I am a journalist Robert, I assure you. I have very little interest in your flights of fancy.
You Daniel Defoe are a writer. It's your destiny as such to bring this remarkable man's story, a story of intense struggle, extraordinary friendship, and undying love to the world.

PC rubbish. Did this guy READ the BOOK? I saw better things in the toilet. If you loved the book- DON'T see this! For over 100 years people have loved this story- whose idea was it to change it to some totally different scenario? You need a MINUS 10 on the rating list here.... This comes from someone who can and frequently does enjoy some pretty lame movies.....Okay, I get the slavery thing- but THAT was addressed in the book, and why are we blowing up all these natives again? WHERE are the Spaniards? What is this thing with butts? I didn't want to see any butts when I rented this movie...and they weren't even attractive ones... As I fast forwarded through another pointless love scene, my son said "Aww not the NAKED thing again!" This should have been a movie we could all enjoy- instead it was turned into a stripped and remade POS, completely without the ideas that made the book so great.
