a blast from the past is what this flick is. very young Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner put in worthy performances in this fun filled lark. No need to get too deep into the plot as its easy to follow. Suffice to say that my favorite scene was when they came across a crashed plane in the jungle. sit back and let this gem flow over you for an hour and a half of easy watching cinema.

Golden age adventure movie with a bigger budget.

an adventure-packed rom-com. The plot is simple and not overly ambitious. Perfect for snuggling in bed on a rainy day!

It's been around for a time...but it is still a very good movie. Also my 2nd view of it.
