Quinn Harris (Harrison Ford) is a cranky pilot ferrying merchandise around a cluster of tropical islands. Although he despises the tourists who swarm onto the islands, he agrees to act as an air-taxi for New Yorker Robin Monroe (Anne Heche), who urgently needs to get to Tahiti. When a storm forces the plane down, the mismatched couple are forced to battle it out against the elements - and each other.

1:32 People don’t wear berets often enough.
3:09 It’s Ross!
4:11 I wouldn’t like it if Mr C talked to my boss behind my back.
8:08 That is a scary plane. The price you pay for paradise.
9:52 She is very skinny.
14:29 The contrast between sunny island and snowy New York is good.
18:35 A rickety old plane. A storm brewing. I wonder.
21:35 Wow. It took him a long time to get over missing her, didn’t it?
28:21 Phone signal can never be relied upon, can it?
34:18 If my fiancé had a plane crash, I wouldn’t be getting in no plane.
36:23 She must have seen a pig before.
41:41 Being that kind of shipwrecked (airwrecked?) doesn’t seem all so bad. Why is she so cranky? She even has alcohol!
44:39 “I’ve flown with you twice, you’ve crashed half the time.”
51:20 They are lucky the life raft didn’t get punctured when it exploded in the plane.
1:00:09 Blimey. That’s an enormous drop! He’s a sensible man for getting a kiss in first.
1:05:16 He left! I kinda don’t believe that.
1:06:19 They are all so faithful. This is most unusual in films… maybe not.
1:14:16 If just cuddling up to someone can make you think up elaborate plans like that, there should be more cuddling.
1:18:12 They are not very bright people - shooting upwards. Honestly.
1:20:40 There must be a less populated area of the island she could have aimed for.
1:22:43 A cup of tea after a major incident is so British!
1:26:07 He would make a good receptionist, I think.
1:28:54 I can’t quite believe the ring survived a deserted island escapade and is not only unscathed but also very shiny.


I watched a lot of films over Christmas, and I need to do a bit of a catchup. Over the next week or so, I’ll post a Film Watch every day. I don’t really want to spam the blog with them, but there’s a mixture of good and bad films that need to be discussed!

This is such a terrible film, with weird characters that make strange decisions. However, I do like some of the dialogue, and even though the hate-turned-love story is so clichéd, the insults are quite fun. I also really like Ross being in it.

Rating: 2 / 5
