Well I had to do at least one 70's Truck driving movie.
17 April 2003 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

When I was a little kid they had these Trucking driving country and western movies. The great smokie Road Block, Convoy, etc. Many years later I watched some of this crap on TBS, boy did I not miss much when my mother made me go to bed early. Well, I have gotten older and watched this dog on TBS, and I still could not keep awake. Some movies like a bad wine will turn into vinegar with time, and that is what this film is or at least a sleep aid. Keep on Trucking, I am happy I missed the 70's. 3/10
