Taking a romantic tropical island week off with her boyfriend, an ambitious, decisive New York girl agrees to help her magazine out by covering a story on a neighboring island. The only plane available is piloted by a laid-back heavy drinker with whom she shares a mutual dislike. But she has no choice and he can't refuse the money.

When Robin (Anne Heche) asks Quinn (Harrison Ford) what age he is, Quinn hints that he's over fifty before whispering to her the answer (To which she says "You still look good," and Quinn replies, "I still am good!"). Ford was actually 55 by the time this movie came out. See more »

[Robin and Quinn are sailing at the inflatable boat]
So what's the deal with you and... uhm...
[Robin draws breasts in the air]
No deal. We're friends. She works at the hotel couple of months a year, we have some laughs... keep it simple.
Well, has it always been... simple, or has there ever been anyone complicated?
[Quinn gives Robin a nasty look]
That's a yes. Yes? How complicated? Scale from one to ten.

This film probably wasn't made to make you laugh nonstop, but when they turn on the humor, the writers and those involved with the final cut have very nice timing and awesome lines! This movie is one of my favorites, because if i'm having a bad day...they (Heche and Harrison) are having a much worse one and manage to pick up my mood with the delivery of lines that make me laugh, so, yeah the humor. But also the style, pacing, and emotional involvement they make me feel as a viewer.
I'm invested. And though I may think that Schwimmer's character is a shmuck, I can understand his POV, so, he's okay.
David and the cast did an outstanding job, and while the filmed script may not have been the original one (I'd love to see it sometime) the end result is fabulous. If you haven't seen it, you should, and I hope you too laugh, and smile, and chuckle, and enjoy a rather grand movie. Enjoy!
