From Wikipedia:Not a sailing movie per se but Master and Commander, a good tale, has the most realistic looking ocean shots.
We saw it at a downtown Seattle movie theatre. When we went in, we didn’t know if there were any other sailors in the audience. But then about 3/4 of the audience discovered the lack of an EPIRB at the same moment, and started yelling at the screen. It went downhill from there......people were throwing popcorn at the screen, yelling and laughing. At one point a couple of the theatre crew came in to see what was going on, but we found our out later they couldn’t figure it out and left. A bunch of us wound up at a bar across the street and the best we could come up with was he was an alcoholic who never had sailed before.Worst Sailing movie was All is Lost!

Not the best sailing movie, but the scene in Pirates of the Caribbean where the Black Pearl decides to fight Barbarossa and drops their anchor to spin the boat and bring their guns to bear, great trick, I wonder if it was ever actually used in battle?
