Quite the truckin' adventure, that Knox steers wheel, but...
17 January 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is an adventure in itself with likable Knox who wins a mack truck in a competition. So Buddy (Knox) leaves L.A and his hot model girlfriend, his mind set on a trip he must do. He turns the back of his truck into a motor home. He even fits it with a shower. The first guy he picks up, Steele, an older trucker, he meets in a diner over chili, even asks him, "Is he a pimp?", but this is all done in jest. Trouble finds these two when they crash, this out of the country whorehouse, and they have to make a quick getaway from cops. Buddy's other pick ups is a sweet young thing who holds a fake baby, to get quicker pick ups, where she too, like Steele, is gone too soon. Then things get a little dramatic with a group of young drunken idiots, one who actually reaches across the bar to grab a bottle, where he's stopped, resulting in them being ousted. They go back with Buddy to check out his truck, where one of them takes off behind the wheel, where it's up to Buddy to stop him. Then it's really back to nothing happening land, where Buddy rethinks his life and his options, where he picks up one last trucker, a younger Miguel Ferrer, who keeps going about how good this ham roll is, that he's eating. Tasty. Well, it all works out in the end for Buddy. As a truckin' movie, I found this one that I first saw when I was fifteen, pretty cool. Knox who played the rapist in St Elsewhere, is one of the lesser known actors I like a lot and I loved the performance he gave here, plus the serve he gave to his boss after insulting him, where he dumps a box of tomatoes on his head. I never found this movie boring, though it was lacking of course a story and a plot, but it should serve as a guide to all you fellas out there, to realize what's important and what isn't in the long run, where if you leave something that you love, too long, you could live to regret it. That's the hidden message in this movie, that's worth more than any plot or story.
