Turner is terrific, Douglas is fine and the action is slam-bang. Add lots of laughs and it all works out just right.

Romantic adventure has thrills, racist stereotypes.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Romancing the Stone has violence, profanity, sexual situations, and racist depictions of Colombians in what is otherwise an action-packed adventure movie with a strong female lead. The baddest of the villains has his hand bitten off by a crocodile, which is then completely devoured (off-screen) by a pit full of crocodiles. There's also a fair bit of swearing, a couple of stabbings, and gun fights. Breasts are visible through a wet cotton top, and there's plenty of sexual innuendo. The two leads end up together in bed, though there's no nudity. Colombian men are depicted as violent, corrupt, and dangerous. Language includes expletives like "God," "bastards," and "son of a bitch," and "a--hole" is used once. Slurs like "spico" and "maricon" are glibly used by a kidnapper.
