Once upon a time Michael Douglas really was hot. I know that sounds insane but he was. And never more so than in Romancing The Stone, an Indiana Jones rip off that was better than it should have been thanks to a stellar cast.
I love this film, it's another film I first saw with my sister but I can't remember whether we went to see at the cinema or watched it on video. It's a ridiculous story but it's done with charm and wit and Michael and Kathleen had great chemistry. Kathleen Turner is one of my favourite actresses - where is she now? I demand to know. It's been years since she played Chandler's father in Friends.
This film spawned the sequel - Jewel of the Nile - which was pretty terrible but I'll still happily watch it if it comes on television. One mustn't forget Danny De Vito although I want to. I don't really get Danny, I never find him very funny to be honest. Having said that, check out the trailer and watch it to the end. LOVE IT! Danny, you're somewhat forgiven.
