About the Movie

Laughs erupt when Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan fall in love and fall in lava in Joe Versus the Volcano, a colorful, stylish laugh-quake written and directed by Moonstruck Oscar winner John Patrick Shanley. As Joe, Hanks adds to his phenomenal string of successes that includes, Splash, Big and Turner & Hooch. And Meg Ryan follows up her starmaking When Harry Met Sally... with three roles, playing each of the women in Joe's life. When we first meet Joe, he has the white-collar blues. Every day is Monday, the boss is always in a bad mood and the cumulative stresses convince Joe he has a terminal condition called a "brain cloud." So when a zany jillionaire pops up and offers him a fleeting taste of the good life, Joe leaps at the chance. All he must do in return is leap into a volcano. But funny things happen on the way from the urban isle of Manhattan to the remote tropical isle of Waponi Woo... out of the corporate frying pan.

Customer Reviews

Weird fun fantasy comedy

This movie gets overlooked when people talk about collaborations between Meg Ryan & Tom Hanks. Very interesting performances by Hanks & especially Ryan in some very strange settings. One of my personal favorites.

All time favorite comedy

This movie is loaded with memorable characters, funny re-quotable lines, and the plot is so ridiculous you'd have to have a brain cloud to not enjoy it. One of my all time favorites.

Bad really bad

was the worse movie of the two of them I don recommended at all.
