Trivia

An early draft of the script had Chuck having two different personalities talking to each other, Good Chuck and Bad Chuck. See more »

Goofs

Figure skates are like pencils: they are dull when fresh, and have to be sharpened before being used for the first time. The sharpening also has to be maintained periodically, and Chuck's use of the skates in survival skills would have greatly damaged them to the extent that they would no longer be usable. There is no credible way Chuck could've used the skates as survival tools, especially given the four-year time span and lack of a skate sharpener. See more »

Quotes

Chuck Noland: Gotta love crab. In the nick of time too. I couldn't take much more of those coconuts. Coconut milk is a natural laxative. That's something Gilligan never told us.

Applauding the guts
27 September 2001 | by marcgmillerSee all my reviews

From time to time a group of people with a lot of guts come forward and challenge something, that every average thinking producer would get nightmares to even think about making it.

Fear of failing must come to mind, if the setting says:

  • only one actor for 80 min (and one dead body)


  • 40 min of it basically limited to: "Hello,.. What's that?.. Albert Miller,.. Over here,.."


  • no BGM


  • no adrenaline injections with savages, sharks, snakes etc.


  • just plain "Life is hard enough as it is."


I loved it for:

  • the guts of making it


  • the heartbreaking and real-to-life love story


  • Tom Hanks' performance


  • his companion Wilson


great movie / must see
