Kudos go out to both Harrison Ford and Anne Heche, who luckily for the audience, seem to have sparked off a few rays of charm into their characters. The opposite can be said of David Schwimmer, who still cannot seem to play anything but that dolt-headed puppy-eyed love schmuck from his hit TV show "Friends". That aside, I was impressed by his character's real struggle over extra-curricular sexual activities, and the actual conscience that he displayed in its aftermath. Unlike many men in other movies, this character showed us that a man isn't always ready to jump into bed with a chesty knockout at a drop of a dime, but that morals, ethics and one's conscience always play a revolving part in any such decision.
Overall, the film doesn't have many standout scenes to write home about, but does offer some beautiful shots of the island's panoramic possessions, along with some engaging performances by its leads. You'll laugh, you'll sigh, you won't fall asleep and you'll forget about the whole thing in the morning. If these are some of the elements that you are looking for in a short film mixed in with a little adventure, then this one's your bag o' nuts! If not, skip this, and your life will forever be the same for having missed it.
