Movie Review: Romancing the Stone

So every now and then I go on a DVD spree in Amazon and every time I have a theme, like classics or anime. This time I felt I need me some 80s romance! So I went and bought some of my old favorites.

Romancing the Stone is a film I saw when I was a teen and it stuck in my head ever since. It’s the story of a romance novelist, Joan Wilder (Kathleen Turner) who received a treasure map from her dead brother in law. Confused by it, Joan get a phone call from her sister telling her she’s been kidnapped and needs to travel all the way to Colombia to give the kidnappers the map and save her life. So, Joan travels and meets Jack (Michael Douglas) the American smuggle who’s been dreaming to buy himself a boat.

I love this film because it’s such a cheezy story done in an awesome way! Didn’t you ever dream of traveling and having an unexpected adventure?? It is such a short and fun film to watch. An 80s classic. Most of you had probably seen it, but it’s one of those movies you don’t mind watching again once in a while.

It’s personally a special film for me, because it was one of the films that made me want to be a novelist! I love it when she cries in the beginning because she finished writing her book. It’s something I always do.

But enough about me, this is fun for everyone, cus it has romance AND action! There’s car chase, guns and crocodiles. It’s a great package!

There’s a sequel to it to, ‘The Jewel of the Nile’, but I haven’t seen it yet.

Have a nice Saturday everyone!

  1. I agree - I love this film too! The classic romantic comedies with imaginative adventure. When you compare them to today's films, you're left thinking whether there was any thought behind some of them. Bring back some classic romantic adventure!
