John:  So, what are you doing tonight Tanis?

Tanis:  Uh, I think I’m just gonna stay in and watch a movie with my boyfriend.

John:  Oh yeah? What are you gonna see?

Tanis:  I think, uh, we have Six Days, Seven Nights. But, neither one of us has seen it yet, so I don’t know. Have you heard anything about that movie.

John:  No. You know I remember when it came out. Isn’t that the one with Harrison Ford?

Tanis:  Yeah, it’s Harrison Ford and Anne Heche and all I know is that my parents loved it, which makes me wonder if I’ll like it or not.

John:  Is it… I… now I know it’s not a comedy. Is it a thriller, er… is it? What kind of movie is it?

Tanis:  I thought that it was a comedy. I thought it was kind of a romantic adventure comedy or something.

John:  So Harrison Ford is playing a comedy role, huh?

Tanis:  Well…

John:  I don’t know, ‘cause he’s not very funny to me.

Tanis:  He’s kinda funny sometimes.

John:  Yeah but he always plays like that patriot role, you know, where he’s, you know, where he’s always like serving the government in some role, or…

Tanis:  Right. Defending the honor of some woman, or the country, or himself…

John:  Exactly. Is he doing that in this? Is he defending her honor, or…?

Tanis:  I think that what it was is that he’s really, um, sort of this strong-willed, stubborn person and so is she, and they end up getting, uh, they have a plane wreck, and they end up on a desert island…

John:  Huh.

Tanis:  And then they have to, you know, come together to overcome the obstacles to get off.

I don’t really know!

John:  All right. OK. Well, why don’t you fill me in on Monday.

Tanis:  You got it.

John:  OK. Thanks.

I guess we’ll see if Tanis likes the movie.
I already saw Six Days, Seven Nights, and I actually liked it. It wasn’t a great story, but I really like both Harrison Ford and Anne Heche, so I was entertained. I’m not surprised that it didn’t win any awards, but it’s a good movie for a relaxing evening at home.
Do you think Harrison Ford is funny? Have you seen Six Days, Seven Nights? Let us know! Come to the “Movie Madness” message board.
