- 7. SIX DAYS, SEVEN NIGHTS 5.8 million last week, 56.9 million over four weeks Disney
Number seven for "Six Days, Seven Nights" might mean we're about to say good night to this one which calculated badly in casting Anne Heche, who is flaunting her lesbian affair with Ellen, with the likeable Harrison Ford. Ford fans, count us among them, feel betrayed and have stayed away from this one in droves. Too bad, it could have been a wonderful, fun movie. Whatever happened to the chemistry Ford had with Karen Allen in "Raiders of the Lost Ark"? For our money that is still the most enjoyable movie of our time. But then we grew up on the Saturday morning and movie matinee serials. Below is the Bishops' review:
Six Days, Seven Nights-- Because of brief violence, some sexual innuendo, recurring profanity
and an instance of rough language, the U.S. Catholic Conference classification is A-III -- adults.
The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned that
some material may be inappropriate for children under 13. "Six Days, Seven Nights" is a mildly
comic adventure in which Harrison Ford and Anne Heche crash land on an uninhabited tropical
island where they must fend off pirates from the sea and an unwanted mutual attraction. The
tired formula is made palatable by the airy banter between appealing performers in an otherwise
completely predictable movie.
