Product Description

A notorious buccaneer and a young reverend team up against the villainous ruler of a cutthroat gang.System Requirements:Runtime: 99 min.Format: DVD MOVIE Genre: ACTION/ADVENTURE Rating: PG UPC: 097360154948 Manufacturer No: 015494

The swashbuckling adventure, Nate and Hayes, is a long lost prototype for the more recent Pirates of the Caribbean. Morally-intact pirate, Captain Bully Hayes (Tommy Lee Jones), adopts Nathaniel Williamson (Michael O' Keefe), a reverend's son, to fight the ultra-villainous, slave-trading pirate crew headed by bounty hunter, Ben Pease (Max Phipps). Hayes makes a living illegally selling weaponry to native islanders, but that's nothing compared to the misdeeds his ex-friend Pease has lately undertaken. After Pease's shipmates pillage and kill everyone related to Nate and his fiancé, Sophie (Jenny Seagrove), Bully Hayes springs to action, motivated by his own romantic interest in Sophie, which develops as the plot thickens. Nate and Hayes looks and feels like Indiana Jones, with Disneyland-like island sets, Tommy Lee as the heroic, charismatic guy full of one-liners, and natives costumed with generic "native" bones through the nose, feathered headdresses, and grass skirts, making it easy to date this film according to Harrison Ford's classic. Plentiful sword-fighting scenes and shots of pirate ships sailing the open seas guarantee to please pirate buffs, though Nate and Hayes doesn't have the swarthy power of classics like The Black Swan, or those starring Errol Flynn. --Trinie Dalton

I had this on Beta years and years ago. Why this isn't out on DVD by now is beyond me. Any fan of Tommy Lee Jones should love it. Fans of adventure and pirate movies will enjoy it as well. Jones and Michael O'Keefe are a good team in this lighthearted action movie. The story, acting, music, and directing are borderline great. Unfortunatly it didn't catch on at the time of it's release and most of the following is people that lucked upon it on TV or at a rental store.
Any fan of movies like "The Three Musketeers" or "The Mask of Zorro" will probably enjoy it. A great adventure movie with a mix of Indiana Jones and Pirates. We can only hope with the release of movies like "Cutthroat Island" on DVD this won't be overlooked since it is a notch above several all ready available.It may not measure up to "Pirates of the Caribbean" but it still has a good deal of fun and action. There are no great special effects, just a good story and some decent acting.

This movie is a GOOD time waiting to happen. It's simply fun. Lots and lots of fun. More fun than a sack of badgers. Tons of action, great fight scenes, excellent humor, and fantastic cinematography. I'm surprised we don't get more movies set in the South Pacific (except, of course, for the deadly sharks, destructive typhoons, remoteness, lack of modern medicine, headhunters and posoinous everything; some people are just more easily deterred than I am, I suppose.)
If you're looking for a good, entertaining romp with great catch phrases and plenty of action, this is it. The music's pretty good, too, by the way. WHEN IS THIS COMING OUT ON DVD!?!?!?!?!? I must have it! Oblige me, Ben!

I really enjoyed Nate and Hayes from the first time I saw it. I got this movie on laser disc back in the early 80's when I was stationed in Pearl Harbor in the Navy. There was a Bar called "Bully Hayes Place" we used to go to. I made sure I had a copy of the movie so I could always show my friends. If you like Action and Adventure this is a can't miss. I have watched it with my friends over and over and was thrilled to be able to get it on DVD.

Fun! Is the word to describe this film. This film wasn't well known nor was it a big blockbuster, but it is fun to watch. Seeing Tommy Lee Jones younger and with a beard is different. This film was made in 1983 so don't expect big and flashy special effects. Even without big special effects this movie is still a fun adventure story.
Tommy Lee Jones plays American Pirate "Bully" Hayes. Nate is played by Michael O'Keefe, and he is studying to become a missionary. The story starts out in the South Pacific where we see Captain Hayes running guns to the natives. He is captured when the deal goes bad and is set to be hung shortly thereafter. The rest of the story is of Hayes telling a writer how he came to be imprisoned, sort of a Quentin Tarantino style before it became popular. The main story revolves around Hayes' adventure with the missionary man Nate and his Fiancée Sophie. Hayes' Nemesis, another pirate and former business partner Ben Pease, captures Sophie. The adventure consist of the usual story of this type, Nate and Hayes teaming up to get her back. This film is a complete adventure story filled with pirates, South Pacific natives, shrunken heads, early modern war ships, stuffy German sailors, swashbuckling sword fights, and other off the wall elements. I recommend this film to you if you are looking for something fun and a little different than the usual big flashy movies of today.

There are some movies that are meant only to be both hightly enjoyable escapist watching and great to eat popcorn while watching it. Nate and Hayes is one of those movies.
Nate and Hayes is about pirates in the South Pacific. Tommy Lee Jones plays Captain Nate "Bully" Hayes while Michael O'Keefe plays the starchy minister, Jenny Seagrove plays O'Keefe's wife and Australian actor Max Phipps is the evil Captain Ben Pease.
The action starts when Captain Pease raids the island right after the marriage ceremony for the minister and his wife. The minister is struck unconscious and his wife is taken prisoner by the evil Pease. The minister then joins forces with Captain Hayes who has his own score to settle with Pease and that's when the fun begins!
Nate and Hayes is a much underappreciated family film classic. Thrills and chills abound in this wild and wacky fun fest. This is a great film for all ages and for families in general.
Heartily recommended.

Although not a "Box Office Hit", this is one of my all time favorite movies. I have waited years for it's release on DVD. It takes place in the mid 1800's, while Pirates still prowl the South Pacific. The movie has something for everyone; A Love Story, A Comedy, Pirates, Cannibals, Swords, Cannons and an action adventure in a "Historically correct setting". Memorable performances by Tommy Lee Jones & Michael O'Keefe in the title rolls. A must have for anyone's DVD collection.

Yeah, I know that Disney's pirate movies are fun, but, in the back of your mind, you know that it's total fluff. And, really, Jack Sparrow is NOT the kind of guy you want your daughter dating.

Captain Bully Hayes (Tommy Lee Jones), on the other hand, may have been chopped up a bit by the harsh realities of the 19th Century and the dregs of colonialism in the South Pacific, but his moral compass still points true north.

One of this movie's amazing accomplishments is capturing the loose view of the law and the adventurous spirit that we associate with pirates, while still keeping the protagonists on the right side of morality.

I never heard of this movie when it was released in the 80s. I ran across it on VHS, and I've about worn that tape out. Now, at last, I can get it on DVD.
