Communist Radicals hijack Air Force One with The U.S. President and his family on board. The Vice President negotiates from Washington D.C., while the President, a Veteran, fights to rescue the hostages on board.
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

The DeHaviland Beaver used in the film is the exact same one used in the production of The Edge (1997). It crashed in both movies. See more »
In the beach scene when Robin hears/sees the commercial airliner and tries to signal it with the flare gun, she struggles with Quinn for the flare gun because he was passed out. Initially there is an open bottle of liquor between Quinn's legs. After Robin gets and shoots the flare gun Quinn wakes up and rolls over and the bottle is now under his arm. See more »
You know how a woman gets a man excited? She shows up. That's it. We're guys, we're easy. Of course for that you can't charge six bucks an issue, now can you?

The DVD has the credits listed in French; after you go to the first second of chapter 3, and then go back, the credits are suddenly in English. See more »
This film probably wasn't made to make you laugh nonstop, but when they turn on the humor, the writers and those involved with the final cut have very nice timing and awesome lines! This movie is one of my favorites, because if i'm having a bad day...they (Heche and Harrison) are having a much worse one and manage to pick up my mood with the delivery of lines that make me laugh, so, yeah the humor. But also the style, pacing, and emotional involvement they make me feel as a viewer.
I'm invested. And though I may think that Schwimmer's character is a shmuck, I can understand his POV, so, he's okay.
David and the cast did an outstanding job, and while the filmed script may not have been the original one (I'd love to see it sometime) the end result is fabulous. If you haven't seen it, you should, and I hope you too laugh, and smile, and chuckle, and enjoy a rather grand movie. Enjoy!
