These inabilities leave me shaking my head in disbelief; who could possibly find this edifying? Margaret I'll let off this time for her sartorial taste and her skill in accessorising.So away from negativities to what's great; the bleakness of the location, which is actually incredibly beautiful, is no match for the desolation of the social scene, which is killingly mean and harsh. There isn't any story element beyond the grossest [person in disgrace sentenced to stay on remote island] that I can remember elsewhere. Truly disquieting relations between characters. A lot of tension and increasing suspense. Riveting acting, though with Barry Otto there's always an element of satire that it's funny he gets away with. Maybe it's a built in thing that can't be shed, like Kevin Costner's Kevincostnerness that he can never shed [contrast with Daniel D-L the chameleon].This is the sort of Au film I love, along with others like In the Winter Dark, The Tale of Ruby Rose and Perfect Strangers. Not because there's some category called 'Art', to which they are consigned by lovers of the trite and true[ly tedious] standard Hollywood thing, but because they're NEW, intriguing, set in wonderful places and overwhelmingly dominated by natural primeval ambience.

Stuart K (ca) wrote: Directed by Bronwen Hughes (Harriet the Spy (1995) and Stander (2003)), and written by Marc Lawrence (Miss Congeniality (2000), Two Weeks Notice (2002) and Music and Lyrics (2007)), this is a very amusing comedic travelogue which throws two unlikely characters together in situations where anything that can go wrong DOES go wrong. But it is a funny film in parts. Ben Holmes (Ben Affleck) writes summarys on the covers of hardback books in New York City, and he's just about to get married to Bridget (Maura Tierney) down in Savannah, Georgia. He's afraid of flying but he's taking the plane, but when the plane develops a fault on take-off when a bird flies into the engine. Ben finds himself stuck with the free-spirited Sarah Lewis (Sandra Bullock), who he was sitting next to on the plane. Now they have to get down to Savannah by any means necessary, hitchhiking, by bus, by train or by car, but something prevents them from trying to get there, bad weather or a bus full of old people. It's an amusing film, which has a touch of Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987) about it, and it might have set the template for what was to come in Due Date (2010). It has some funny moments in it, but it has a good supporting cast too, including Steve Zahn, Blythe Danner and Ronny Cox.
