Wonderful, unknown film
6 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember often seeing this movie on local TV stations when I was a kid, and it has remained a favorite. The story of a daydreaming English Prof who goes on an adventure binge when he believes the world is coming to an end raises all the questions about getting older and settling that have been raised before. But the cold war back drop, Benjamin's nerdy, action starved Professor, and the hilarious Chill Wills as the slightly nuts ex-cowboy actor, make this a real gem. The make out scene at the airport is weird and sets up the tone for this wild, funny, occasionally mystifying flick. This should've been an important film, but it's entirely forgotten.
