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}

Trivia

In this film, Harrison Ford is a pilot who warns another to "Get away from my plane". In his previous film, 'Air Force One' (1997), he flies (despite not being a pilot) and tells another to "Get off of my plane". See more »

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

Angelica: Not to insult you, but I don't think guys know what love is.
Frank Martin: I do!
Angelica: Yeah? Guys are always telling me that they love me.
Frank Martin: Well, I'm sure at least some of them mean it.
Angelica: [Chuckles scoffingly] No they don't.

Crazy Credits

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 »

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 »

One of our all time favorites
2 April 2000 | by sinanSee all my reviews

The script/timing/acting in this movie is excellent, and is a great joy to watch. The perfect timing of the cast and an excellent story make this one of our favorites along with Fifth Element,American President, In and Out, The MatchMaker , The Local Hero and The Mystery Man..
