I don’t know about you, but I have a thing for Indiana Jones. And Jack T. Colton (of Romancing the Stone) and Rick O’Connell (of The Mummy). Clearly I’m attracted to hunky treasure hunters with nerves of steel and razor sharp wit. I’ve watched theses movies again and again, always imagining myself in the heroine’s shoes. Living out any one of these romantic adventures would be the thrill of a lifetime.
In my dreams.
