She's a girl from the big city. He's a reckless soldier of fortune. For a fabulous treasure, they share an adventure no one could imagine... or survive.
Though she can spin wild tales of passionate romance, novelist Joan Wilder 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...

I hate people comparing Romancing the Stone to Indiana Jones. This is nothing like Indiana Jones except the fact that they share a genre. Romancing the Stone stands very well on its own. No comparison needed.

Excellent actors, great director, and a very good story makes for an excellent evening of entertainment. Recommended to one and all.

Can't honestly say it's a good movie, but it is entertaining! A romantic action-comedy that both guys and girls can enjoy. Most things are over the top (chasing-scenes, dodging bullets) and don't make much sense storywise. The romantic moments aren't awfully romantic and the comedic moments aren't laughoutloud funny, but this movie still manages to provide some mindless entertainment and put a mild smile on your face.

Kind of recommended for a laidback evening with your girlfriend/boyfriend, when you don't really want to focus on the movie, but still want to be entertained. Just don't expect a particularly good movie.
