Joe Versus the Volcano

Joe Versus the Volcano  – a highly underrated and worthwhile film that encourages me to truly live and to appreciate the wonder of the world and the people in it.  My favorite quote from Meg Ryan’s character, Patricia:

"My father says that almost the whole world is asleep. Everybody you know. Everybody you see. Everybody you talk to. He says that only a few people are awake and they live in a state of constant total amazement."



  • I completely agree. Wonderful movie. I saw this movie on a dark time in my life and I never forgot it… or the image of Tom Hanks dancing on a trunk in the moonlight in the middle of the ocean just because he was alive.
