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 {J-26}

Goofs

Robin is wearing a long white dress when they crash. She changes into floral shorts and a tank shirt when she and Quinn go looking for fresh water. After he gets the snake out of her pants in the water, they cut to next scene where they are back to the beach where the plane is. Robin is looking for fresh clothes in her suitcase and the shorts and tank shirt she was just wearing (which had gotten dirty and wet) are in her suitcase folded and clean, and Robin is changing out of the white dress she had already changed out of.

Alternate Versions

After 9/11/01, the USA network edited the dialogue poorly so that when Anne Heche originally said, "I've flown with you twice, you've crashed half the time," she now says, "I've flown with you twice, you've FLOWN half the time." See more »

fails the litmus test
7 February 2001 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

The litmus test is -- if [big star] weren't in this film, could it be a TV movie? Alas, the answer is yes. Though very entertaining with good performances, how Six Days Seven Nights made it to the big screen eludes me. It is not original and doesn't have the kind of script one demands of a feature film. I was just glad I didn't pay $8.50 or more to see it in the theater - but it will do well in video, where it should have gone directly in the first place.
