The African Queen meets Swept Away in this sometimes labored romantic comedy by director Ivan Reitman. Fortunately, he cast an old pro in Harrison Ford, as Quinn Harris, a South Seas charter pilot who must ferry New York fashion editor Robin Monroe (Anne Heche) from one island to another--a hop that falls flat when they fly into a mammoth storm that causes them to crash on a deserted island. The pair resent and resist each other, until they are forced to team up to escape from the island--and some modern pirates who want their heads. If that part of the story is unconvincing, you can always focus on the smoldering comic chemistry between Heche, who displays strong comic instincts, and the ever-reliable Ford. The script is just an excuse for these two flinty characters to strike increasingly romantic sparks off each other, which is always enjoyable to watch. --Marshall Fine

Product Description

Big-screen favorite Harrison Ford stars in this nonstop adventure hit about a dream vacation that turns into a hilarious tropical nightmare! 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 (sexy Anne Heche -- VOLCANO, WAG THE DOG), 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! Now, stranded together on a deserted isle, Quinn and Robin quickly discover all the perils of paradise. As this mismatched pair find themselves facing danger at every turn, you're sure to find their misfortunes fueling one of Hollywood's most entertaining action-comedy hits in years!

5.0 out of 5 stars Action adventure and romantic comedy November 12, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
When abrasive New Yorker Robin Monroe (Anne Heche) and her boyfriend Frank (David Schwimmer), head out to an idyllic Polynesian island for some R&R, all is well until Robin's boss in New York calls her and begs Robin to fly to neighboring Tahiti to take on an urgent assignment. Reluctantly, Robin agrees and approaches the local island-hopping pilot, Quinn (Harrison Ford). Quinn agrees to fly Robin to Tahiti, but during the flight, they are beset by a thunderstorm and forced to crash-land on a deserted island. Shipwrecked, two completely opposite personalities clash and come together in a series of highly entertaining and enjoyable adventures, including basic survival, a run-in with off-shore murderous pirates, and overcoming the odds to set about escaping from the island. The scenery is gorgeous, offset by a great soundtrack, and Ford is at his comedic best playing a tipsy, laid-back playboy whose South Pacific laisse-faire is a perfect foil for Heche's highly strung city-girl character.
Ford and Heche do wonders with the standard stuck-on-a-desert-island plot, and instead of being mundane it shines with real humor and unexpected twists and turns. Both actors display a true affinity for hilarious one-liners and unsuspected tender moments. A delightful movie. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Six Days Seven Nights, Wish It Woulda Gone On Longer December 19, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Okay, I admit, I was skeptical before seeing this movie. Harrison Ford has ceased to be a turn on for me since his "Sabrina" days, as I'm not really attracted to men over the age of 50 or so. And I was not familiar with Anne Heche's film work and didn't know what to expect from her in terms of acting ability. I thought, okay, Ford is archaic and Heche is, well, a lesbo, so how on earth could they have chemistry? They proved me dead wrong. "Six Days Seven Nights" (get the quirk in the title?) was an enjoyable gem. Ford played the romantic lead better here than he did in "Sabrina" almost a decade ago, and Heche totally blew me away. Her comedic timing and delivery were impeccable, and in my opinion, it was her performance that made the film work. What I liked the most were the interesting character and gender-issue developments that you rarely see in romantic comedy adventure flicks these days. The characters that Ford and Heche play, Robin and Quinn, respectively, develop a relationship that is tried and true. They start off very much "of this world," (Robin is a tough New York executive who depends on her cell phone like it's her oxygen tube and the shallow Quinn hits on women and drinks too much), but after crashing on a deserted island with no immediate way to escape, their distinct man/woman instincts take over. This was a pleasure to watch. Major highlight: When Heche's Robin says to Ford's Quinn, "I need you to be my confident captain," and he responds in the affirmative. He steps up to the plate and becomes "da man," and she shows her feminine, vulnerable side. It was a beautiful moment in the movie. It's tough to initially believe that the adorable Robin would fall for old, weathered Quinn. But after he saves her life again and again, we begin to understand. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie, Great Fun "Funny and Fabulous!" December 27, 2002
Format:DVD
Starring Harrison Ford (Indiana Jones) and Anne Heche in Six Days Seven Nights, WILL entertain you moviegoers very much. This movie is Action, Comedy, and Drama in one. (other star(s) worth mentioning are David Schwimmer (Ross Gellar in the T.V. Series Friends)
First, these two incompatible people, Quinn(Ford) and Robin(Heche) gets (like) shipwrecked on an island. They continously argue with each other but also try to survive on the island.
This movie shows great stuff that you probably would not find in another "survival on an island" movie which I will not spoil here.
As for the Acting, it is FANTASTIC. Ford and Heche really brought their character personalities to a MAX on this one.
You will laugh, you will cry, you will smile, and your heart will race. This movie will entertain all!
The music is "great!" and blends seamlessly into the movie!
I recommend this Movie to all island survival fans, movie lovers, to couples, to yourself, and to families and friends "alike".

5.0 out of 5 stars Light-hearted adventurous romantic comedy. February 13, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a well-cast movie. The actors and actresses work well together; they were perfect; there were no weak points.

This movie is so much fun to watch, that I'm surprised not to find Harrison Ford and Anne Heche playing in other movies together. The chemistry they emit is refreshing. Anne Heche seems to have an innate ability for her timing with humor. She's good, very good. The viewer can't help but be roped into the action segments. You are there.

Also, it was wonderful to watch the athletic prowess that Harrison and Anne showed at work, play, and in the adventurous portions of the movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Edelman gives his six days and seven nights of fame. October 7, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Randy Edelman continues to impress me scoring hit after hit and this one is a perfect example of that. Edelman goes hawaiian with this score (due to the setting of the film) and throws in an impressive orchestral sound to accompany it. The theme first appears in "Into the Mist" and has that trademark Edelman sound with soaring strings and cymbal crashes that put the icing on the cake. The theme itself is the love theme of the film and is pretty. It occurs a lot throughout the score in various places, but is not overused. The other motif is a hawaiian dance tune, complete with guitars, synthesizers, orchestra, and lots of percussion. It makes you want to get up and dance like an idiot (I wouldn't try it). This thematic material occurs most noticeably in "Maketea", "Pink Kawala", "Fixing the Old Beaver", and the odd sounding "Lunching with Peacocks", which I read somewhere sounds like "Lunching with Alka-Seltzer" (listen to the beginning of the track to see what I mean). The other tracks to point out are "Crashdance" and "Pirates" which has the same percussion work as "The Race" in "The Skulls" soundtrack also composed by Edelman. Tailing off the soundtrack is a song by Taj Mahal which is one of the dumbest songs i've ever heard. Your best bet is to stop after track 20 and skip track 21, unless off-beat music with lyrics that you cannot understand are your thing. All in all, a fine work and a job well done by Edelman, who is one of my favorite composers today.
