Your Memories Shared!

""Continental Divide" stars John Belushi as Ernie Souchak, a Chicago newspaper columnist (based on Mike Royko). Ernie loves Chicago; he is a true urbanite. When his hard-hitting stories about a corrupt city official bring threats to his life, his editor decides to protect him by sending him on a story out of town...waaay out of town. Ernie is sent to the Rocky Mountains to interview Nell (Blair Brown), a reclusive ornithologist. A huge fish out of water, Ernie struggles against the elements: an overweight chainsmoker in the high altitudes of the Rockies is not a pretty site. Eventually, Ernie finds the lovely Nell, and the city mouse locks horns with the country mouse almost immediately. But circumstances force Nell to take in the reluctant Ernie. As with most films like this, opposites attract, as Ernie does his best to assimulate to Nell's world. But things are heating up back in Chicago, and Ernie must come out of hiding, with Nell in tow, to set things right. Alas, Nell's home is in the mountains with her beloved eagles, so the couple must decide where true love's course will take them. Belushi is very good as slob-with-a-heart Ernie, proving his comedic charm is just as funny mild as it is wild. Brown is beautiful and appealing. Lawrence Kasden wrote the script; it's a bit spotty in places, but overall it's a funny, charming romantic comedy that spotlights a kinder, gentler Belushi."
