Just watched Adrift last night - god it was irritating but had to sit it out. Anyway we have no idea whether Dan and her were dead at the end when she was standing on the deck and you could hear the baby crying.

That boat came along and you couldnt see her but could hear sarah crying and then the boat left and she was on deck with Dan lying on the deck - so dont understand if she was alive why didnt boat man see her and if she was dead why did he leave the baby behind?

My sister says she is dead but I dont agree - help please to decipher this --aaaggghhh!

I just watched Open Water 2:Adrift and I said from the beginning take the knife and work it into the hull for one of the guys to hang on to and have one of the girls stand on his shoulders. My word cheerleaders do it all the time. That is ultimately what they did in the end. I cannot believe that 6 adults would be that stupid, which makes the movie totally unbelievable.

I watched the movie Adrift some time ago and I think it was the first in the series. It was a good movie. The 2 stars of the movie are known actors and do an excellent job. But the ending really caught me off guard.

Sorry I was wrong the movie Adrift and Open Water 2:Adrift have nothing to do with each other. Adrift is about a couple that get caught in a hurricane at sea and their boat gets quite torn up and they lose their radio. Open Water is based on a true story about a couple that gets left behind while on a scuba diving expedition due to a miscount on the dive boat. Open Water 2:Adrift is loosely based on a true story about 2 divers accidentally abandoned in the middle of the ocean. Open Water 3:Cage Dive is about three friends from California headed to the rugged Australian coast for a cage-dive encounter with great white sharks.

I GIVE THE 12 YEAR LONG Q, AN A pls read!

First of, I would like to say that wow I cannot believe how long this thread actually has been up and no one noticed the answer to a question that literally is right there in the final idk 5 min of the movie lol. Given that this thread has been unanswered since I graduated from High School just gave me the urge to answer this for the original poster and all others that follow, are you ready? Btw....there is no double meaning for this movie haha you just have to really pay attention to details. Also, I strongly encourage everyone to rewatch the Last 5 min maybe u will finally catch it too lmfao

In the last five minutes as Amy boards the yacht and lets the ladder down (this is crucial) the ladder was still FOLDED down. So when she left Dan and he decided to drown and Amy came back up she went to the ladder yet again and again still folded down. Blah blah move forward to when the guy with boat shows up, as he goes around the boat u see that the oh! The ladder is PROPPED IN AN UNFOLDED POSITION indicating that that either her or dan got back on the boat which u see both are.

So no ghosts no double meaning just gotta get our eyes checked sometimes lol jk but perhaps paying attention would help out wink.

I hope I can finally lay some of you poor souls to rest, I think I did my good deed for the year here rofl.

Ps. Excuse the grammar and run on sentences etc it’s rather late and I don’t give a u know what wink
