Robin Monroe, a New York magazine editor, and the gruff pilot Quinn Harris must put aside their mutual dislike if they are to survive after crash landing on a deserted South Seas island.
First high-profile film role for Anne Heche. Two days after being cast in this movie, Heche was introduced to the public at large as Ellen DeGeneres's new girlfriend, leading director Ivan Reitman to say, "We hired a relatively unknown and now she's one of the most famous women in America."
Do you want to stay here tonight?
Frank Martin: Stay?
Angelica: Yeah, with me? I mean you probably think I'm being slutty or something, but you're feeling bad and I'm feeling bad, and I'd really like for you to stay.
Frank Martin: I... I... I just don't
Frank Martin: Yeah!
Robin and Frank are seen arriving and departing Macatea on Aloha Airlines, but the airline never operated anywhere near Tahiti. Before ceasing passenger operations in 2008, it only flew between the Hawaiian Islands, the west coast of the US and Canada, and one weekly round trip to Christmas Island in the Gilberts.

After 9/11/01, the USA network edited the dialogue poorly so that when Anne Heche originally said, "I've flown with you twice, you've crashed half the time," she now says, "I've flown with you twice, you've FLOWN half the time."
