Cutthroat Island is an adventure film with a spice of romantic comedy. With leading lady Geena Davis playing the fabulous and fierce pirate Captain Morgan, the film takes an interesting twist from the start. She is paired with leading man Matthew Modine, who plays a know-it-all thief named Shaw who has a very mischievous streak. After Morgan's father is kidnapped by her evil, selfish uncle Dawg, played by the dominant Frank Langella, Morgan plans a quick and daring rescue. However, her father is mortally wounded and as he dies he tells his daughter about a fabulous treasure with hidden map pieces distributed to him and his brothers. Morgan, now captain of her father's ship, decides to go after the treasure and get it before her uncle Dawg does. However, with the map piece she received from her father, Morgan needs someone who can translate Latin in order to decipher the coordinates. This is where Shaw, the thief and terrible liar, comes in and begins to mix everything up.
