But the best laid plans?

Proteus’ beautiful betrothed, Marina (Catherine Zeta-Jones), has stowed away on Sinbad’s ship, determined to make sure that Sinbad fulfills his mission and saves Proteus’ life. Now the man who put the “bad” in Sinbad is about to find out how bad bad can be. It’s never a good thing when Eris (Michelle Pfeiffer), the goddess of chaos, has it out for you, and Eris lives up to her name’dispatching both monstrous creatures and the elements to do battle with Sinbad along the way. There is even mutiny afoot’times four’when Sinbad’s loyal dog Spike switches allegiances. Adding insult to injury, the crew has decided they like taking orders from Marina’better than from Sinbad.
