So funny I forgot to laugh
21 April 2006 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

This movie was given to me with a large assortment of videos, and this was the first one I watched, lucky me eh? Rafferty and the Gold Dust Twins is a road movie about a sad sack of a guy who is kidnapped by a pair of uh, how shall I say it, UNUSUAL female hitchhikers. A woman named Beachwood, played by Sally Kellerman, who seems to have some mental problems,. And a teenager named Frisbee played by Mackenzie Phillips who seems to have some personal issues that the film never REALLY gets around to explaining. Anyways, after some road hijinx, the three get used to each other and all agree to go to New Orleans, since Frisbee is from there. They travel to Vegas, get into some hijinx there, go to Houston, get into more hijinx, etc etc. No real plot, just a light.. really light character study. Arkin is the best actor here, Kellerman is just slightly strange and I'm not 100% sure if it's her character or what. Oh and she sings too (shudder) and lip syncs badly (shudders even more). Finally, what the hell was Mackenzie Phillips so annoyed about? Her face doesn't raise above a scowl for 95% of the movie. The only time she smiles is at the end of the movie. So did I, Mackenzie, but just because this movie was over.
