A delightful romantic comedy that launched the career of screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan (Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Empire Strikes Back). Emmy Award winner John Belushi plays Ernie, a tough Chicago reporter whose stories on the Mafia nearly get him killed. To take the heat off, he's sent to investigate an eagle researcher in rural Colorado. The two fall for each other in a hilariously heartwarming fashion. Continental Divide is a perfect romantic comedy, sincere and full of genuine laughs.
