Just good enough to recommend
27 March 1999 | by (North Bay, Ontario) – See all my reviews

This is an average film that just happens to contain a large number of memorable quotes, and for that reason alone I would have to say that I enjoyed this movie. The storyline is rather uninspired, as this film tells the story of five completely different people who live in isolation after being the lone survivors of a plane crash. Needless to say, these polar opposites continually butt heads, and civil conversations almost always disintegrate into heated arguments. Yet having said all that, I still managed to like this film. The performances are all good, it moves along at a good pace, and the writing is clever enough that I still remember lines from this film, even though I haven't seen it in four years. I'm not quite sure of how available this film is, but if you ever come across it, give it a chance.
