Before directing classics such as Back to the Future and Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (and the creepy motion-capture flicks), Robert Zemeckis directed this "hidden gem" that took me by surprise.
A passionate romance writer named Joan Wilder (Kathleen Turner) seeks out to find her kidnapped sister in Cartegena, Colombia. However, she accidentally takes the wrong bus thanks to the kidnappers. Fortunately, the fearless Jack T. Colton (Michael Douglas) arrives to help her while he seeks the valuable jewel El Corazon before the criminals do. The moment I see Kathleen Turner act like how fanfic writers act, I know what I'm in for. Speaking of, the protagonists are quite likable, and you want to relate to them. It's also fun and thrilling. I actually recommend that you see this for yourselves!
My rating: 7.5/10
