When Flynn and Nicole are walking through the Amazon Jungle, Flynn says something to Nicole, to which she replies "Be still my heart". ER: Be Still My Heart (2000) was the ER episode (season 6 episode 13) where the character played by Noah Wyle (who plays Flynn in the Librarian) is stabbed and almost dies. See more »
In Shangri-La, Edward jacks the action of his handgun three separate times without ever firing it. Loading a round into the chamber once would have been the most needed. See more »

This movie is light-hearted and fun. Shows that even intellectuals can be adventurous, and good guys can win. The historical and mythical artifacts were terrific, and their basic premise sheer inspiration. The various locations around the world added an interesting element with exotic lands and beautiful scenery. Also, the existing and developing relationships were handled in a believable fashion. Great work by the main character, who is versatile, entertaining and talented. Also appreciated the "side-kick" who had many skills and provided some counterpoint to the bad guys. Would love to see a sequel with the same characters, maybe picking up where this one left off.
