Loved this film!! Watched it yesterday and I would recommend it to fans of romance. However, I do have to agree with some of the reviews on here. It is a movie about them being shipwrecked on an island and not once do they show signs of trying to survive - miraculously they find coconuts etc. Have not seen the original (not much of a fan of old movies that have not been produced well) but this is definitely a great movie, even though it is highly unrealistic. Two things that angered me where:
a) They don't hunt/find food in any way. I think there was just one scene where he tries to fish, but that's about it and he doesn't get anything. She keeps moaning about how long they're going to survive when they're not even making an effort.
b) They keep having sex, repeatedly, without protection, knowing they're stranded on an island and she could get pregnant and have to deliver without a HOSPITAL. She worries about them 'breaking bones' or 'getting illnesses' but she doesn't realise what carrying a child for nine months and then giving birth could do?
Anyway, when you really like a movie, you tend to overlook these things and trust me, there is a lot of stuff that just blows you away. Love this so much and definitely want to watch it again; might even watch the older versions. I know there's several!
