There used to be numerous newspaper cartoons about stranded castaways on tiny islands tossing bottles containing messages into the ocean. However the place, oh where, did they get the film’s ending? Is it in the unique novel, “Message in a Bottle,” by Nicholas Sparks ? Do not know. Haven’t learn it. The climactic events are shameless, contrived, and wildly out of tune with the remainder of the story. To saddle Costner, Penn and Newman with such goofy melodrama is like hiring Fred Astaire and strapping a tractor on his again.
The movie is about a man and a woman who imagine in nice real love. The person believes it’s behind him; the woman hopes it is forward of her. One in every of their ideals in life is “to be somebody’s true north.” Straight away we know they’re in hassle. You do not just find true love. You team up with somebody, and build it from the ground up. However “message in a bottle for her in a Bottle” believes in the type of love where the romantic music comes first, trembling and sweeping below each scene, and the dialogue is handled just like the lyrics.
