BRADENTON — Jodi Tyne says a television commercial for an upcoming George Clooney movie resurrects painful memories for her and her daughters of her ex-husband's death at sea. She is furious with how Clooney is depicting the former Cortez fisherman.

Moviegoers may marvel at the special effects mastery in the promotional snippet for The Perfect Storm, which shows 10-story waves battering a fishing boat captained by Clooney's character as crew members are swallowed by a raging ocean.

But Jodi Tyne, the ex-wife of Billy Tyne, the man Clooney portrays, says the movie is putting her and her two college-age daughters through a second round of painful mourning.

"How would you like it if every time you turn on the TV you see your father dying during the commercials?" Tyne said. "It's been 10 years, and thanks to this movie, I can't put him to rest."

The Warner Brothers film, due out June 30, is based on the October 1991 sinking of the Andrea Gail swordfishing boat. The six-man crew included three men from Manatee County in southwest Florida: boat captain Billy Tyne and deck hands Dale "Murph" Murphy and Michael "Bugsy" Moran. All three are portrayed in The Perfect Storm. The movie is based on author Sebastian Junger's best-selling 1997 book with the same title.

Junger used facts about the fateful journey of the ship, which sailed from Gloucester, Mass., and sank near Nova Scotia. Because there were no survivors, Junger had to speculate about what happened on the Andrea Gail in the final days before the 70-foot boat was sunk by Hurricane Grace.

According to Junger's narrative, Tyne put his crew's lives at risk, in part because his catch might have spoiled if he had waited, by heading through the approaching hurricane, which had dangerously collided with two other storms.
