A gruff, rough-hewn cargo pilot living in the islands, Quinn Harris (Ford) hates tourists ... though he's not above making a fast buck from a sharp-tongued New Yorker, Robin Monroe (Heche), when she's desperate for a quick flight to Tahiti. But this already uneasy relationship suddenly takes a nosedive when his weather-beaten old plane is forced down in a storm, stranding the duo. (Buena Vista)

    Romantic comedies don't get more formulaic than this bouncing-screwball valentine, but then they don't get much more delightful, either.
  2. 70
    Mostly it's an overearnest examination of emotional and sexual fidelity.
  3. Ms. Heche and Mr. Ford make an appealing, wisecracking team, and they look comfortable with the rugged demands of their roles.
  4. An acceptable star vehicle, no better or worse than it should be, a well-worn standard diversion that gets the job done without eliciting either howls of fury or paroxysms of delight.
  5. 50
    All that's missing from Ivan Reitman's Six Days, Seven Nights is a plot with a moment's originality.
  6. Action in an action comedy is supposed to be funny, too, as Jackie Chan well knows. The refitting of the crashed plane is so tedious we feel as if we're doing the work ourselves.
  7. Labors mightily to be a frolicsome entertainment, but the results are - well, labored. The dialogue isn't snappy, the story isn't surprising, there's little chemistry between the stars.

This is one. You actually can identify with the characters, more than one of the characters. (Considering that there are really only four main characters, 2 male and 2 female, you are really surprised when you identify with both characters of your gender). Expand
