Six Days, Seven Nights

"Good"

Six Days, Seven Nights Review


Slightly underrated, and I mean slightly... this precocious romantic comedy is all over the map, er, so to speak, when gruff 50+er Ford hooks up with 20something Heche after he crashes his plane on a deserted, tropical island. This couple is as opposite as it gets, but watch out, because in crazy times you never know who's going to fall for their complete opposite! The plot is lifted wholesale from The African Queen, sans the Bogart/Hepburn chemistry, but the addition of the subplot of the intermingling of the significant others left behind actually makes the film quite giddy. Sure, Schwimmer and Obradors make for an even less likely couple, and don't get me started on "the pirates." But hey, it's not the worst flick than any of the principals have made, not by a long shot.
