Wonderful escape fare, quite literally
2 January 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For those that enjoy pure escapism like Field of Dreams, Blue Lagoon, etc., this film is a "must." Poitier and Cassavettes are great, as are the rest of the British cast. Actually filmed in the BVI, who wouldn't enjoy a delightful tale of a "boy meets girl," "girl leaves boy on cruise ship," and then "boy convinces girl to jump overboard and marry him to live on island he just purchased?" Wow!! With "Man Friday" Poitier and his girlfriend as able assistants, really well done picture of what living life on an actual island would be like. Even to the point of mother-in-law coming to visit. A must see picture!
