This movie always cheers me up!
14 May 2000 | by (Taipei, Taiwan) – See all my reviews

This is a lovely story of two psychics (Cyndi Lauper and Jeff Goldblum) being hired by Harry (Peter Falk) to look for his missing son, but later realize that he actually wants them to help him find a rumored "room of gold" in the deep mountains. In the end another team of searchers joins them to discover the greatest psychic energy in the world - the so-called room of treasure.

The plot is adventurous, mysterious and hilarious. Lauper's performance is surprisingly stunning and funny, the scenery and the soundtrack are both beautiful, the movie is wonderfully shot in Ecuador and full of witty remarks. Whenever I feel a bit low I'll play the video for "Vibes" and then I'm full of joy again. I am well-entertained by this nice, interesting work. Watch it, you won't be disappointed.
