Geena Davis and Matthew Modine are hunting hidden treasure.
WHY WE PICKED IT: This notorious box office bomb delivered fun on the high seas almost a decade before ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ reignited the genre.
Second-generation pirate Morgan Adams inherits her late buccaneer father's ship, crew, and one third of a map to treasure buried on Cutthroat Island. After finagling the purchase of well-educated slave, William Shaw, to translate the Latin map, Morgan sets out to find the missing map pieces and locate the loot – before her devious swashbuckling uncle, Dawg Brown, beats her to it.
