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.

Excellent movie. Saw it years ago, and wanted to watch it again. Set mainly in a south american country, where a valuable jewel was hidden by a man who was now dead. Somehow, this woman came by a map of where the stone could be found, and went to the country with the intention of recovering it. However she was kidnapped, only for the kidnappers to learn that the map was not in her possession.

Her sister was somehow contacted and flew down to try to get her sister released, but trying to make her way to the town where the map was (I believe left in an hotel room) she got on the wrong bus, which had an accident enroute, and she ended up stranded in the jungle with a crook who was on the same bus who attempted to steal her suitcase and presumably the map.
I've forgotten most of the details now, but by luck in trying to escape from the crook, she came into contact with a handsome American, who helped her in her quest.
All I can say is that after a considerable adventure, all turned out for the best in the end.

Format: Blu-ray
As the story starts we are treated to a realistic western and look back at the cover to be sure we have the correct DVD. Yep it is the correct one.

A romance novelist, Joan Wilder (Kathleen Turner of "Body Heat" 1981 fame) wants to fall in love with the type of hero she created in her novels. Fat chance she has hanging around her New York City apartment.

Perchance her sister Elaine (Mary Ellen Trainor), looking for the other body parts of Elaine's dismembered husband, is kidnapped and ransomed by ruthless people, (Danny DeVito and Zack Norman.)
This just happens to be in Columbia. It seems that there are other interested parties that are downright vicious.

Will Joan Wilder find the type of romance she writes about or just a snot?

Prepare for a great adventure.
----------

The movie was filmed in Mexico. I have not been to Columbia but I have seen several of the places in Mexico. It does not diminish the film what so ever.

I saw this film several times previous to the Blu-ray packaging and I really cannot say if the resolution or jut big screen TV makes a difference. However looking at the extra footage make me feel that they did a good job of restoration.

The Blu-ray edition has several extras.
Danny explains why he likes to use the word "maricon!"
The deleted scenes are really alternate scenes.

I would rate this as a four star, just because it is fun and easy to watch without being overly mushy. Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas have worked well together and produce the compatible nature that makes the movie both an adventure and a Romance.

A good movie for a Saturday night with pop corn and a pizza.

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.
