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

Originally, the film was intended to make Anne Heche, then a virtually unknown actress, into the "It girl" of the period. In the same week she was cast - verbally, but not yet signed - Touchstone Pictures fired Heche after she made a red carpet appearance on the arm of the most famous lesbian in the world, Ellen DeGeneres, whom she had met just days earlier. (From a business standpoint, studio heads now felt that trying to sell Heche as a pinup type would be a waste of investment.) Harrison Ford used his influence to get Heche hired back, but the damage to her career was already done. Except for Return to Paradise (1998), made immediately after this, Heche has never gotten another starring role in a feature film. See more »

This romantic comedy and adventure story had a bunch of good and bad things going for or against it., but overall was an enjoying story that was a pleasant diversion. I don't know if I'd own it, but it's worth watching once or twice.
THE GOOD - Some tremendous South Seas island scenery; a good mix of comedy and adventure with attractive leads in Anne Heshe and Harrison Ford; and fast-moving story meaning good entertainment.
THE BAD - Poor messages about fidelity and marriages; an annoying, whining character played by David Schwimmer; too heavy - for family viewing - on the profanity and cleavage.
