When her sister is kidnapped by thugs searching for a priceless jewel in Colombia, a romance novelist (Kathleen Turner) soon find her own life filled with adventure. She sets out to rescue her sister and meets up with a handsome fortune seeker (Michael Douglas) who convinces her to beat the bandits to the treasure.
Director Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Contact) had a hit with this 1984 comedy that first teamed Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and Danny DeVito. Turner steals the show from the guys, however, playing a pushy romance novelist who gets stuck among some dangerous figures in Colombia and has only a rumpled guide (Michael Douglas) as an ally. The chemistry between the stars in Romancing the Stone is infectious (the trio went on to make a sequel, The Jewel of the Nile and then an interesting, dark comedy directed by DeVito, The War of the Roses). Zemeckis--whose speciality at the time was creating set pieces of raucous action (as in his Back to the Future)--keeps things hopping with lots of kinetic material. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Overall, this is a big step up from the dvd version and it should please fans of the movie.
But British fans of both films should note that the 'US' 20th Century Fox BLU RAYS of each are REGION A LOCKED - so they will not play on our machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' (which few are).
Stick with the now released UK versions – and wait until they hit the ‘2 for £10’ lists. They look better than the DVDs I’ve had all these years and both movies are as memory-refreshing as stumbling on a Grateful Dead jacket in the pilot’s seat of a crashed plane…
If you liked Indiana Jones or Sahara you will love this.
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 down right 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 can not 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.
If you like juggle adventures with home bound people do not miss "Call Me Bwana" (1963) with Bob Hope
All that changes when her sister is kidnapped down in Columbia. She quickly takes off to ransom her, bringing the treasure map that the kidnappers demand. But when she gets on the wrong bus, she is stranded and meets up with Jack T. Colton (Michael Douglas), an American. Unfortunately, she is being followed by several goons. Can Jack keep her safe? Will Joan ever find true love? Who will get the treasure? And will Joan's sister be rescued?
This movie is obviously 80's fluff with plenty of cheese, and some of the effects show their age. But it is plenty of fun. After a slow start, the film quickly picks up speed and become quite addicting. There are several great action sequences. But there are also plenty of laughs between the one liners and the bumbling bad guy played by Danny DeVito. I felt the romance was rather forced most of the time, but by the end I bought into it.
The film is rated PG, but that is only because PG-13 hadn't been invented yet. The film is filled with bad language, mostly the "S" word, and there's plenty of violence to go around as well.
Mostly, this is a fun though dated adventure romance. It should please just about everyone who can enjoy the 80's feel.
We recommend seeing them together, and not as individual films, althugh they can be seen seperately but better together as the Jewel follows on from Romancing.
