Six Days, Seven Nights [DVD] [1998]

Six Days, Seven Nights features an excellent 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. The picturesque greenery, rocky cliffs, and sparkling blue water of the tropical island setting all appear bright and focused, with only a few instances of grain and dirt on the print. The 5.1-channel Dolby Digital audio track is also sharp. The upbeat music moves well through the entire range of the speakers, and gunshots reverberate powerfully from the front speakers. A Dolby Digital French-language track is also available. On the downside, this DVD is a bare-bones release that lacks any notable extra features. It does contain the theatrical trailer in a decent widescreen transfer (along with some laughable recommendations -- Metro and Nothing to Lose -- that have little in common with this film), plus English subtitles and 23 chapter cues. While the Six Days, Seven Nights DVD is technically impressive, it would be improved immensely with better supplemental materials. Even a simple "on location" featurette or fluffy cast interviews would help considerably.

    Synopsis


    Six Days, Seven Nights
    Ivan Reitman directed this romantic comedy-adventure that opens in New York where fast-paced magazine associate editor Robin Monroe (Anne Heche) and her boyfriend, Frank (David Schwimmer), leave for a week's vacation on a remote island. They've already been together for three years, so when Frank asks her to marry him, she says yes. For a one-day Tahiti photo shoot, Robin engages the services of South Pacific cargo pilot Quinn Harris (Harrison Ford). Robin and Quinn head off to do the shoot, but a squall forces Quinn to land his DeHavilland Beaver on the beach of a remote, unknown island. With broken landing gear, they're trapped there. Search parties set forth. Robin and Quinn cope with each other. Survival skills surface. Sexual tensions escalate. Meanwhile, back at the hotel, Frank and Quinn's girlfriend, Angelica (Jacqueline Obradors), compare concerns at the hotel bar. Several days later, the search is called off. Quinn and Robin are left to their own devices, including removing pontoons from a convenient Japanese war plane and attempting a take off. Filmed on the Hawaiian island of Kauai. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

      Not Harrison Ford's best film, but still enjoyable

      Harrison Ford and Anne Heche headline this film as an experienced pilot named Quinn (Ford) and a workaholic magazine editor from New York named Robin (Heche) who wind up on a prop plane together after Robin is called to Tahiti to supervise a fashion event. At the same time, Robin is also invited by her boyfriend Frank to spend a week holidaying with him on the island of Makatea. Not long after taking off, Quinn and Robin end up getting caught in a thunderstorm and eventually make a crash landing on a deserted island. If I can remember correctly, I believe one of Robin's friends and Quinn's co-pilot Angelica may have made their own way to Makatea in another plane, considering that both Quinn and Robin are the only two that end up crash landing. In any case, they both fortunately survive. They are also quick to blame one another for their newfound predicament. Not long after, the two learn to set aside their differences to focus on their survival. Despite her boyfriend Frank's proposal, in which she previously accepted, Robin suddenly realizes that she may have feelings for Quinn and vice versa. This goes on for a while, while we discover that her boyfriend Frank ends up violating Robin's trust by having a one night stand with Quinn's co-pilot Angelica. Not long after, Quinn and Robin end up getting chased down by pirates, whom they successfully evade by jumping from a cliff into the ocean. Later on, it is revealed that they were actually camping out next to a World War II era Japanese plane that appears to be in rough shape, but is still usable for spare parts. With that in mind, Quinn and Robin get to work by using the plane's spare parts to fix their plane. Once the plane is fixed, the two fly to Makatea, (their original destination before crash landing on the remote island) just in time for their funerals. At the same time, Frank feels terrible about his one night stand with Angelica, but doesn't have the courage to tell Robin about it. Not long after, Robin goes to the hospital to visit Quinn and tells him her true feelings, but he brushes it off. Robin then decides to go back to New York with Frank, but while at the airport in Tahiti, she suddenly realizes that she isn't able to go. At this point, Frank finally confesses to Robin that he had a one night stand with Angelica while Robin tells Frank about her feelings for Quinn. They both agree that they aren't really in love and she gives him back the engagement ring. Quinn suddenly changes his mind about Robin and quickly makes his way to the airport. After successfully stopping Robin's flight, he approaches her. The film ends with the two embracing each other and kissing. To sum it all into perspective, although this film is worth watching, Harrison Ford has definitely had better films. "Six Days, Seven Nights" still provides good entertainment, though!

      Predictable but fun

      Ford is hilarious as the island pilot who takes an engaged photographer (Anne Heche) to a last minute photo shoot while she and her fiancee(David Schwimmer) on their island vacation. A storm forces them to land their disabled plane on a remote island. While trying to find escape/rescue, they must deal with each other, amongst other things. The attraction that develops between these two is inevitable. However, Ford proves he's one of our best actors with his funny work here. Likewise, David Schwimmer proves he's one of our most annoying actors with his one-note work here.

      Personally, I **adore** mind candy so I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Sometimes you want an uncomplicated movie to watch and this one fills the bill. There's action, there's love, there's lust, there's beautiful scenery (filmed in Hawaii), and there's humor. It's a great way to cheer up after a rough day/week. One of my favorite lines by the character, Robin, "I've flown with you twice and you've crashed half the time!" In a nutshell, this movie is a lot of FUN!

      While I vaguely remember loathing the movie the first time I saw it, the second time I lowered my standards and was much more kindly disposed. The plot is believable enough, if you can just swallow some real doozies from time to time. Otherwise, the bantering between Ford and Heche is entertaining at times, almost reminiscent of that between Ford and Carrie Fisher in another movie I can't quite recall the name of...

      I love this movie! the actors did a terrific job in it. No nudity, suggestive but not too bad. It's mostly funny but does have a few dramatic parts. I happen to like Harrison Ford & Ann Heche both are good in this movie.

      This was a really fun movie with a good blend of Action, Comedy, and a bit of Romance. I really enjoyed watching Harrison Ford & Anne Heche act together and felt they had good chemistry.

      I'm not a romantic comedy kind of guy, but this movie has enough action and head butting to hold my attention. It's a fun vacation gone awry.

      This adventurous film manages to balance survival comedy with explosive action to create one of the most entertaining movies of the '90s.
