Simple Premise Reaches Predictable End
4 April 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I only watched this movie for one reason, and she now plays a witch on the WB. Based on a true story, this story shows off both the beauty and the risks of Alaska. Survival is the name of the game as Alyssa Milano and Cameron Bancroft get on each others tempers as they try to reach civilization when their contact forgets them. Sustaining on toothpaste, they also learn a lot more about each other as they learn to depend on each other than if they had just lived together. The ending is predictable, but you don't know how it happens or when. Just when the ending became obvious, someone could have injected some dark comedy and a twist as Milano was found alone with the dog cooking a meaty broth as her rescuers catch up with her. "Like some ?" she could ask with an evil glint in her eyes.
