‘Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom’ Synopsis

It’s 1935 and Indiana Jones is back in the saddle again. This time he toting around an 11-year-old boy named Short Round, and a ridiculously bad lounge singer named Willie Scott. The sexual tension between the three of them is unbearable. The movie begins with the three escaping Shanghai’s most villainous crime boss, Lao Che, at his nightclub, Club Obi Wan, and then hightailing it out of China in a plane owned by Lao.

While they sleep aboard his plane, the pilot parachutes out, and the plane crashes somewhere over the Himalayan rainbow. Luckily for our heroes, the plane has an inflatable raft, and they use that to “ski” down the mountainous slopes and into a rapid river. I think the only thing more implausible would be surviving a nuclear blast in a lead refrigerator, but that’s for another review.
