Overview

Two hapless psychics unwittingly aid a criminal in his quest to obtain a mystic relic in this farcical adventure. Street smart beauty-school dropout Sylvia Pickel (Cyndi Lauper) navigates life with the counsel of a spirit named Louise, while genteel Nick Deezy (Jeff Goldblum) has the ability to "read" an object's past just by holding it. Harry Buscafusco (Peter Falk) is the treasure hunter who brings them together for a trip to Ecuador to find his missing son. Nick and Sylvia don't get on at first, their animosity only amplified by various slapstick escapades that find them posing as siblings and hobnobbing with monied jet-setters. Eventually, Buscafusco's missing-child premise turns out to be a ruse; his true intentions envelop Nick and Sylvia in serious peril just as they're beginning to let down their guard and fall for one another. The action climaxes in a special effects-laden jungle sequence. Vibes marked the screen debut of pop singer Cyndi Lauper, whose single "Hole in My Heart (All the Way to China)" graces the closing credits. Despite the poor box-office results of Vibes and the generally poor reviews for her performance, Lauper would go on to earn an Emmy award for a guest stint on TV's Mad About You and appear with Christopher Walken in the indie drama The Opportunists.

First saw this when it came out years ago. Loved it and remembered it fondly enough to jump at the chance to buy the DVD. Cyndi Lauper and Jeff Goldblum are great in this as quirky oddballs with special mental talents. The visuals in Peru are fantastic.

I think that this is a good movie. Sure it's a little silly and odd at times but that just adds to the fun. It makes me life to see Goldblum play aside Cyndi Lauper. Peter Falk has a great character in any movie that he's in. This is a good family movie in my opinion. Worth watching, expecially if you haven't seen it in a long time.

endearing movie,brings the 80's mood to light, Cyndi Lauper is authentic in this movie. Peter Falk adds additional class to this movie
