I'm hoping someone who owns the Blu-ray of Romancing the Stone can tell me whether or not the subtitles in this film have finally been restored, as they've been missing ever since the VHS release. For those who don't know what I'm talking about (and who, like me, don't speak Spanish), have you wondered why the drug lord's thugs suddenly turn friendly as Jack & Joan are standing at his door? Because when Jack says "Write us out of this one, Joan Wilder", the drug lord recognizes her name and tells his thugs "This is the woman who writes the books I read to you on Saturday nights!". Big laugh with the subtitle, headscratcher without. This is only the most glaring example, but there are several others. I was disappointed when I upgraded from VHS to Laserdisc and found that the subtitles were gone...doubly disappointed when I upgraded to the special edition DVD a few years back and they were STILL gone (and yes, I tried turning on all the subtitle options). My hope is that someone who owns the Blu-ray can tell me that they've finally been returned to their rightful place! Please?!?

I just got my Blu-ray copy today and watched the movie. There are subtitles on the scene you mentioned, and there are subtitles on some of the other scenes too.
