Storyline

Gil and Hank are two independent truckers who run into problems when they are forced to pay off traffic managers to get loads. They also have to pay off highway cops when their rigs are overweight and bank loans but consider themselves lucky just to be able to keep up the interest payments. Add to that a small, frizzy-wigged highway hooker named Janice, who tempts them with her lurid charms. Written by alfiehitchie

Good movie that could have been even greater...
28 June 2007 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

What should i say about this movie. Overall it's a good movie. The actors are doing a great job and the story is interesting. Two hardworking men, working as independent truckdrivers picks up a prostitute on their journey to Chicago. The movie is about what happens during that trip. The movie is an adventure, a dramatic roadmovie sort to say and the director is very good mixing the elements of exploitation and art and does it in a very talented way. And i think those last elements makes the movie a bit unique. But i think the end of the movie is the weak part. I think it's a bit over-dramatic and can't figure out why things needed to end the way it did in the absolute finale. Just when you thought things was gonna calm down a bit and the situation would get solved, that "thing" suddenly occurred that made it even worse (a bit illogic in my opinion but what the heck). i grade it only 6/10 cause of that (Not that bad grade anyway).
