80's Psychic Comedy Adventure Double Feature: Part 2
Watching this on a double bill with Second Sight makes it look like Citizen Kane. It's a goofy, light, thankfully coherent, and sometimes funny adventure. I don't want to hype it too much because, truth be told, the first half is pretty ruthlessly mediocre, but once the film moves to Ecuador things pick up.
Goldblum is good, which of course he is. Peter Falk is playing a cartoon character who I found to be amusing. But the revelation for me is that Cyndi Lauper is a shockingly talented actor. Her role has the most challenging material and she nails it. Impressive for a first time actor in a comedy.
This movie is cute. I don't mean that in a pejorative sense. It's literally a cute comedy and it's good. That's it.
