Love, angst, rock'n roll, baby born, all on the freeway!
29 August 2000 | by (Tacoma, WA) – See all my reviews

This is definitely a guilty-pleasure movie. Such a stellar cast! I mean, Ed McMahon!! The rock band that gets stuck in the traffic jam and ends up playing to the crowd out of the back of their truck--IT'S CLASSIC!
