I know there are some that do not appreciate this movie; it has goofy humor and a far out story line. Joe Vs. The Volcano also has a few unforgettable moments. Moments I keep close to my heart twelve years after the movie was released. Also, I think I might be a flibbertigibbet.
The first part of the movie has a dark stylized overtone. We see Joe go to work at a interestingly creepy prosthetic limb manufacturer. Moving from funny to sad and back again, Joe is being pushed to the edge by his job and terrible boss. He treasures a hula lamp.

Joe goes to the doctor and is diagnosed with an unusual illness. His adventure begins after a visit from a very rich man with a job offer.

Part two for Meg-Angelica Graynamore. Well played-so sad and lost.

I don't want to give away anything important, so you will have to see or re-see the movie to learn more about this charming story. It has slow talky parts, and an offbeat look overall; but there are genuinely funny moments and a feeling you take away that is, in part, hopeful. Hopeful that the volcano you are about to jump into will spit you out too.

A few Quotes:
"Not that anyone could look good under these zombie lights. I, I, I, I can feel them sucking the juice out of my eyeball. Suck, suck, suck, SUCK..."
"Don't you think I know that, Frank? Don't you think I am aware there is a woman here? I can smell her, like, like a flower. I can taste her, like sugar on my tongue. When I'm 20 feet away I can hear the fabric of her dress when she moves in her chair!"
"Clothes make the man. I believe that."
"It's taken me my whole life to find out who I am, and I'm tired now, you hear what I'm saying?"
"This is our premier steamer trunk, it's all handmade, only the finest materials. It's even watertight, tight as a drum. If I had the need, and the wherewithal, Mr. Banks, this would be my trunk of choice."
"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'm soul sick."
"Take me to the Volcano!"
"I have no response to that."
"Nobody knows anything, Joe. We'll take this leap, and we'll see. We'll jump, and we'll see. That's life, right?"
