Storyline

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 <rocher@fiberbit.net>

This is a good little movie
2 February 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

And you're right, nobody even knows about it. A film that's content was way before its time. Ron Leibman has never been better, as a conniving fast talker, who has had enough with society, and decides it is his turn to get even. Beau Bridges does a nice job as well, but it's Leibman who steals the show.
