Costner has a free pass to be as lazy as he can possibly be, and the result is one of the most smugly alienating romantic lead performances that I can quickly call to mind.

If only Costner could be cast out to sea like a bottle.

Laying it on a bit thick, am I? Don't worry, so does this film.

"Message in a Bottle" bids Costner a return to his more romantic roots, but since he's in mourning throughout most of the picture, he slips into portraying The Carpenter.

The climactic events are shameless, contrived, and wildly out of tune with the rest of the story. To saddle Costner, Penn and Newman with such goofy melodrama is like hiring Fred Astaire and strapping a tractor on his back.
