Romancing the Stone--Romance and Adventure all in

by DJB on 5/9/2013

Romancing the Stone--one of my favorites! It combines romance, adventure and comedy perfectly and no matter how many times I watch it I always enjoy it---especially the sassy dialog between the stars! (see also: The War of the Roses-- Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner go together like Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks!) Besides the romance, comedy and adventure there is also beautiful scenery, shot in exotic locales. Many thanks for another great deal on an old favorite. :) Read More

Editors Note
Note Though she can spin wild tales of passionate romance, novelist Joan Wilder (Kathleen Turner) has no life of her own. Then one day adventure comes her way in the form of a mysterious package. It turns out that the parcel is the ransom she'll need to free her abducted sister, so Joan flies to South America to hand it over. But she gets on the wrong bus and winds up hopelessly stranded in the jungle--until she encounters Jack Colton (Michael Douglas), a man who could have stepped straight out of one of her novels.^Though his good looks and intrepid moves dazzle her, Joan quickly sees Jack for the cheap opportunist that he is. But he's all she's got, so together they journey out of the jungle, battling mudslides, druglords, crazed treasure-hunters--and each other. Along the way, Joan discovers she's tougher than she ever thought, tough enough to rescue her sister, and tough enough to fall in love with the troublesome Jack.
Plot Summary
Summary The peaceful existence of romance novelist Joan Wilder is abruptly turned upside down when she receives a map in the mail from her recently murdered brother-in-law.

ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review It may have an awkward title, but "Romancing the Stone" is a silly, high-spirited chase picture that takes us, as they say, from the canyons of Manhattan to the steaming jungles of South America. The movie's about a New York woman who writes romantic thrillers in which the hungry lips of lovers devour each other as the sun sinks over the dead bodies of their enemies.
