I am a huge fan of the original 1972 classic......They ruined, butchered the original. How this ever got approved is beyond me? They should of retitled this "The Love Boat: The Sinking"......I mean that is what I felt like I was watching. You get a bunch of actors that should of put on The Surreal Life and put them in this......There is nothing about this remake that even comes close to the original. The whole entire movie was rewritten......Not even a tidal wave, guys come on.......Oh and the terrorist plot how genius....NOT!! This piece of garbage is laughable and a disgrace......I would rather sit and watch Barney by myself for two hours! I have never seen a worse remake of a movie. The remake of Carrie came close but this takes the cake!!!! This is S.S. Disaster!!!!! Way to go!!!

I was a big fan of the 1972 movie. I was to young to have seen it in the theater, but have watched it on TV. I'm sorry to say the remake is awful. The acting is bad, A bomb blows up and capsizes the luxury liner is just laughable. The original film was capsized by a title wave which is more believable. The TV version was 3 hours including commercials. Why ? The remake has some of the same characters as the original and even some of the same scenes, minus the terrorists. This remake has many has been stars like Guttenburg, Hauer, Weller to name a few. I hope the 2006 version (Poseiden) is much better. The special effects were pretty good for TV. The liner upside was pretty fake though.
Rent the original, its great.
By accident, we rented this instead of the original. I couldn't imagine this movie being any worse. Several scenes and characters have been added, which have no real value. There's the guy from police academy in some awful "divorce" angle. A fake ex-American idol contestant sings a whole song for no reason. There's a kids who's not just annoying, but is making humorous handi-cam films with the help of the zany crew. And oh yeah, there's a terror attack, because the dead horse is only half-beaten by TV standards, I guess. There's also a creepy old crewman who's trying to get with some teenager, and the priest in this film is a far weaker character/actor.
Add in some of the most un-inspired editing, music, and dialogue imaginable and that sums up the worst of this movie. I'd rather draw a picture of boat upside-down and stare at it for two hours rather than repeat watching 10 min. of this film.
