Storyline

P.K. runs away from home because her step-father keeps on harassing her sexually and her mother is ignoring the problem. She hides in the loading space of Kid Kane's pickup, who's on the way to the world championships in arm-pressing. When he discovers her, he wants to send her home at first, but after he knows the story he takes her with him - and gets himself into big trouble: her step-father is behind them furiously, trying to kidnap her and take revenge for the stress he got from her mother.

Silly Movie!!!!
15 May 2001 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

This is a lame movie, but good for a few laughs!! I remember reading some good reviews on this movie in a magazine and rented it a few years later. An embarrasing story about a girl who runs away from her abusve stepfather to befriend an arm wrestler!!!
