Friends and visitors who have a fear of water will need to be dropped by helicopter onto the island residence of Gary and Debbie Schoenemann. Assuming they have no fear of flying. However, few seem to mind the short boat ride from the pier of the Schoenemanns' undeveloped Anne Arundel County beachfront property across 300 yards of sparkling Marley Creek to the couple's 1-acre island. "Our family has owned Brewers Island and the shoreside property for 25 years," said Gary Schoenemann, his hand on the rudder of the skiff.

Within the universe of summer movies, "Six Days, Seven Nights" is respectable enough: Two appealing stars create sparks against a scenically lush backdrop, while requisite moments of crude humor and violent action erupt with assuring regularity.Within the universe of movies in general, though, "Six Days, Seven Nights" sinks like a pretty stone, to be quickly forgotten once the next fluffy star vehicle takes its place.

A low moon rests over the clear South Pacific freckled with black volcanic rocks as Fiji's remote Octopus Resort winds down another evening. Three four-person huts lighted only by glowing lanterns edge the white powder beach that seems to gleam in the night. It is barely 10 o'clock, and after dining on seaweed soup and freshly picked bananas dipped in sugar, then partying with the locals in their kava-drinking ritual, we prepare for sleep. As we gaze past the mosquito netting over our beds, we see the stars and foreign constellations of the Southern Hemisphere through our open windows and hear the hypnotizing rhythm of the ocean.
