Six Days, Seven Nights Reviews

Ford from "Indiana Jones" and Schwimmer from "Friends" starred in this different type of Indiana Jones adventure with no Jones. (B)
(Full review coming soon - with better wording and requires another viewing probably)

one of my favorite flicks from my early childhood
Ivan Reitman directs a fluffy but fun and relaxing stranded-island picture
Harrison Ford, Anne Heche, and David Schwimmer are all excellent and highly watchable
a romantic vacation turns into a test of survival and rescue as two people crash land by plane on a deserted island and have to find a way back to their significant others and their own lives
there's a great amount of laughs, silly jokes, great sexual tension between the leads, and a sense of thrill
by the third act when the pirates arrive it becomes very intense
the scenery is so gorgeous, too
it's amazing what 'Six Days and Seven Nights' can change and wanting life to be complicated and not messy or plain simple

I really liked this movie. Rotten tomatoes has no idea what their talking about. I see a lot of good movies like this with negative rating which make no sense to me.

i really like this movie, i can watch it regularly as a happy escape movie idk,
the way they argue and bicker is top notch, 10/10 for this great classic imo.

I don't understand the logic behind green-lighting the movie. Ford is not bad. Anne Heche is not bad. The story is forgettable, but watchable. However, all together, it just doesn't work.

The movie itself isn't bad, but "Six Days Seven Nights" is completely forgettable, average genre fare. And for the record, I found the chemistry between the two leads lacking.

Six Day Seven Nights is a mediocre picture that has a lacking script and wastes an exciting idea on poor storytelling and direction. Ivan Reitman has made far superior films than this. With this film, he just delivers a film that is somewhat predictable, and in the end ends up being a waste of time. I really wanted to enjoy the film, but it felt like the filmmakers rushed through the material as if they didn't care about making a good film. The film also left you wanting a bit more by the times the credits roll and the attempt at comedy and action just fall apart and never materializes into something entertaining. I felt the performances were flat and not interesting and the film as a whole could definitely have been much better than this. Harrison Ford has made far superior films, and this one is one of his weakest, and is not worth seeing. This film could have been good if the script would have been solid, but it wasn't. This is a poorly constructed effort that simply just doesn't deliver. This is a boring film with nothing to offer and if you're expecting something good, you'll be disappointed because it features some fairly predictable situations and outcomes. Overall this is a film that uses genre elements in order to create something, but it never materializes into something truly memorable. This is a lacking film that wastes its potential on lacking ideas that fall flat. This film really could have been fun and entertaining, but it just doesn't add up to much.

Six Days, Seven Nights is enjoyable due to the sparking chemistry between Harrison Ford and Anne Heche blended with some laughs and moderate action.

An adventure flick filled with action, romance and a great screen couple...what do you want more?

Harrison Ford is 80 years old, and Anne Heche is a lesbian. In a case of opposites attract, they are stranded on a tropical island, and have to avoid pirates and repair the broken landing gear on their plane. I guess a May-December romance just seems a bit gross to me at this stage in life, but these two aren't a terrible pair. I wish more of the movie was dialogue like the well-written scenes at the end, and there was, y'know, less about pirates.

Un film qui se regarde mais qui est très convenue et qui manque de profondeur.

The beginning of the decline of Ford's box office downfall, this is actually a lot more pleasant than I remembered it. The chemistry between Ford and Heche isn't fantastic and that's likely where the whole thing is let down most. Reasonably light fun, nothing too offensive here.

Romatic comedy with adventure twists as an unlikely couple, a scruffy pilot and a posh career woman, find themselves stranded on a deserted remote island threatened by pirates. Predictable and sometimes annoying.

Actually quite enjoyable light comedy.

Ok so it's not one of the greatest movies of all time, but still, the flick is very enjoyable. I mean, it's gives you a good time if you're having lunch alone and have nothing better to watch. J/k. Harrison Ford, being an awesome piece of artwork as always, and the cool cat blonde chick tagging along have some serious chemistry on scenes. I bet they had fun filming it. The plot is ok, there were some cheesy part with the supporting actors. However, the sparks in clever conversations make up for em all.

this is one of our favorite movies, SO MANY great lines in it!! Sleeper to some, but we love it!

Every now and then it might be nice if the movie thought about its characters and its own plotline. A very unfortunate venture with too much sap to be worth enduring, the film is ultimately a testament to Ivan Reitman's datedness.

This isn't a bad film, per se. It just isn't a very good one.
