Mild-mannered author Joan Wikder (Kathleen Turner) suddenly finds herself at the center of an adventure right out of one of her own romance novels when her sister is kidnapped. Joan flies to Colombia, where she meets dashing exporter Jack Colton (Michael Douglas) and finds love and intrigue as she hunts for the hidden treasure at the center of her sister's kidnapping plot. Danny DeVito costars in this deliriously entertaining blend of romance, comedy, and action.
Screenwriters Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis simultaneously satirize and celebrate what it means to be successful in America in this hilarious tale of a used-car salesman (Kurt Russell) who will do anything to hold onto his lot and make a sale. Jack Warden gives one of the best performances of his career as twin brothers who own rival dealerships where the gimmicks become increasingly outrageous as the competition escalates; Russell is at his most charming as a cynical variation on the Capra-esque hero.
