||An original screenplay
||Despite what seems to many of us to have been a dire script Marc Lawrence went on to write better films for Sandra Bullock and to direct one.
||Sandra Bullock, Ben Affleck, Maura Tiernwy, Steve Zahn, Blythe Danner, Ronny Cox, David Strickland
||A conservative copywriter, on his way to get married in Savannah, is forced, due to a plane crash, to make alternative travel arrangements in the company of an attractive and extrovert young woman. A hurricane threatens, they are robbed and have to pretend to be married in order to get a free trip with an oldies outing. As time passes the man questions his motives, and wonders whether mariage will bring him happiness.
||There is a batchelor party, a plane crash due to a bird strike, a couple of car trips, time in a train, the oldies outing which involves an overnight in a motel and over time some smart talk and exchanges with people, who have been or are married, as to whether it is a good thing. Some sort of nudity and some discussions about sex, dope smoking and a bit of drinking.
||This cost a lot and despite negative reviews seems to have got its money back. We have seen a lot of travel movies where odd couples are forced together and I don’t know whether this was the first or just a poor example of the grenre. I smiled at 1h 4m and again at 1h 27m. All other Sandra Bullock movies I have seen are better than this.
