Trivia

The movie is based on a story by Paul Wheeler called "The Scarlet Buccaneer", this being what the picture was re-titled when released in Great Britain. See more »

Goofs

When Nick and Ned are having their limerick competition, Nick uses the word 'Khaki'. This word is from the Hindustani language and only entered in the English language in the 1840s, through the British Army in India. Given 'Swashbuckler' is set in the 1700s, he could not have known the word. See more »

Quotes

Nick: This girl is trouble, Ned. A pirate in love is like a fish out of water. Both are where they shouldn't be. But only the fish has sense enough to know it.

Enjoyable farce
10 May 2000 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

The reviewer of this film in Leonard Maltin's Guide called this a bomb. While it is not the greatest movie of all time, there are definitely enough moments that make the movie worth watching. It's probably Beau Bridges' best work, Avery Schrieber is wonderful, Geoffrey Holder is stupendous and to top it off, James Earl Jones is in the movie! That alone makes it not a bomb in my book. It's a fun, mindless movie that I found delightful.
