'Vibes' tries too hard
Lauper deserves better film

If there were an Academy Award for Most Instantly Forgettable Film, the odds-on early favorite would be "Vibes." This comedy, which tries so hard to be wacky you almost can hear huffing and puffing on the soundtrack, isn't offensive or moronic or devoid of laughs. It's just thoroughly unexceptional.


The story is about two psychics, played by Jeff Goldblum and Cyndi Lauper, who're hired by a wacky eccentric, played by Peter Falk, to go to Ecuador and find a ruin.
