Charlie is a sad sack of a man, working at a depressingly dull office job and stuck in a passionless engagement to a neurotic woman. One of the few bright spots in his life is his friend Mike, who seems to be living a life of carefree bohemianism. When the two end up on a long road trip together, they are forced to re-examine their lives and worldviews. Mike may have independence in some ways, but it has come at a price. Charlie, in turn, may feel trapped, but how much of the trap is of his own making? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>

Two Main Characters make up for Films Weaknesses
5 July 2001 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Very low budget film that looks like a tv movie with a supporting cast that can best be described as 'stock characters'. Bridges fiancee (played by Janet Margolin) is particularly annoying. However, despite these drawbacks, it's the two main characters and their interactions with each other that make this film so interesting. Both represent the different ends of the american spectrum. Leibman is the free spirit who goes through life like it's just one big party. Yet he has no job and mounting debt. Bridges is the responsible one with a decent job and a beautiful fiancee. Yet he feels shackled and bored. Together they try to escape themselves by going on a long carefree trip. Slowly the trip begins to unravel, exposing the thin line that is out there, and how everyone and everything has their limits. A rather caustic view of the EASY RIDER syndrome in this good, but not great, movie.
