Joe Versus the Volcano

Joe Versus the Volcano is a 1990 American romantic comedy film written and directed by John Patrick Shanley and starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. Hanks plays a man who, after being told he has a rare disease, accepts a financial offer to travel to a South Pacific island and throw himself into a volcano on behalf of the superstitious natives. Along the way, he meets and falls in love with the woman taking him there. Despite positive reviews from some critics, including Roger Ebert, who described the film as "new and fresh and not shy of taking chances", the film was a box office flop in the US. It has since become a cult film. ... more on Wikipedia
