A bog-standard contrived Hollywood date movie in which an ageing Harrison Ford becomes stranded on a desert island with Anne Heche and more importantly, her nipples. It's bearable mainly due to Ford's comic charm, but the slapstick is lame and David Schwimmer might as well just get it over with and change his name by deed poll to Ross Geller. The clumsiness in which the script writer tried to inject some "drama" by having them chased by pirates is laughable and it becomes tedious soon after their arrival.

This critic recalls viewing this on video. It's locations and soundtrack was good. Acting was solid, if only the onscreen chemistry and script were improved. You really don't feel any sparks between Heche and Ford. Six Days, Seven Nights wasn't that bad, but nothing memorable either.

Ford & Heche have some great comedic chemistry - but I never really felt the romance angle. This is a breezy, forgettable adventure/romance film that wants you to feel the sparks, but you never get any real heat.

Not the next African Queen but still okay overall.

If someone told me they were making a movie with Harrison Ford and Anne Heche as this odd couple stranded on a island together, it'd sound terrible. And let me tell you that for the first fifteen minutes, it seemed to go in that direction. But once Anne Heche and Harrison Ford get together, they actually make a funny screen couple with real chemistry. Her character's city-slicker quips against his gruff blue-collar sarcasm gets some good laughs and the script moves at a pleasant pace. David Schwimmer plays Heche's hapless fiance who's stuck with an awful subplot that reverts 'Six Days Seven Nights' into being the terrible movie people were expecting. While I cannot comment on whether or not such a production warranted a $70 million budget (looks nice but not much really happens) I can …

Not bad...but not great either!

New York magazine editor Robin (Anne Heche) travels to the South Pacific with what is supposed to be a romantic vacation with her rich boyfriend Frank (David Schwimmer) of “Friends” but a freak storm leads to the plane crashing on a deserted tropical island leaving Robin alone with her grouchy pilot Quinn (Harrison Ford).

The predictable nature of the movie did not detract from my enjoyment as I watched our two stranded protagonists traverse the island and annoy the hell out of each other while being chased by pirates yea pirates…bet you never saw that coming lol. Unfortunately our mismatched duo has zero chemistry but magnificent scenery more than made up for that. Meanwhile Frank believing Robin dead hooks up with Quinn's big busted girlfriend Angelica.

6 Days, 7 Nights with little comedy and romance

New York magazine editor "Robin" (Anne Heche) goes on vacation with her boyfriend (David Schwimmer) and becomes engaged. As they celebrate on a beautiful tropical island, she gets called back to work and has to charter the plane that brought them to the vacation spot.

While on the flight back, the pilot (Harrison Ford) is forced back to the island due to the weather. Just as the plane levels off after making its turn, a lightning bolt strikes the plane and it crash lands on a deserted island where the two have no choice but to get along -- but they learn to get along very well.

This movie is one of the best acted movies I've seen lately. Heche and Ford stand out, and their chemistry is very good. Schwimmer and Jacqueline Obradors, who plays Ford's much younger lover, also do a …
