Cures All Ills
20 May 2002 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Director of Valley Girl and Real Genius does it again. Sure to cure any ills, this movie watches two highly uptight New Yorkers break out to the Tahiti area for a quick holiday only a few weeks after their engagement, and get stranded as they do the dirty in a very expensive sailing boat. It's just a wonderful screenplay. It's always good when a screenplay works. It's not that often they do, but this one does. I won't spoil the ending, but it was neither what I was expecting nor what I had hoped for, but this tale could realistically only go one way (hope that didn't spoil it). This movie cures all ills. It's filmed in the VI, not in Tahiti, but who cares? Some of the footage is awesome. If I haven't mentioned it before, this movie cures all ills.
