    If "Romancing the Stone" Was Less Everything
    I'm serious. This movie is Romancing the Stone, but with less humour, more awkward situations disguised as humour, less action, less chemistry, less everything that makes that movie a classic.

    In this one, a romance writer gets caught up in a jungle adventure with her cover model. Everything is clichéd, and the lost tribe is called "The D", which should give you an idea of the level of humour we're at here.

    (D**k jokes abound here, people, and the most lazy kind...)

    Let's leave aside the fact that Fabio-style cover models don't exist anymore, and that the script writer's idea of a romance book tour comes from the minds of 50 year-old dudes, this just isn't great.

    It's so generic, filmed like a big budget TV movie that somehow managed to get some of the world's biggest stars.

    Brad Pitt is a brief highlight, and so is Radcliffe, but Bullock and Tatum just look so uncomfortable and out-of-place throughout.

    (Why didn't they make Pitt the lead? He'd have made this 100 times more entertaining.)

    It's not dreadful. Just generic.

    Nobody behind the camera has any talent, either. The writing and directing and editing and action choreography are Hallmark-movie levels. I've seen a lotta direct to streaming/video movies with better everything. It's so workshopped Hollywood.

    It feels like nobody cared or tried very hard. So why should the audience?

    I'd say watch Romancing the Stone first, then if you're really bored, the sequel, then when you're incredibly in need of a sleep aid, check this out.

    Chances are you'll see it and forget everything about a minute later.
