Jeff Goldblum teams up with the one and only Cyndi Lauper – in her big-screen debut – as a pair of mismatched psychics hired by Peter Falk to travel to Ecuador and search for an ancient alien pyramid that holds all the world’s interdimensional power…
Hot off his success in The Fly, what better way for Goldblum to consolidate his burgeoning A-list star power than to appear in … a fun and loopy new age comedy with pop star Cyndi Lauper?
Vibes marches to no beat but its own, with Goldblum the oddball psychometrist who possesses visions simply by touching things and Lauper the unlucky-in-love trance-medium with a wisecracking spirit guide called Louise. Throw in a deadbeat Steve Buscemi, the dastardly Julian Sands and Columbo himself, Peter Falk, and you’ve got a charming, bizarrely ramshackle comedy adventure that could only have come from the high-concept studio output of late-’80s Hollywood – in other words, a spot-on vehicle for Goldblum’s singular appeal.
