Cheerful, underrated comedy about psychics served as a showcase for pop singer Cyndi Lauper (in her acting debut). She's a comic natural playing Sylvia Pickel, an unlucky-in-love single gal whose "psychic guide" leads her into the arms of fellow clairvoyant Jeff Goldblum (in possibly his smoothest comic performance to date). Both have been duped by con-man Peter Falk into finding a lost city of gold in Ecuador, and for the most part "Vibes" is a funny, knockabout journey with witty vignettes scattered about. The last-act drags its feet, but the script is full of great exchanges and a wonderful scene on the dance floor between the two stars. Lots of amusing one-liners, such as my favorite from Goldblum after Elizabeth Pe?a disrobes: "Parts of me are already applauding." *** out of ****

Jeff Goldblum and Cyndi Lauper are a quirky romantic matchReviewed bymoonspinner55Vote: 7/10
I know its a cheesy movie, but overall it was entertaining and fun. I'm also Ecuadorian and I come from the place where they shoot the film, Cojitambo (Ca?ar, Ecuador). This movie brings good memories for me, since I can see some known people from my village and my elementary school.
daria84 says "they showed an awesome footage of Ambato (a City located in the highlands) in the end of the movie when Sylvia is out in the balcony", let me tell you that's not Ambato, but that's Cojitambo's Hill shot from Azogues. If you don't believe me, search online for "Cojitambo" and you will see.
Whatever the quality of the acting, the scenery, the locations etc., this movie is just good clean fun - so much so that you can see the actors themselves grinning during certain scenes.
There are some great one-liners, some unique actions - find the "handshake" at the racetrack for a good example.
The opening music is dramatic (low end's are cool) and Cyndi's closing number is a classic.
Yes, this film is not as sophisticated as many others but who want's sophistication all the time? I've chilled out in front of this movie several times and find it as endearing and never one I'd want to sleep through!
If you get a chance to see it, then do so - chill out, have a laugh!
