I don't remember anything much about the movie because I watch it when I was little. The movie is about a big boat that was wrap by a big octopus.

Telling us when you were little might help us to pin down when this movie occurred! We don't all know ;) If you were little little in 1998 it might be deep rising as below. If you were young in 1954 it might be "20000 Leagues Under the Sea" – AidanO Aug 7 '13 at 14:40
There are so many old giant squid style movies this could be a very hard one to find! – Liath Aug 8 '13 at 8:29
Was it a live action film? Which lanaguage was it in? Was it black and white or colour? Can you remember any actors in it? Were there any memorable scenes? What size was the boat? Was it a horror, comedy, thriller? When were you little? Was the film on TV, cinema? – Stefan Aug 8 '13 at 11:22

Did each tentacle have its own mouth, and did the people on the boat think the tentacles squirming through the corridors were individual creatures?

Deep Rising tentacle

Was the one big creature not revealed until the end?

Deep Rising monster

If so, the movie was Deep Rising, (1998).

The movie is available on Youtube. Here is the scene where the one big creature is revealed.

It might also be the 1954 classic "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea."

Here's the relevant clip.

It's a popular enough movie that I doubt it is the correct answer (or at least I hope it's not), but Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest was released in 2006 (7 years ago). If you're currently fairly young (maybe 12-17 years old), then you might be referring to the Kraken scene.

How about It Came From Beneath The Sea? It has a very memorable scene with the gigantic octopus destroying golden gate bridge.
