Re: Dead Calm - the movie

Notice the only person who didn't like the movie with a nude 23 old Nicole Kidman is a woman... If it was Clooney the women would have loved it.

Re: Dead Calm - the movie

Now you gotta love the man overboard retrieval technique. No need to actually stop the boat. Nicely done!

Re: Dead Calm - the movie

People unfamiliar with sailing thinks this is a realistic movie while at the same time scoffing at Captain Ron which in my opinion is one of the most realistic movies and hella funny!

How about the latest Viagra commercial. Where the high-tech block falls off the boom. In the end after a clever repair the boat is shown coasting along with I'd swear a back winded jib. Did he heave to as a result of the Viagra? Off topic kinda sorry

Heh-heh. I forgot about that beauty.

She does the 1-handed grab and hoist about 7:30 of that same clip I posted.

The chick obviously rocks.
