After a few weeks of classics that just really didn’t do it for me, I was delightfully surprised by a young Michael Douglas “Romancing the Stone”. But seriously, let’s just take a moment to look at this photo:
Yes. Apparently, I WAS around in 1984 and I never tanned my face. Moving on…
Here are some of my favorite moments from “Romancing the Stone”:
-When the young Michael Douglas was like “Just kidding, carry your own luggage”. And I was all like, “What a jerk!”.
-Then the young, arrogant Michael Douglas (and that other person) slid down the muddy hillside. “That’s what you get!”, I yelled at the TV.
-But then whatsherface see’s an obviously staged skeleton and the young, arrogant, sensitive Michael Douglas comforts her.
-Next, the young, arrogant, sensitive, educated Michael Douglas reads an old copy of Rolling Stone to that one chick while they inhale cannabis over an open flame.
-Then, the young, arrogant, sensitive, educated, nervous, Michael Douglas tries to negotiate his way out of a sticky situation.
-Oh, yeah. And then Danny DeVito shows up a few times. Doesn’t he know that the young, arrogant, sensitive, educated, nervous Michael Douglas isn’t just “some guy”?
-Later, the young, arrogant, sensitive, educated, nervous, suave Michael Douglas puts the moves on the crazy cat lady. Whoa.
-And I almost forgot! They found some fancy stone.
-Lastly, the young, arrogant, sensitive, educated, nervous, suave, loaded Michael Douglas and plain Jane live happily ever after.
Though it’s probably one of the cheesier movies on the list, I truly enjoyed my first watch of “Romancing the Stone”. Bravo to Michael Douglas who also produced this film!
