Overview

Six Days, Seven Nights features an excellent 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. The picturesque greenery, rocky cliffs, and sparkling blue water of the tropical island setting all appear bright and focused, with only a few instances of grain and dirt on the print. The 5.1-channel Dolby Digital audio track is also sharp. The upbeat music moves well through the entire range of the speakers, and gunshots reverberate powerfully from the front speakers. A Dolby Digital French-language track is also available. On the downside, this DVD is a bare-bones release that lacks any notable extra features. It does contain the theatrical trailer in a decent widescreen transfer (along with some laughable recommendations -- Metro and Nothing to Lose -- that have little in common with this film), plus English subtitles and 23 chapter cues. While the Six Days, Seven Nights DVD is technically impressive, it would be improved immensely with better supplemental materials. Even a simple "on location" featurette or fluffy cast interviews would help considerably.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Unfairly, Six Days, Seven Nights got much of its attention because prying minds doubted that Anne Heche could convincingly play the heterosexual lead in a romantic comedy, having just come out as Ellen DeGeneres's girlfriend. That question seems ridiculous in retrospect. Heche and Ford are charming as the stranded duo who fall for each other between bouts of contrived bantering and being chased by pirates. Concessions to silliness aside, the film is more enjoyable than it has any right to be, due in part to director Ivan Reitman's facility for coaxing natural comedy from his stars. The Hawaiian island setting provides good escapism too. Ultimately unsuccessful -- the 75-million-dollar box office was rather small for a summer release starring one of Hollywood's most bankable men -- Six Days, Seven Nights is as fun as it needs to be for a frivolous romp with few ambitions.
