Is the only Kevin Reynolds film starring Kevin Costner where there isn't a villain. Alan Rickman played a villain, the Sherriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991) and Dennis Hopper played a villain, the Deacon in Waterworld (1995). See more »

A very underrated and under-seen film - thanks to the clods at Amblin (presumably because no one in the cast resembled an alien). Great acting, writing, and directing (from Kevin Reynolds). One of the only films Costner has ever acted in where he didn't resemble a stick of wood. I love this movie through and through. The sky diving scene (which is apparently what the film is built around, Reynolds' student film 'Proof') is fantastically funny from beginning to end. Marvin J. McIntyre is a true hero. GREAT soundtrack from beginning to end. The opening credits alone are worth the price of the rental. And the climax scene at Waggner's wedding is one of the most romantic and sensitive wedding scenes ever committed to film.
Don't miss it.
