  • Continental Divide is a comedy about the unlikely love affair that develops between two people living on opposite sides of the country. Ernie Souchak (John Belushi) is a Chicago reporter who has recently uncovered a huge scandal in the city government. After being assaulted by two crooked policemen, he decides to leave town until things cool off. He heads west to interview Dr. Nell Porter (Blair Brown), an expert on bald eagles. Initially, the two butt heads but over time they develop a friendship that ultimately blossoms into love. Nevertheless, Souchak must eventually return to Chicago and resume his life there as a reporter. Though he is happy to be back home, he can't get Porter out of his mind. When Souchak learns that Porter is coming to Chicago to make a presentation, he decides to see her and try to rekindle their relationship. But can a cynical reporter from Chicago ever truly have a relationship with an idealist who lives on the other side of the country?moreless
