It's a very, very good romantic comedy with a funny script, witty direction, great tropical locales, and an eclectic but engaging supporting cast.A crusty pilot-for-hire is trapped on a tropical island with a fashion magazine executive.The only plane available is piloted by a laid-back heavy drinker with whom she shares a mutual dislike.
Griffith sleepwalked through that script whereas Heche embraces her character fully.
She also starred in the television series Men in Trees (2006–08), Hung (2009–11), Save Me (2013), Dig (2016), and Aftermath (2016). "But I got on the phone and said, 'Send me the ticket. ' I did my time with my mom in a one-bedroom, skanky apartment and I was done." For her work on Another World, Heche received a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series in 1991.
When asked in a 2001 interview on Larry King Live what her father's source of income was, Heche replied, "Well, he was a choir director. He said that he was involved in a business of gas and oil. But he never was involved in the business of gas and oil ever." On March 3, 1983, when Heche was thirteen, her 45-year-old father died of AIDS, although he never came out as a homosexual. In November 1991, Heche made her primetime television debut in an episode of Murphy Brown.
She made her TV-movie debut the following year with a brief appearance in the Hallmark Hall of Fame presentation of O Pioneers! In 1993, Heche made her feature film debut in Disney's The Adventures of Huck Finn with Elijah Wood.
Over the next two years, she had small supporting roles in made-for-TV movies such as Girls in Prison (1994) and Kingfish: A Story of Huey P. She also appeared in the straight-to-video erotic thriller Wild Side (1995) as Joan Chen's lesbian lover.
