What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the plot of the 1990 comedy Joe Versus the Volcano rests on the idea that the main character will commit suicide since he has a terminal illness. Despite the morbid premise, the cult classic is mostly upbeat, but an extended typhoon leaves background characters missing and main characters stranded for a while. One of the characters smokes, and there is some drinking, and a bit of profanity ("s--t"). The island inhabitants are also portrayed stereotypically.
