Adrift – Multiple Personality Movie Review – No Spoilers

Adrift is based on the true story of Tami Oldham and Richard Sharp who went sailing in the Pacific in September 1983 and were caught up in Hurricane Raymond, a category 4 hurricane. Of course, the massive storm destroyed the boat they were on and left the survivors out at sea in the middle of the ocean with no way to call for help, leaving them…wait for it…adrift.Adrift is based on the true story of Tami Oldham and Richard Sharp who went sailing in the Pacific in September 1983 and were caught up in Hurricane Raymond, a category 4 hurricane.

This movie jumps back and forth a lot in the timeline. It actually starts you in the moments following the big hurricane tsunami you see in the trailer. It then flashes back to Tami as she first enters Tahiti during her “go wherever the wind takes her” phase of life. This back and forth takes place quite often throughout the movie. It wouldn’t have so distracting if the love story it kept flashing back to wasn’t so boring. Audiences came to watch a big wave and a boat and surviving, not to be lulled to sleep by a love story that happens before the storm. For those looking for action in this movie, all of it happens in the trailer, which you can find online.

Whose Review gives Adrift the overall rating of A-bore. It was too much The Notebook and not enough Castaway. They spent too much time in the first half of the movie building up their love for each other and not showing the aspects of their survival after the storm.
