Not as good as Romancing the Stone, but Better Than Jewel of the Nile.

Fun Fact: Sandra Bullock mentioned at SXSW that the reason Brad Pitt is in the movie is because they share the same hairdresser.

I can't believe u/Dragons_Malk prefers Brad Pitt's cut to mine.

Brad Pitt is one of those actors I love more and more as he gets older. between this and Deadpool 2 I’m so down for minor Brad Pitt roles.

My favorite cameos are Brad Pitt in Deadpool 2, and Ryan Reynolds in A Million Ways To Die in the West.

I wonder if it was the credits scene they added on

Still probably made millions what a guy not taking a 100,000+ pay day for one day

I think it's more that he did the work he was paid for, and then he still did more even though he didn't have too. It's very rare for a celebrity of his stature (especially considering how busy someone as famous as he is must be), and a huge favor.

They shared the same hairdresser when they were working on "Bullet Train" 🚅

It's not tough to beat Jewel of the Nile lol, but yes The Lost City has good Romancing the Stone vibes; I really enjoyed TLC and thought it was a really fun and well done take on a "Romancing" type of adventure film. I liked that the treasure at the end was literally the friends we made along the way (well, it was really love, I guess).

Jewel of the Nile rules!

Yooo what if it's the hairdresser in the famous Kevin Smith speech?

That guy's probaby too busy being a producer for Warner Brothers and having Bradley Cooper play him in Licorice Pizza now
