Memorable quote
13 December 2000 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland) – See all my reviews

An enjoyable film - what would you do if cut off from civilisation? The characters in this made for TV movie take on the mantle of their favourite film stars. This is suggested by John Gordon Sinclair who plays the part of Henry (Fonda) and is a big film buff.

Henry has a dream one night in which he plays the part of Kirk Douglas in Spartacus. When the Roman asks the slaves to identify Spartacus, Tony Curtis stands up, points at Henry and says "He's Spartacus", then all the other slaves stand up, point at him and say "He's Spartacus". It was, at the very least, funny at the time.
