Storyline

Madie Levrington is a neurotic, wealthy woman who escapes from a New York mental institution where her unwholesome husband had her committed to avoid the trial of an expensive divorce. She manages by taking her doctor hostage and leaving him behind in an open field, and flees into the night. Madie hitches a ride back to California with Charles Callahan, a moody, debt-ridden truck driver. Madie and Charles eventually fall in love while evading an assortment of villains including a pair of thugs hired by Madie's husband to prevent her from returning to California, and a repo man sent to reclaim Charles' truck.

Blake and Cannon make a good screen-team, but this story doesn't come to much...
10 April 2009 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Spotty road-comedy has Dyan Cannon escaping from the booby hatch and hitching a ride with trucker Robert Blake. He's rather charmed by her after the usual hysterical preliminaries; seems she's not so crazy after all, and is on the run from bounty hunters hired by her nefarious husband. Cannon's natural effervescence is always a treat, and Blake is surprisingly warm and personable, but Stanley Weiser's screenplay isn't much more than a doodle. Some big laughs, and it does improve after a very sloppy opening half-hour. Mario Tosi's vivid cinematography is very good, though Joseph Sargent handles the direction like a traffic cop. ** from ****
