The phrase "This is why we can't have nice things" comes to mind.

When i saw this thread title I was hopeing it was another Robert Downey Jr. movie. Those movies werent bad. This looks like a pass to me as I don't find Will Ferrel very funny. But others must as he keeps getting movie roles.

Right off the bat I can tell something is off — why is Victoria the Queen in the time of Titanic?

Another two questions we should be asking are "Where are the lifeboats?" and "What happened in the 1st Class Smoking Room to cause an explosion!?!" o_O

Maybe it's just a regular ocean liner in the movie and it just physically looks like the Titanic.

Saw the movie yesterday. It was awful and a number of people got up and left. The film is set in the 1880's and we see the Titanic docked in London. Queen Victoria is aboard the ship and the famous detective duo have to stop a bomb from exploding. We are shown several 'what if' scenarios which show the bomb exploding, but the Queen is saved by Dr. Watson who throws the bomb out of the window and saves the Queen. Such a terrible film. The only good thing about the Titanic scene is that we see a cameo appearance of Titanic actor Billy Zane. He boards the Titanic and jokingly says "Where is my bathroom in this canoe?" I would give the film a 2/10. Not even worth getting on DVD. I would wait for the Titanic scene to appear on youtube next year.

After reading your review and seeing the critical consensus over on Rotten Tomatoes it definitely sounds like one to avoid. Having the Titanic 30 years early seems like a minor issue compared to the film as a whole.

I'm sorry Aaron you had to sit though it while others were walking out.

As for the film, the only other comedy to have the Titanic berthed in London was Family Guy, and that one was terrible (in my opinion).

The Titanic also appears berthed in Cherbourg in a French film called 'The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec.' It is much more tasteful and well made, so this little inaccuracy might be forgiven.

Cherbourg


I believe a number of Titanic passengers had explored the pyramids of Egypt before they sailed on the Titanic. This French film reminds me of their journey.
