5.0 out of 5 stars Treasure Hunt... Aug. 13 2003
Format:DVD
This review refers to the DVD edition(Twentieth Cent Fox) of "Romancing The Stone"....
I could not even think of going less than 5 stars on this film. It is one that is as enjoyable the 50th time you watch as it was the first. If it was playing on TV, I could not pass it, without stopping to watch it. So when I saw it at such a great price, I could not pass it up. Here's my only problem with it...I'm having a heck of a time trying to decide what genre to put it with. It has something for everybody. Action-Adventure, Comedy, and Romance. It's a Caper and a Cliffhanger.
Here's the story for those that may have missed this gem....
Joan Wilder(Kathleen Turner)is a romance novelist who's hopes and dreams are to be swept off her feet by a man like Jessie, the hero of her adventurous stories. She's about to have her own adventure though, one that includes a man, well... not quite like Jessie,but a hero in his own way, Jack T. Colton(Michael Douglas). He has dreams too. And he's into "short-cuts" to make them come true.
After coming into possession of a mysterious treasure map, Joan finds herself in the jungles of Columbia. She must use the map to bargain for her kidnapped sister's life. Things are not going smoothly though. All kinds of villains are after the map. Enter Jack to the rescue, but are his intentions to help her or is he also after the treasure at the end of the map?? Find out as things go downhill(literally), they are swinging from vines, fighting off crocodiles, and are all the time being chased by bad cops and bumbling thieves, including the likes of Danny DeVito!
Good job by Twentieth Century Fox.I was pretty pleased with the DVD. The picture is one of the better non-anamorphic transfers I have seen.

4.0 out of 5 stars DVD is a fine re-issue of this classic. Aug. 21 2001
Format:DVD
Some have said the transfer to the DVD format is not particularly good. To that I disagree. I just played my new copy yesterday and the picture is very sharp and colors are very accurate. Naturally, the sound suffers in comparison to modern digital 5-channel surround tracks, but overall it is very good. Very good, not superb, and that is why I give this DVD 4 stars. The entire movie itself is a classic and hard to beat for its genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romantic Comedy Adventure: Turner And Douglas May 12 2004
Format:DVD
This 1984 film was the first that brought together the incredible on-screen chemistry of Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas. The film, a romantic and comic version of the Indiana Jones films, involves a romance novelist (Kathleen T) and how she gets wrapped up in a hunt for a rare and valuable diamond. As her love interest and her partner in the search is Michael Douglas. At first, the two don't get along very well. Their fighting and bickering as well as game-playing (they each plan to dump the other and take the diamond for themselves) is only an overture to the subsequent romance and passion that overwhelms them. At the end of the movie, they are on a boat on top of a car in New York City headed for a romantic world travel adventure.
This movie also stars Danny Devito (this team- Turner, Douglas and Da Vito would later make War Of The Roses which was a darker comedy about a nightmare divorce). Danny DeVito is hilarious as he is a shlemiel. The location was shot in South America, specifically Columbia, and the lush scenes of photographic landscapes - jungles, rivers, waterfalls, rapids and villages, make this a very engaging adventure story. Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas are really great together and it is the real salvation of the movie. For Turner's character, her life becomes an adventure and a romance as any of the novels she has written. Highly enjoyable, very comedic and never aging, this movie is a welcome fill for any space in your DVD collection. On DVD, it's even better. Greater color and sound, picture quality and bonus feature such as insight on the film, the actors and commentary.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jewls For Romance May 11 2004
Format:DVD
This is the story of a romance writer, who needs a romance. It's a silly story but fun none the less. It's a chick flick I guess but it's fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great casting Dec 9 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Who knew that Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas would turn out to be such a super casting duo? And then add Danny DeVito to the mix as the inept, addled wannabe villain, and you've got an instant winner. The story line revolves around a romance novelist (Turner) accidentally gone astray in Colombia. Douglas is her opportunistic rescuer/ally, and the pratfalls and plot twists keep coming fast enough to keep an audience on the edge of their seats.

3.0 out of 5 stars Romancing the Stone... Just fun Nov. 15 2003
Format:DVD
A silly, unbelievable romp, but still fun. Michael Douglas does a great job of being unimpressed and annoyed with kathleen Turner's character. I love it when he chops off the heels of her shoes and she bemoans their designer and price. He says, "Now they're practical." the sad thing after this movie they ran the Michael-Kathleen partnership into the ground.

It's a DVD keeper. I'm glad that I purchased this movie.There's not to many movies you can watch over and over,but this one holds a spot in my DVD collection.Romancing the Stone & Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom make a great double feature!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good 'un July 26 2003
Format:DVD
Not much of a fan of either Douglas or Turner, but the "suits" could not have made better choices in their stars. As usual, Danny DeVito takes his part, makes the most of it, and pretty much owns whateve scene he is in.
Much better than the sequel, it's worth seeing and owning.
