Prohibition-era rum-runners Gene Hackman and Burt Reynolds partner with cabaret singer Liza Minnelli after her smuggler husband is killed, seizing a golden opportunity to enrich themselves by way of bootlegging in Southern California using the titular boat to transport their cargo up and down the coast. The mob doesn't take kindly to the trio's operation, and much comic chaos ensues. Stanley Donen ("Singin' in the Rain") directs; John Hillerman, Geoffrey Lewis co-star. 118 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English; featurettes; theatrical trailers; TV spots.
