 - Joe Versus the Volcano One of the many charms...
Joe Versus the Volcano One of the many charms of this strangely titled movie is its otherworldliness, says Associated Press film critic Bob Thomas, the result of being filmed mostly within the confines of a studio. There are a few cityscapes, but the ocean scenes were shot on a studio tank and the South Sea island is gloriously phony. This is the first comedy hit of the '90s, and Tom Hanks is bigger than ever. He leaves his abominable job in a pharmaceutical supply company after being told he has a fatal disease. He is enlisted by industrialist Lloyd Bridges to travel to the South Sea island of Waponi Woo to act as a human sacrifice to appease the raging volcano, and in the process, Bridges will gain a rare mineral for his superconductor business. Hanks is perfect for the role, Thomas says, and along the way he meets three women, all played by the incredibly inventive Meg Ryan ("When Harry Met Sally..."). — Central Mall Cinema 4, Rated PG
