How's that saying go? Glass houses are kettles or something like that? Anyone who can work a flare gun in the ocean ought to be able to read a tide book???

I'd stick with the comedy; that he clearly knows how to do.

Yeah...I gave up on the water anchors years ago. Could never get them to bite!
Let's hope he meant a sea anchor. It's been a while, but I don't remember that being one of the film's many issues.

C.K. also said he would never take his yacht out in the rain, and that if he did he would be out of his depth (as in the picture!).
Why Louis? Afraid the boat would get wet? A gale, maybe...but rain? Especially on that party barge. You'd have to go out of your way to even feel a drop!

Now that I know a stinkpotter didn't like the film, it's growing on me.

Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

Check out Louis CK on the Seinfeld show, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Most of that episode takes place on his boat and he tells the story of how he ran aground. It is funny. I think he was using All is Lost for material. He is not a sailor. Take his jokes for what they are- a bit.
As for the movie- wow! This thread has legs! More so than the movie.

This is really funny (and I didn't even like the Seinfeld show!). C.K. has moved up to a classy stink pot. The bit about the grounding is great. He says it was in the same boat, but it obviously wasn't. Funny anyway!

That's great!! Never saw this series before. All time keeper of a line from CK.... "I can't afford this yacht. You shouldn't buy a yacht, unless you can afford ten yachts".

That is actually a very concise way to express a true fact about "affording" a boat!

So we are watching All is Lost (my second time) right now. If you look closely, you can see the green flash when the sun sets....
