A seafaring birthday celebration takes a turn for the terrifying when the passengers of a luxury yacht forget to lower the automated ladder before jumping into the ocean for a playful swim. It was a perfect setting for a relaxing weekend at sea, but sometimes even the best-planned trips can take an unexpected turn for the worst. After diving into the ocean and realizing to their horror that they have forgotten to lower the safety ladder, the friends who had set out for a simple weekend getaway realize that they have become helplessly stranded in the middle of the ocean. The sheer sides of the yacht are impossible to climb, and now the group is growing increasingly desperate. As the grim reality of their helpless situation slowly begins to dawn on the doomed friends, hydrophobic Amy (Susan May Pratt) struggles to maintain her composure after realizing that her baby daughter Sarah is helpless and alone aboard the boat. Now treading water as panic begins to set in, the once inseparable friends fast begin to turn on one another as exhaustion begins to set in and the vast ocean threatens to swallow the entire group without a trace. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

I enjoyed this as much as the original Open Water. About 15 minutes in you start to realize the potential for something like this to happen, and if so, how you would feel. The feeling of desperation and helplessness grow as the movie progresses and you will find yourself telling yourself to always make sure of certain things if you are ever on a yacht in the middle of the ocean. Dont want to give too much away, but if there were sharks involved, id give it another half a star.
Unless you like boring depressing movies, skip this one. I did not see the first. This is probably just as bad. :-( Highlight? A ripped Cameron Richardson in a bikini. Pix can be found online. Skip this one.
Different from the original and not as frightening or realistic. Many production goofs and dumb characters that reduce credibility and thier odds of survival. Ending is a conversation starter. Rent Cube or Cubed (Cube #3, skip #2!) for a similar plot but more tension and action, but still no sharks.
