Here we go again with another of those movies that nobody likes but me. Judy and I went to see this one in the theater because of the stars. We figured we couldn't go wrong with Cyndi Lauper, Jeff Goldblum, and Peter Falk, and we were right. At least for us. Not for the critics, and probably not for anybody else. We loved it, though.
One reason was Cyndi Lauper, who plays a psychic who has a spirit guide named Louise. Another reason was Goldblum, who's also a psychic, but of a different kind. He can touch an object and its whole history will be revealed to him. A third reason was Falk, who's great as a duplicitous adventurer, a role that echoes his work in The In-Laws He comes up with some lies that are almost as good here, or maybe they're even better. He hires Lauper and Goldblum to accompany him to the Ecuadorean Andes to search for his missing son, but his real purpose is quite different. He's looking for a lost city of gold. I can't resist lost cities of gold, but that's not what they find. I can't tell what that is, though.
There was a twist in this movie that I didn't expect and didn't like until the end, when it all turned out all right. I can say no more about that, either.
I checked out the Rotten Tomatoes rating for Vibes. It's sitting at 6%. This tells you a lot about my taste in movies.
