Captain Courageous is a nice film about a spoil kid who learns things by accidentally falling off a boat onto a rough fishing boat.

It tells the story of what happens on the boat and the interactions very well, and in a nice fashion. Although the material could be overly schmaltzy it never completely falls into such a pitfall. The ending might wrap things up a bit too neatly but it still is a nice film.
