Turn off your brain for 90 minutes, it won't kill you
29 April 2002 | by lawnboy-5See all my reviews

"Vibes" is a totally fun, light, cotton-candy puff of a movie and a bit more. The plot is stupid but still hilarious, and Cyndi Lauper turns in a surprisingly (or not surprisingly) wonderful debut performance as an ultra-quirky psychic. Incidentally, the track she recorded for this movie- "Hole in my Heart (That goes all the way to china)"- is awesome, and arguably the best song she ever made after the "She's So Unsual" era. The rest of the cast is also a pleasant surprise. A colourful, cute little bubblegum flick...you can rent "Apocalypse Now Redux" another day.
