenly being directed to play a scene completely opposite of all he'd done up until then. And no, this is not historical in any sense. If you want the history of recapturing the cup you'd do well to read Dennis Connor's book ''Comeback; My Race for the America's Cup.''

If it weren't for the fabulous sailboat racing visuals, this movie would be just OK. But the racing scenes are exceptionally well done, putting the viewer right on deck for America's Cup races and others. Anyone who has ever raced a sailboat will feel the blood pumping.

this is a movie for all sailors alike. i teech sailing and my students enjoy this movie asmuch as i do. the racing scenes rivel those of todays americas cup shots and it is a true story about denis connor. it is just a really neat sailing movie. i would recoment it evan if you dont sail.

If you are a die-hard sailor, or even remotely related to the wonderful sport of sailing, this is a ''must-see'' movie. The sailing scenes are incredible. This is a the closest thing to actually sailing the AC. The love plot, a little cheesey I will grant you, but a great movie none the less.

Wonderful scenes of sailing. Shows the uninitiated what sailing is all about.

If you race sail boats this movie is for you. Great footage of big boat racing, what it really needs is a letterbox DVD release. The Intl 14 stuff is a little cheesy but worth seeing. The love story is standard Hollywood, they could have cut that and put more sailing footage in.
