He's the gruff cargo pilot who hates tourists.
She's the acerbic New Yorker on her week-long dream vacation.
They're the last two people who'd want to be stranded on an uninhabited
jungle island together -- and neither one had plans for the romantic
adventure that unfolds.
Romantic Adventure - Six Days, Seven Nights is an extremely light romantic comedy
set in a beautiful locale. Viewers expecting little more than attractive
stars in an attractive place will probably enjoy the predictable but
glossy romantic interplay between Harrison Ford and Anne Heche. The
script and situations are fairly implausible, however, and the romance
is frequently undercut by forced action sequences. Fans of Harrison
Ford and fans of romantic adventures are most likely to enjoy the film.
PROFANITY: Moderately strong and moderately frequent SEX/NUDITY: Suggestions of sexual activity; side views of bare breasts VIOLENCE: One shooting; one fight sequence DRUGS/ALCOHOL: A few scenes of drunken behavior; one scene of effects of prescription drugs ACTION: A few chase scenes, fights and explosions COMEDY: Comedy based on bickering opposites in an extreme situation
All right, let's get two things out of the way here: 1) Anne Heche
is a lesbian; 2)Six Days, Seven Nights is an unsatisfying
Hollywood trifle, not because Anne Heche doesn't date men, but
because the script is a disaster. Heche and Harrison Ford play wildly
opposite characters (naturally) who wind up stranded on a deserted
tropical island and start to fall in love (naturally). There's just
one thing missing from this interation: the faintest idea who Heche's
character is, and why we shouldn't find her actions extremely unsympathetic
when we've seen her in a happy relationship with a decent guy. Throw
in a ridiculous sub-plot involving pirates -- yes, pirates -- and you
have a messy romantic adventure whish lacks credibility, but not for the
reasons you might expect.
Harrison Ford stars as Quinn Harris, a rough-hewn
aviator living an uncomplicated existence in Paradise. He's content
with the comfortable living he makes flying freight in his weather-beaten
old plane, and life is just the way he wants it ... until he meets
Robin Monroe (Anne Heche). She's a sharp, driven, magazine editor
on holiday with her new fiancé, Frank Martin (David Schwimmer).
When an unexpected editorial deadline requires Robin to be in
Tahiti, she reluctantly bribes Quinn to fly her there.
Forced down in a storm, the two suddenly find
themselves stranded on a deserted island. With no plane, no communication
and no patience for each other, neither is prepared for the exhausting,
exhilarating adventure that awaits them. Danger and romance ensue
as the two castaways are thrown into a series of adventures not
found in any vacation brochure.
