version. [[spoiler:Dr. Campbell tells Dr. Crane why he doesn't want to tell anyone about the cancer cure he thinks he has discovered -- because he knows of a doctor who had discovered a painkiller in similar circumstances, which resulted in a tribe being wiped out by swine flu when the drug company came down to mass-produce it. Later on it's revealed that Campbell himself was that doctor.]]

* ChekhovsGunChekhovsGun: [[spoiler:Dr. Campbell believes he has found a cure for cancer in the local tribe's sugar supply after realising that the tribe had a very low cancer rate. He figures out that the tribe uses a particular plant for all of their food but he can't reproduce the cure himself. However he didn't consider that the supply could be contaminated and also ignores their liking for sugar coated ants.]]



* CureForCancer: Robert Campbell managed to find it with extracts from a species of bromeliad endemic to the Amazon, but unfortunately he couldn't seem to find it. [[spoiler: It turned out that it wasn't in the bromeliads at all but through a rare breed of ants.]]

to:

* NationalGeographicNudityNationalGeographicNudity: The movie has several scenes with almost or completely naked men, women and children, including a pair of shots of a line of women's buttocks when said women are helping the heroine in her scientific research. But since all the naked people are Native American, the movie got a PG-13 rating.

* [[ActorAllusion Composer Allusion]]: In concert stages, veteran composer JerryGoldsmith who did the beautiful music for this film would recount a story of how Connery copied Goldsmith's signature ponytail hairstyle for his character Robert Campbell in the film. (Meeting the composer at a cocktail party, Connery started the conversation by saying, "I want your hair." Goldsmith replied, "You can't have it, It's mine.") In the film's closing credits Goldsmith is listed as "hair designer".

HotScientist Dr. Rae "Bronx" Crane (LorraineBracco) journeys deep into TheAmazon to find out what Dr. Robert Campbell (SeanConnery), a [[BunnyEarsLawyer Bunny Ears]] [[TheProfessor Professor]], has been doing since he stopped sending in status reports. Turns out he's discovered the cure for cancer. Well, sort of. He's "lost" it and he has a week to find it again before a logging company [[GreenAesop builds a road through the only area of forest where the cure is known to exist]].

* KlatchianCoffee: Dr. Crane is given a local drink by Dr. Campbell that is 12% caffeine. She winds up hyperactive and babbling about how they could market the stuff. Amusingly, this predates the Energy Drink craze by about a decade.
