Storyline

An odd couple take to the open road. Having followed his girlfriend out to California's Wine Country for the summer, Yale law student Sherman finds himself dumped, and cut off from his high-society mother's money. A stranger stranded in a strange land, he hitches a ride with Palmer, a washed-up, unapologetically eccentric Olympic athlete. There are detours along the way, including the possibility of an enlightening girlfriend, an encounter with a gun-wielding gourmet chef and a chance for the former athlete to be on top again. A comedy about absent fathers and damaged sons striving to find balance between responsibility and recklessness. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Palmer's car is actually at least two different cars - a 1966 MGB and a 1975 model. This is apparent in different scenes, where sometimes the car has side lamps and reverse lamps (1975) and sometimes it doesn't (1966), and where the interior changes between solid black with visible rectangular door pulls (1975) and black with red piping (1966).

The bag Sherman has slung over her shoulders keeps switching shoulders throughout the scene. See more »

Awesome movie, pretty flawless, enjoyable, funny
8 July 2008 | by pischinaSee all my reviews

I saw this movie at the Cinequest Film Festival in 2008 and thoroughly enjoyed it, and it seemed like the entire audience did too. Very likable characters, believable character growth, Excellent actors, Excellent writing. I don't like spoiling what movies are about so I won't go into details. The movie description keeps referencing "road trip" but I felt like it was sort of a road trip pitstop movie. Meaning... There's these two guys, they go on a road trip, but then they have to stop at a small town for a few days and that's where the majority of the film takes place. I'm not sure why Lacy Chabert is credited so highly in the movie because she's in it for all of 2 minutes. But Brooke Nevin is in it and she was pretty damn awesome.

I was sad this movie was over as I really enjoyed the characters and wanted to know what happens in the future. I sincerely hope this movie makes it to the big screen or at least to DVD so more people can see it. It was one of the best movies of Cinequest.
