Waterworld isn't that bad!
Do you mean the Dennis Hopper parts? .. I'd watch it for those although Hopper was shit in Land Of The Dead. Isn't Waterworld basically Max Max but on sea platforms?

On the whole... but it probably gets better when he turns up.
Someone told me they were wondering where his character got his cigarettes from now that the world is flooded? .. that sort of thing can put me off a film ..

He had a shipload of cigarettes left over from the old days. Maybe they were carefully stored.

Yes - so, quite enjoyable.
It was on the other day, watched a bit of it, reportedly the most expensive film ever made at the time due to the amount of divers they had to employ as part of their health and safety/insurance resposabilities

Waterworld is a very good film if you can tolerate sci fi. (I know some otherwise nice people who can't and I have great sympathy.) Very imaginative, good futurism, good story and script, on the whole good to excellent acting, nice casting and superb production and effects, but way way way way too long, and this is because it was in fact a vanity project. It lost money in first run but made a bundle and continues to do so in international distribution and the afterlife (video etc.) If you ever get a chance to see the directors cut (even longer) do so.

Rebuilding the sets after a hurricane struck during filming, didn't help the budget.

I recommend but you do need a little patience. A few beers probably will help.
