Forces Of Nature

This film is so enjoyable as you watch it that you don't quite notice that it is somewhat clichd in many parts. 

A 90s update of that old standard, the road movie, Forces of Nature is held together by the good screen chemistry of Sandra Bullock and Ben Affleck.  Bullock plays against type as a free-spirited party girl who tries to loosen up sturdy and slightly stuffy Affleck after meeting cute -- in a plane crash, of all things.  

The situations are always familiar but never predictable and the ending is much more realistic than you would expect. 

There are also very strong supporting turns by Maura Tierney, Ronnie Cox, Blythe Danner and the late David Strickland. 

Forces of Nature is much better than it probably has any right to be. (3/99)
