"Dead Calm" was good. "Waterworld?" Just kidding!!

"50 First Dates" had an underlying Formosa 51 theme, but was seen very little in the movie. "Double Jeopardy" had a sailboat scene or two in it. And Ashley Judd. Yum. "The Wedding Crashers" had some sailing in it, too.

The "four seasons" had some very real and funny sailing scenes.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

Wanna see a really rich guy crash a large, expensive racing cat...?

One small scene in The Thomas Crown Affair (w/Pierce Brosnan).

That is the "new" TCA and yes, that scene is worth the price of admission. I wish there were more sailing in that movie...
We just glossed over Captain Ron, that has to be in the list ah swab?

I can't think of the name of it, but there was a movie with John Candy where he races a boat that was a resturant and flies his pants as a sail.

Then there was a movie with Adam Sandler, 10 thousand first dates, they go sailing at then. That was an awesome boat.

Here is one I have not seen mentioned. It is called "DOVE" I believe with Gregory Peck about the sailing around the world by Robin Graham in a Cal 20 I believe but for estetics purposes they used a Ranger 23 in the movie. Hard to find and if anybody can find a copy of it I would love to know about it. Rick

Some sailing done in the film release of Mam Mia. A very nice yacht in that movie indeed. The Tai Mo Shan a 54 foot Ketch. Threads on this boat elsewhere here on Sailnet for the Mam Mia crowd.

"Summer Rental" a great comedy.
