3 1/2 out of 5 stars. Between a slew of great cameos (Letterman had me howling), the odd sets at sea, the hallucinations, cast and most magnificent stupidity I ever bore witness to, I'm kind of kicking myself for not seeing Cabin Boy sooner. While it wasn't Get a Life, it was one hell of a consolation prize. If the words "fancy boy" don't make you giggle even in the slightest you should save yourself the time.
For a little more than the first half of the movie the idea is a lot better than the execution, but in the second half the quality of the jokes starts to catch up with the overall sensibility that was clearly there. Not quite on the level Freddy Got Fingered or Dirty Work but it deserves to be mentioned alongside them.
