More than I expected.
21 April 2003 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

Totally incredible work on the set to make it as accurate as possible! Truly impressive. I felt as if I were there. Question for the OAE's that wintered that year: Was the Doc REALLY as much of a whiney-butt as Susan Sarandon portrayed her...or was that just Sarandon's typical portrayal of any role she's done since Rocky Horror Picture Show. At any rate, had someone come to the Pole with that attitude, they would have been ostracized by the entire winterover crew. I wish they had spent more time exploring other members of the crew. That winter wasn't just about the Doc and her personal bout with cancer...it was about the crew pulling together and people back in the States overcoming immense odds to put the rescue together. Jeri was the VICTIM, the rest of the crew were the HEROES. My suggestion to the producers...save that incredible set you built, find yourselves some new writers, and put together a movie about what Pole is really like. Oh yeah, next time go with an "R" rating and show the 300 Club like it really is, lol.
