character study
15 August 1999 | by PeachHamBeachSee all my reviews

This is a strange, out of the everyday but refreshing look at what happens when people who would definitely clash if they are forcibly brought together are brought together. Phillip (Viggo Mortensen, in a vicious, completely believable performance!!!) owns a beautiful white yacht, and is obviously extremely pleased with himself. How he got the means to get this pretty white boat is made obvious quite early on in the movie. The story begins when he invites sister Jennifer (Pamela Gidley), her husband Bill (Donal Logue), musician buddy Alex (John Philbin) and new "friend" Catherine Driftwood (Sam Jenkins) to join him on a cruise of the Carribean. The story starts a little slowly, but you do pick up on the notion that every one of these people has some little demon in his/her closet as they chatter and argue about marital vows, writers' block, barracuda and the AIDS virus. The story livens up when Bill spots a burning boat on the horizon, with what appears to be "a couple of chicks" in peril on board. Phillip isn't too keen on the idea of picking up total strangers from burning boats, especially if all they're gonna do is mess up his pretty white boat in some way, but Jen, Bill, Catherine and Alex insists it's the right thing to do, and Phil relents. Enter Camilla (Laura Del Sol) an illegal Cuban immigrant and Timothy (Jeremy Sisto) who is not exactly what Phillip would call a "chick" even though he's got breasts and is very womanly in every aspect of his personality. Tim and Phillip clash almost from the first moment, and Phillip gets an unpleasant surprise that might put his future with his pretty white boat in jeopardy. This movie is hard to find, but some videostores may have it. It's a good movie if you are into independent movies with provocative and original subject matter, and the characters are all interesting, even though Mortensen, Logue and Sisto steal the show in a three way tug-of-war for control of the crazy situation.
