Romancing the Stone was on Fox Movie Channel last night, and while I was watching it I came to the surprising realization that the move is 25 years old!

25 years!?!?

It only seemed like yesterday that my church youth group went and saw it in the theater. I think I came home and told my parents something like, "I don't know why we saw that, but it was a pretty good movie!"

There are three sources for my education in the use of foul language: bowling alleys, college, and Romancing the Stone.

There are two sources for my education in Spanish: Sesame Street and Romancing the Stone.

Besides all the language influences, I think the movie also had a slight cultural or sociological influence on me as well. I can't put my finger on it, but it's there somewhere. It's not nearly as strong as the influence the Star Wars or Indiana Jones movies have on me, but it's there.
