* WalkingShirtlessScene: Not only does Captain Ron spend most of the movie without a shirt on, he even spends a couple of scenes wearing only a snug little Speedo, and another scene shows him in his underwear, a pair of itty-bitty briefs. Good thing he has the physique for it, [[BrainBleach otherwise]]...

* HeelRealization: Captain Ron when Ben tells him that compared to him, their dad is a screw up.
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: Captain Ron says that he has broken his leg and that "the bone is about to push through the skin". Yet he limps just fine and barely has any reaction to it. It's a sign that [[spoiler:he's actually faking it to help Martin be the hero for his kids.]]




to:

** Caroline spends most of the film in either a bikini top or tiny halter top.


* FunWithHomonyms: Martin is dismissive when Captain Ron tries to warn him to look out for gorillas on an island, claiming they aren't a native species. He soon gets captured by a small ragtag army - Ron had been saying "guerrillas".

* TheAllegedCar: In this case, the alleged boat. It's in extremely poor condition despite the fact it previously was owned by Clark Gable. Probably because it's been in storage for decades.

Added DiffLines:

* CaptainsLog: Martin starts a log of their adventures, but his jealousy of Captain Ron's easy charm with his family leads to it becoming just a book of complaints about everything Ron does. After Ron saves them from the pirates, Martin starts a new log which is much less crabby and notes that the previous log mysteriously got destroyed by the pirates.


* ShowerOfAwkward: When Captain Ron catches Martin and Katherine "playing 'hide-the-salami' in the shower." [[TheCloudcuckoolanderHasAPoint He rightly reminds them that the boat carries a finite supply of fresh water]].

First, she’s getting engaged to her boyfriend when not even out of high school (said boyfriend is practically tailor-made to be her parents’ worst nightmare), then she’s sneaking off with every boy she meets on every island they visit, coming back from one such adventure with a tattoo. She’s also uninterested in pulling her weight on the boat.

to:

%%* * EyepatchOfPower: Captain Ron.Ron, though he's quite a departure from Kurt Russell's [[Film/EscapeFromNewYork other one-eyed role]].
* CloudCuckooLander: Captain Ron is a hard-drinking, womanizing, ex-Navy sailor-for-hire of questionable skill and judgment. Of course, he turns out to be right surprisingly often...
** When questioned about maritime right-of-way rules, he dismissively says, "Don't worry, they'll get outta the way." He learned this lesson from having previously been a helmsman on USS ''[[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Saratoga_(CV-60) Saratoga]]''. That their 40-foot sailboat is decidedly smaller than an aircraft carrier evidently hasn't occurred to him.
