15 May - Forces of Nature like was a excellent movie. Sandra
and Ben make the best like ever couple. Sarah's (Sandra Bullock) outfits
are like so in fashion and they like look the best on her. Sandra can like
fit into any fashionable outfits. -- Naquita
20 Apr - Hey, I just saw the movie for the second time today,
and I really liked it again. I think Sandra Bullock and Ben Affleck make
the cutest couple. I was just wondering where Sandra got those AWESOME
clothes? She looks good in anything. I really like Sarah's style in "Forces
of Nature". She looks so free spirited. If anyone has any idea as to where
she got those outfits from the movie I would like to know. Thank you.
11 Apr - Does anyone have access to the quote at the end of the
movie? Ben says it as a voice-over at the very end of the film (when they
are in Hawaii) and it is supposedly from a Bishop in the 16th(?) century.
Any helpful hints would be GREATLY appreciated.
11 Apr - I saw Forces of Nature once and I want to go see it
again. I thought the movie was so good because Sandra Bullock and Ben Affleck
played really good and they a good couple. When I first saw the movie I
thought it was going to be corny but after I saw it I thought it was so
good that I am going to see it again and again. -- Lauren
10 Apr - I believe the song they are talking about is Fear by
Sarah McLachlan. It is on her Fumbling
Towards Ecstasy album. It is at the very end of the movie where
Sandra Bullock is going in to see her son. I hope this helps. --
7 Apr - I was reading your post... I did the same exact thing.
I went out and bought the album and the song wasn't on it! If you happen
to run into this song, please e-mail me what it is... I would really appreciate
it! -- (webmaster comment: if anyone has the answer, let me kow and I will
post it firstname.lastname@example.org)
4 Apr - We just got back from seeing this movie & I have
to say that we were disappointed. Not so much in the movie or acting, but
the ENDING! I know people will say it is realistic or whatever, but
I just don't know what the point of this movie was. All throughout the
film, I thought this was about a soulmate, fate, "forces of nature" type
of thing, but the outcome just defeated the whole title. We weren't alone
in this opinion.... most of the people leaving this film shared the same
29 Mar - Sorry, I don't know the name of the song you were asking
about, but I WAS wondering what you thought of the soundtrack and if it
is worth picking up anyway. How is the cover of "Love the One You're
With," and who is Chris Tart? Thanks. -- Ray
28 Mar - Hey, I just wanted to tell you thanks because I was
about to go out and buy the soundtrack tomorrow for that exact song.. I
assumed it was Enya! Thank you SOOOOOO much for saying that... I wont go
buy it now....and if anybody tells you what it is or how to find it, PLEASE
let me know!!! I loved that song, it was just so perfect....I cried thru
28 Mar - Hi. I saw this movie last night *** I have a favor to
ask.... I am so sick and tired of hearing a great song in a movie, only
to be lead the next day to the store to purchase the soundtrack and be
disappointed when the song I wanted is not on it. This is the case with
forces of nature. In the final scene there is a song playing that sounds
a bit new age/ enya type music and it's not on the sntk. Could you tell
me who the song is by and the name of it if possible. I would really appreciate
it! :) -- (editor - If anyone knows the answer, send it in and I will post
27 Mar - There was a wonderful quote in this movie about commitment
made by a bishop a long time ago. I can't remember the bishop's name,
and I loved it so much I am absolutely desperate to find out who he was
and get my hands on the quote. Can anybody help me. The
line comes at the end of the movie. -- Faye If anyone knows the anser to
Faye's question please e-mail her at Faye
25 Mar - I thought the movie was great. Ben & Sandra are
sensational. Great acting great everything. Ben is so hot. I saw'' Forces
of Nature'' on Friday March 19 at 4:30. I give the movie **** stars out
of 5. great, great, great, great. Ben & Sandra are H.O.T.T. HOT!!!!!
23 Mar - I thought the movie was sweet, fun, and romantic! And
the Strip club scene was so hilarious, I couldn't stop laughing! And even
when there was a kinda boring scene, it was ok because your could drool
over Ben! I really recommend this movie!!! -- Skye, WA.
23 Mar - A HUGE ZERO! A DreamWorks and Sandra Bullock DISAPPOINTMENT!
Trite, pessimistic, stupid script. We walked out too far into the picture.
We kept hoping it would get better, but no dice. A terrible flop.
-- David and Sheila
22 Mar - This was a fabulous movie. It was lighthearted and I
left the movie with a good feeling in my heart. -- fan in AZ
21 Mar - Sandra's baaaaack. Sandra gave the performance those
horrible little critics have been whining for. A performance like the one
she gave in While You Were Sleeping and Speed, refreshing, quirky, curtsey,
etc., etc. Hopefully they will get off her back now, and let the poor girl
just act, which is so painfully obvious what she loves to do. Isn't that
all that really matters. I loved the movie from open to close. I saw it
on Friday, and my sides are still aching from the "Strip Tease" scene.
I get a major case of the giggles, just trying to tell my friends about
it. This movie has it all, comedy, Ben, romance, Ben, dancing, Ben, great
retro furniture, Ben, and most of all, it gives you something to think
about. Believe in Love. Whether it be romantic, friendly, or motherly,
just believe in it. Loved it, Loved it, Loved it. -- Nicole
20 Mar - A really great story where everyone one ends up a winner.
Ben and Sandra are HOT! -- MS Oregon
20 Mar - Great movie with real life ending! -- Fan in W.N.Y.
Fan writes 2 September 98 - Sandra and Ben are still filming
at Dulles International Airport where I work and are projected to continue
filming there through at least Saturday, September 5th. FYI...
Fan writes 26 August 98 - This film is currently being shot in
Richmond Virginia-- at an old motor inn (The Executive). There has
been a large contingency here for over a week.
Send me your comments. I post fan comments.
