Joe Versus the Volcano (1990)

joe_versus_volcanoBy Scott Goldfine

Tom Hanks stars as Joe, a man who starts living it up after learning he only has a few months left to live in this fantasy-comedy. Seeking to go out in style, Joe volunteers to sacrifice himself into a small island’s volcano.

Hanks and love interest Meg Ryan are endearing, and there are scant instances of inspired lunacy, but this film is mostly awful. Also stars Lloyd Bridges, Robert Stack, Abe Vigoda and Dan Hedaya. Rated PG.
