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}

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 »

Liteweight American fluff...
16 February 2002 | by seashellzSee all my reviews

...sort of the Cliffs Notes version of the superior SWEPT AWAY-but Americans dont have the attention span for a film that long. (I thought the same of CASTAWAY-not very long-no REAL dealing with survival issues-another quick, happy ending) BUT...the photography is gorgeous, and so is Hecht. It seemed that Ford was just sleepwalking thru this role....
