Captain Jack (Hoskins) is an irascible and irresistible sea captain with a strong antipathy for authority, a fondness for the ladies and an obsession with his predecessor, Captain Scoresby, who sailed from England to the Artic in 1791. Incensed by greater respect for Captain Cook, Jack is determined to retrace Scoresbys 1,300 mile voyage and install a plaque in his heros honor.
He sets sail in a boat not considered seaworthy by the authorities with an oddball crew of nautical novices, all of whom have some reason to leave home port. For a voyage such as this, "success" could very well be the trip itself.

Bottom line: Admitedly I'm being overly critical here. I did give it -3 Stars- afterall. It's not that it's a bad film, it just doesn't succeed at elicting that "feel good" emotion from the audience that it's shooting for. 'Captain Jack' is watchable but if given the opportunity for a repeat cruise with the good captain I believe I'd let this one set sail without me.
