"A funny, endearing fable. Witty and beautiful." -Sheila Benson, Los Angeles Times

Laughs erupt when Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan fall in love and fall in lava - in Joe Versus the Volcano, a stylish laughquake written and directed by Moonstruck Academy Award® winner John Patrick Shanley.

This first teaming of the peerless stars of Sl--pless in Seattle and You've Got Mail follows the follies of a stressed-out guy (Hanks) in a dead-end job who is told he has a terminal "brain cloud." A zany jillionaire (Lloyd Bridges) then makes him an offer that gives him a fleeting taste of the good life. In exchange, he must journey to a Pacific island and leap into a volcano. Is Joe doomed to be the last of the red hot lovers? Not if the f-rces of imagination, romantic comedy and the charm of Ryan in three roles as the women in Joe's life have their way.
