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

When the pirates' gunboat is attacking the plane, it is initially shown moving towards the beach at some speed. When the plane takes off, however, the boat is seen to be perfectly still with no visible wake near it. See more »

Quotes

Robin: [after using their only flare and hitting a palm tree with it] Oh no! Oh uh oh! Oh nuts!
Quinn Harris: [waking up still partly drunk] What the...? What the hell did you do? You wasted our only god damned flare to shoot a god damned palm tree?
Robin: I wouldn't have shot the god damned tree if you hadn't rolled into me. I was trying to signal the god damned plane.
Quinn Harris: What god damned plane?
Robin: [points to a commercial airliner in the sky] That god damned plane.
Quinn Harris: That god damned plane? That's a commercial airliner! It's 5 miles high ...

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 »

So it's predictable...who cares it's fun and that's what counts!
15 April 2014 | by mpurvismattpSee all my reviews

I've seen this movie quit a few times before but it's still got charm and I still really enjoy watching it. Ford and Heche show real chemistry and they also show good comedic ability in their roles. Schwimmer pretty much renews his ole role of "friends" Ross but it works here and Obradors adds a certain Je ne sais quoi if ya get my drift. Overall this movie has a lot going for it, I guess you would call it a romantic comedy but it's got good action, good humor, Danny Trejo as a no lines saying pirate (not one line, really people? Sorry Danny) and a good story that works well for what it is...a fun movie. This is a great film to watch with a date as it really caters to both sexes and should be entertaining to most who watch, so sit back and kick yer feet up and just enjoy the ride people.
