Storyline

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 the plane crash-lands on an uninhabited island with little chance of rescue they both wish they had made other arrangements - at least to start with. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

What Went Wrong? Anne Heche
10 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Spoilers Ahead:

Ford does a great job in the movie. He demonstrates his underrated comic talents that were hidden in the Star Wars movies. Also, the scenery is breathtaking as is the photography. These two factors are why I give it four stars. Remember the snake in her pants scene? Now, listen to his delivery compared to hers; imagine a better actress was doing the scene reading those lines correctly. The writing in romantic comedies is always awful. Yes, the pirates were silly; please, The Blue Lagoon did not even have a script; the two characters were so endearing nobody noticed. Heche goes through this movie like a piece of heavy machinery. That shrill, screeching, misandrist act gets old very, very fast. Yes, just because she is a career woman does not mean she has to be that shrill and pushy. Also, by the way, she has always been a terrible actress. Did you find her overacting and hyper gesticulations to distract you from her lack of talent convincing? When all is said and done, imagine Ford's hot girlfriend in the role instead of Heche? The movie would have been so much better. The woman is always annoying; always lecturing, correcting then yelling and overacting badly.

It is worth watching once for Ford's performance in a very difficult role. No supporting cast, out there all alone with bad acting Anne Heche, trying to hold the movie up. Also, the scenery is worth seeing; it has some of the best photography I had seen in a long time. You just need to be honest with yourself about how much of Anne Heche you can take; I watch it occasionally but I would never buy it. She just is too annoying; yes, she had to land the plane, guess whose idea that was? Yes, superwoman saves the day; you can always tell which parts of the script were her ideas. Ford will surprise you in the movie; the writing is not the problem. I love when Ford says,"It's an Island, if you didn't bring it with you, you won't find it here." When you watch the movie listen to her delivery, her lines would have worked with another, less strident, talented actress. She is the anchor that sank this movie. She also did considerable damage to The Juror. True, it was DOA when released but she really helped wreck it.

If you can stomach her, I can recommend the movie. Ford evokes such sympathy when you watch it. You can see on his face, his worry that he made a terrible mistake. Poor guy, a great performance destroyed and rarely seen all due to dreadful casting. A mediocre movie.
