Six Days, Seven Nights


Ah, the busy urban woman — all she needs is a rugged manly man to set her straight. So we were told by The Horse Whisperer, and so we are told again bySix Days Seven Nights, the latest bland throwback pretending it isn’t one. Here, the overworked woman is Anne Heche, who gives the movie a lot more wit and spark than it deserves, and is rewarded by being put through the standard simplify-your-life drill. You know, lots of women work at magazines and supervise photo shoots. They can’t all be yearning for the Marlboro Man to Calgon them away from their lives.

As the movie opens, Heche’s Robin Monroe (half sidekick, half blonde bombshell?) is involved with an unabashedly romantic guy who has the misfortune to be played by David Schwimmer. They fly to a vacation paradise, courtesy of gruff pilot Quinn Harris (Harrison Ford), and as soon as Robin meets Quinn you know it’s all over for Schwimmer; he might as well just go home and sit out the rest of the movie. Which he practically does, anyway. A business emergency forces Robin to fly over to Tahiti in the middle of her vacation, she pays Quinn $700 to get her there, and a storm knocks the plane down onto some remote island en route.

The fact that I was so conscious of the script’s mechanics — how conveniently it sets up the romance between Robin and Quinn — told me it wasn’t working. Six Days Seven Nights is reasonably painless for a while, because Heche and Ford have an off-center rapport; she gets Ford to loosen up, and I chuckled at him a few times. Still, all I responded to was the actors having fun on the set. I never bought the growing love between the two, because they’re essentially pale copies of Bogart and Katharine Hepburn in one of the main templates for this sort of opposites-attract comedy, The African Queen. Ford, if anything, is a little too hearty here. When he talks about a lost love, his words have no weight. And he overplays his drunk scene (which he didn’t do in Raiders of the Lost Ark, where he seemed to have more depth and experience at 38 than he does here at 55).

About halfway through, the movie goes to Hollywood hell. Director Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) and rookie screenwriter Michael Browning come up with a band of pirates, with such great iconic character actors as Temuera Morrison (a long way from Once Were Warriors) and Danny Trejo among the villains trying to kill Quinn and Robin. The pirates add nothing to the plot; they’re there to keep it going, but they just bring it to a halt. Meanwhile, Schwimmer sits around at the vacation paradise and somehow catches the eye of Quinn’s ripe young girlfriend (the cheerfully one-note Jacqueline Obradors) — a surpassingly synthetic plot device meant to grease the wheels for guilt-free infidelity all around.

Ivan Reitman has never been an artist, but at least when he first came to Hollywood his comedies had a scruffy charm; movies like Meatballs, Stripes and Ghostbusters now seem in retrospect to owe much of their appeal to Bill Murray. Reitman now makes Hollywood entertainment that is perfectly handsome (cinematographer Michael Chapman does some fine, burnished work here) and perfectly banal (Randy Edelman’s score is like a glaze of generic-comedy music shellac over everything). The question of whether audiences will accept Anne Heche as a hetero partner for Harrison Ford turns out to be irrelevant. The question is really whether audiences will accept this same old plastic stuff again. I’d guess they won’t. I hope not, anyway.

Dr. Oz and Team Discover $5 Solution to a Wrinkle Free Face - Diane Keaton EXPOSES IT ALL!

Diane exposed a HUGE celebrity secret to erase wrinkles - without botox or surgery!

How do Hollywood starlets look so radiant and youthful well into thier 40's, 50's, and even 60's? Is it always expensive botox and dangerous plastic surgery? According to Diane Keaton, the answer is NO! So if they aren't all using surgery to stay looking great, what is their secret? Keep reading, it's excitingly effective, safe, and cheap!
A few weeks ago on The Ellen Show, Diane shared the secret Dr. Oz has been giving celebrity clients who want to look 10 to 15 years younger fast, but are scared of the potential risks of surgery or botox. We were so suprised by how shockingly simple, cheap, and effective his technique was, we had to test it ourself and write a feature article on the results! Read on...

“Countless aging celebs admit they avoided surgery and look 20 years younger thanks to Dr. Oz's simple advice.”

The Best Skin Solution You’ve Never Heard Of

Dr Oz had always kept this wrinkle secret reserved for his high paying celebrity clients...until now. Diane said she felt like she had to let her fans know because she was tired of hearing the countless stories of her viewers throwing away thousands of dollars on expensive anti aging products or dangerous surgical procedures that make big promises that often do far more harm than good. As a result, a few weeks ago she shared the simple solution he had previously only shared with his celeb clients to everyone watching Ellen!
He actually discovered this anti aging miracle when multiple celebrity friends and clients were constantly reaching out to him hoping for a solution to look younger to prolong their career without going in for surgery.

“I looked 15 years younger in literally 2 weeks! Dr. Oz literally saved my acting career.” -Diane Keaton, 51
Diane revealed Dr. Oz was thrilled when after months and months of pain staking tests and research, his team came across 2 products that when combined literally took 10 to 20 years off women’s appearance in just a month. More shockingly it is safe, and costs next to nothing! The two products were revealed to be Tru Visage Anti Aging Formula and PurEssance Wrinkle Reducer Formula.
“This is the anti aging miracle of the decade as far as I'm concerned.” Martha Stewart, 73

So what is it?

2 Key Ingredients For Anti Aging:

These are both natural ingredients that work together to erase wrinkles and fine lines at the cellular level – below the surface of the skin – which is why they’re so effective.
Vitamin C, The Fountain of Youth:
The first piece of the anti aging puzzle Dr. Oz discovered was Vitamin C.
Vitamin C penetrates deep into damaged skin and stimulates new collagen – a protein which makes skin appear plump and firm. It's all the rage in beauty circles, much in part because of a 2009 study stating, applying non-prescription Vitamin C to your skin caused a 60% reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. Dr. Oz said this is why Tru Visage Anti Aging Formula is so effective. It was one of the few products on the market that had Vitamin C in the right consistency and dosage.

Hyaluronic Acid:
He said the second piece, when combined properly with Vitamin C, literally makes your face look two decades younger in weeks! Hyaluronic Acid works by binding to moisture. It can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, making it an excellent natural skin plumper. Hyaluronic acid helps your skin repair and regenerate itself after suffering from dryness, environmental stresses, or irritation. He said one of, if not the only products you can buy over the counter with an effective concentration of Hyaluronic Acid was found inPurEssance Wrinkle Reducer Formula .

"How do I do it?"

It's acutally very simple. You simply use both products before bed. Diane states, "The trick is to combine Tru Visage Anti Aging Formula and PurEssance Wrinkle Reducer Formula. These two products both contain high concentrations of pure Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid in just the right concentrations. His team also discovered that they contain all sorts of anti-oxidants, an ingredient called Dermaxyl (also known as facelift in a jar) and Ester-C (the active anti-aging compound in Vitamin C).

We Decided to Put it to the Test!

As excited as we were after the show and after getting a flood of letters, we wanted to try it for ourself before we wrote this feature piece praising it. We decided to take a volunteer from someone in our office. Let me introduce Brenda Wright, a 57 year old mother of 3 who jumped at the chance to test this combo. Here is her story...

Brenda's Story & 14 Day Cell Revival Results:

Brenda is a 57 year old mother of 3 from here in Chicago. Like most women her age, the years have started to give her unwanted lines and wrinkles. Brenda said she volunteered because she is so frustrated that nothing she has tried seems to work. She was even considered highly risky and very expensive facelift procedure. This was somewhat of a last resort for her.

The Crazy, All-Night Goldman Sachs Scavenger Hunt

One Saturday evening last fall, some 180 Goldman Sachs employees assembled at a dock along the East River of Manhattan, divided into 20 teams. Standing on a platform overlooking the crowd was Mat Laibowitz, an impresario-mad-scientist-type dressed in a red t-shirt printed with the words Game Master. Laibowitz handed each team captain a white, semi-opaque plastic cube the size of a tissue box and a blue plastic bag containing the following items: a sealed pack of Wacky-Packages-brand bubble gum cards, a glossy foldout with the heading "Seating chart for Kevin Bacon's wedding," a slip of paper with a three-stanza poem, and a note that read:
Thus began Midnight Madness, a geeky, over-the-top scavenger hunt played by a group of Goldman's New York City financiers and some of their friends with expenses totaling roughly $270,000 for a single evening of play. It raised $1.4 million for charity. The game, which Laibowitz originally co-founded in 1996 with Columbia University buddy Dan Michaelson, requires teams to solve a series of mind-bending puzzles placed around New York City. Deciphering one puzzle points players to the location of the next puzzle, and so on.
