Forces of Nature Details


Ben ([[Performer~P426~Ben Affleck~benaffleck]]) has two days to get from New York to Savannah, Georgia for his wedding to Bridget Cahill ([[Performer~P70973~Maura Tierney~mauratierney]]). Everything is running smoothly until his plane skids off the runway. Ben inadvertently saves the life of his seatmate, Sarah ([[Performer~P9472~Sandra Bullock~sandrabullock]]), who becomes his companion for the longest two days of his life. As fate begins to repeat itself through a series of disasters involving a rental car, a train, and a bus (not to mention a hurricane), Ben has to wonder if someone's trying to give him a message. Inevitably, he also finds himself falling in love with Sarah. Meanwhile, Bridget wonders where, exactly, Ben is, and her old boyfriend Steve ([[Performer~P240854~David Strickland~davidstrickland]]) attempts to take advantage of the situation. Not that Bridget's dad ([[Performer~P15487~Ronny Cox~ronnycox]]) really minds, since Steve is much more successful than Ben. En route, Ben and Sarah collide with Ben's best man, Alan ([[Performer~P212137~Steve Zahn~stevezahn]]) and his girlfriend, the maid of honor ([[Performer~P196840~Meredith Scott Lynn~meredithscottlynn]]), which further adds to the series of cosmic tests that Ben must try to answer. ~ Ron Wells, Rovi
