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

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
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.
The miscast and downright miserable company attempts zaniness against the exotic South American backdrop.
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.
Who sanctioned this?
Audience Reviews for Vibes
- Harry Buscafusco: Maybe she bounced, like, out of the hotel. Women are soft.
- Sylvia Pickel: 'You Jerk! I had that guy eatin' outta my hand. Literally! Look! There's STILL MELON!
- Nick Deezy: Your major life decision is probably, 'How high should I comb my hair today?'
- Sylvia Pickel: My last boyfriend was a guy that drank soup by puttin' his head in it.
