Six Days, Seven Nights (1998)

Yes, Ivan Reitman, the same man who made Meatballs, made this movie.

What can I say nice about it?

Harrison Ford did all his own flying?

That this was shot on the same island as the 1976 King Kong?

Temuera Morrison and Ford are in this movie yet never meet in any of the Star Wars movies?


Robin Monroe (Anne Heche) is a New York fashion editor whose boyfriend Frank (David Schwimmer) takes her on a South Pacific vacation, but the plane of Quinn Harris (Harrison Ford) crashes and hijinks, as I always say, ensue.

Sometimes, I watch movies like this just to make my wife happy. It makes me wonder what she sees in me, you know? I’m such a horrible grump, sitting here writing about movies that I don’t even care about while she watches true crime shows and I hope I’m doing the best that I can in this marriage.

Originally, the film was intended to make Anne Heche into a sex symbol. After she showed up on a red carpet with Ellen DeGeneres, Touchstone Pictures fired her, but Harrison Ford got her hired back.
