Laughs erupt when Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan fall in love and fall in lava in "Joe Versus the Volcano", a colorful, stylish laughquake written and directed by Moonstruck Oscar winner John Patrick Shanley.

Academy Award-winning screenwriter John Patrick Shanley's first foray into the director's chair is a quirky romantic fantasy, featuring Bo Welch's signature production design. Tom Hanks plays Joe Banks, a man who hates his job, thinks the overhead fluorescent lights are making him sick, and quakes at the presence of his boorish boss Frank Watori (Dan Hedaya). He is attracted to the office secretary DeDe (Meg Ryan) but is afraid to speak to her. Then his life changes when he visits Dr. Ellison (Robert Stack). Dr. Ellison tells Joe that he has something called "a brain cloud" that is rapidly spreading throughout his brain. He will feel great, but he'll be dead within five months. Instead of being depressed at this bleak prognosis, Joe suddenly feels free. He quits his job, asks DeDe out, and is contacted by a rich millionaire named Graynamore (Lloyd Bridges). Graynamore owns an island named Waponi Woo, whose natives need to be placated. The natives require a sacrifice to their island volcano, the Big Woo, so that the island won't sink beneath the Pacific. Graynamore offers unlimited wealth to Tom in exchange for Tom's becoming the object of human sacrifice. Joe has nothing to lose, so he accepts the offer. As he heads out to the island, Joe meets Graynamore's daughters -- Angelica, a Los Angeles socialite, and Patricia, Angelica's blonde half-sister (both roles played by Ryan). Joe arrives at the island, and as he stands at the lips of the Big Woo he has to decide whether he really wants to leap into the maw of the fiery volcano. ~ Paul Brenner, All Movie Guide.

I guess by today's standards it's a bit slow, but it's a great movie. Makes one think about how you live your life. Oh and the value of quality luggage.

BEST Tome Hanks & Meg Ryan oldie flick to watch when you feel down to get you uplifted again. Husband & I watched this for the 1st time when we were going thru some hard financial times. Every time we feel "down" we watch this to give us a "life" which it is guaranteed to do. Buying this one for dear friend diagnosed with cancer to get him thru the "bumps on the road" to recovery!
