When a reclusive romance writer (Kathleen Turner) — whose humdrum life in no way resembles the exploits of her fiery fictional heroines — learns her sister’s been kidnapped, she’s soon embroiled in a wild adventure involving hidden treasure and a dashing mercenary (Michael Douglas).
Director: Robert Zemeckis
STC Genre: Golden Fleece (Buddy)
- “Road” – literally a road to and around Columbia
- “Team” – Joan and Jack
- “Prize” – the original goal is freeing Joan’s sister, but at the end she gets quite a bit more than that
A nicely done action / comedy / romance film. The two main lead characters are perhaps the most opposite of each other, and all the great conflicts and comedic tension that comes with it. Very well done, very enjoyable movie.
