Movie Info

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

Vibes is a harmless, painless romp but it's an instance of a sincere attempt at screwball comedy that simply got screwed up.

Vibes is a low-vibration romantic comedy about two incompatible psychics falling in love on an Ecuadorean treasure hunt, and everything in it seems nine or 10 beats off.

Luckily, Vibes has those quirky stars, a wacky threesome who give off good vibes under any circumstances.

The romantic suspense soon takes a back seat to some singularly unimpressive special effects.

Vibes has all the ingredients of lighthearted adventure-comedy except the essential one: laughs.

Nobody escapes unscathed from the gimmicky script co-authored by blockbuster comedy writers Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel.

If there were an Academy Award for Most Instantly Forgettable Film, the odds-on early favorite would be Vibes.

Move over Madonna; you'd do well to take some acting lessons from fellow- rocker and screen newcomer, Cyndi Lauper.

For those looking for unintentional laughter in their movies, this one is for you. For those looking for a film to take seriously, beware.

Even the non-discriminating 'tween' would have problems liking this one.

Audience Reviews for Vibes

This was a cool movie, I really enjoyed it. The characters are quirky and fun, the story is exciting and romantic, it's just fun.

I can remember watching this years ago and thinking it sucks. Still pretty much does, only thing of interest is Cyndi Lauper and her 80's outfits and hair. Her character is kind of good as well - I liked the psychic angle, but Cyndi pretty much plays her quirky self.
Plot is lame action adventure with a bit of romance. Not really recommendable unless you like Cyndi, or like 80's movies, and even then...

fluff like cottoncandy, of interest only to fans of the actors. falk steals every scene he's in, goldblum breathes through his nose a lot as if he's about to say something important and lauper (the main reason for this) has a little fun. mandel and ganz, the writers, have moments of good comic misdirection, too.
