Storyline

Ed Okin's life is somewhat out of control. He can't sleep, his wife betrays him, and his job is dull. One night, he starts to drive through Los Angeles, and he finally ends in the parking garage of Los Angeles International Airport. Moments later, a beautiful young lady jumps onto his bonnet and he finds himself being chased by four Iranians. What follows is a wild chase through the streets of Los Angeles, and a very funny one too. Written by Harald Mayr <marvin@bike.augusta.de>

Great movie - very Landis!
18 November 1998 | by See all my reviews

Jeff Goldblum and Michelle Pfeiffer before they really hit the

big time. A great caper style movie - part comedy, part

thriller, part urban angst. Goldblum leaves his unfaithful wife

one night and gets caught up in a bizarre series of events when

a pursued Pfeiffer lands on his car asking for help. Needless

to say he gets implicated in all kinds of things (a bit like

After Hours and Something Wild). Very funny, charming at times

and ultimately engaging - you want the night to last forever as

you become more involved in the story and the characters. Landis at his very best (what happened to him?!). Loads of cameo
