A depressed woman learns that her husband was killed in a car accident the previous day, then awakens the next morning to find him alive and well at home; then awakens the day after that to find that he's dead.
Ben Holmes, a professional book-jacket blurbologist, is trying to get to Savannah for his wedding. He just barely catches the last plane, but a seagull flies into the engine as the plane is taking off. All later flights are cancelled because of an approaching hurricane, so he is forced to hitch a ride in a Geo Metro with an attractive but eccentric woman named Sarah.Written by

In a scene early in the movie, the two leads are shown sitting in an outdoor location in front of a large rusty globe. This location is in the city of Savannah, although the two characters have not reached Savannah by that point of the story. See more »
When Sarah is talking to her ex-husband in front of the bagel shop, the sky is supposedly very cloudy because of the storm, yet we see sunlight casting shadows on the street. See more »
Bridge, ya know, I mean, what I always thought was that there was this one, one perfect person for everybody in the world, you know, and when you found that person, uh, the rest of the world just kinda magically faded away and... and you know, the two of you would just be inside this kind of protective bubble. But there is no bubble, or if there is, we have to make it. I just think life is more than a series of moments, you know, it's... it's... we can make choices and we can choose to protect ...

Forces of Nature isn't a very deep film. It isn't fluff, and it's isn't unimaginative either. Sandra Bullock in her role as Sara, who stars opposite Ben Affleck was aptly cast. I can't pick a better actress for the part, and the things that pop out of her mouth are unexpected and just plain funny. Yes, there's a little bit of drama involved, but overall, it's a comedy like Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. And you should watch it as a sort of free-wheeling comedy. Overall, not a bad film. I wouldn't consider it Bullock's best, but it's definitely not her worst either. If you're looking for a light-hearted, plot packed, rainy day movie to watch, then this is the movie for you. Overall, I give it a C+.
