Sylvia's shotgun is the infamous "Brute" manufactured in Brazil as a full size double barrel hunting gun, and imported by F.I.E. of Opa-Locka, Fl. (Miami). F.I.E. re-manufactured them by sawing off the barrels to just over the minimum legal length, and cutting off the butt stock behind the pistol grip, again to just over the minimum legal overall length. The Brute is legal to own and can sometimes be found for sale used. A later successor, the "S.O.B." (Son Of Brute) was a single barrel shotgun that got the same treatment. See more »

Jeff Goldblum and Cyndi Lauper are a quirky romantic match
Cheerful, underrated comedy about psychics served as a showcase for pop singer Cyndi Lauper (in her acting debut). She's a comic natural playing Sylvia Pickel, an unlucky-in-love single gal whose "psychic guide" leads her into the arms of fellow clairvoyant Jeff Goldblum (in possibly his smoothest comic performance to date). Both have been duped by con-man Peter Falk into finding a lost city of gold in Ecuador, and for the most part "Vibes" is a funny, knockabout journey with witty vignettes scattered about. The last-act drags its feet, but the script is full of great exchanges and a wonderful scene on the dance floor between the two stars. Lots of amusing one-liners, such as my favorite from Goldblum after Elizabeth Peña disrobes: "Parts of me are already applauding." *** out of ****
