Of all the Raiders of the Lost Ark-inspired films of the 1980s, director Robert Zemeckis' enjoyable romance-comedy-adventure Romancing the Stone might be the best. Zemeckis proved his knack for mixing fast-paced thrills with comedy and character, a quality that would be key to the success of his later Back to the Future. Romancing was rewarded with a huge box-office haul, and it increased the profile of all those involved. On the heels of her breakthrough role as Body Heat's femme fatale, Kathleen Turner thwarted typecasting with a fine comic -- though still sexy -- performance. With his good looks and smarmy style, Michael Douglas became a ****** symbol and an A-list leading man for the rest of the decade. And in his first significant supporting role, Danny DeVito successfully translated his sleazeball caricature from TV to the big screen. Zemeckis would go on to significant commercial and technical success with films such as Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Forrest Gump. Brendon Hanley, All Movie Guide
