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>

Trivia

Harrison Ford personally picked out Anne Heche to be his co-star over much greater stars like Gwyneth Paltrow, Julia Roberts, Meg Ryan and Uma Thurman. Had Ryan been chosen, this would have been the second time she would have played a character involved with a pilot. The first was Top Gun (1986). See more »

Goofs

When Robin crash lands Quinn's plane, the left side of the cockpit is partially submerged. But when Quinn is helped out of the plane, his door is not submerged but is a few feet above the water. See more »

A fun movie, not to be taken too seriously
10 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

A crusty pilot-for-hire is trapped on a tropical island with a fashion magazine executive. I might have avoided this had it been anywhere else but the "action" part of the video rental store. There was enough action in it so as not to disappoint the action fan too much, but there is a certain amount of romance too. The executive has left behind a brand new husband on the vacation island she has been called away from. And the pilot-for-hire has a girlfriend left behind there too.

And so it goes. There are some suprises, but not too many. The grand old DeHavilland Beaver upstages everyone and so if you like airplanes, you will like this one.

Harrison Ford + Airplanes = Great Movie every time.
