Fun 80's road movie with Charlie Sheen and Kerri Green
Released in 1987, "Three for the Road" stars Charlie Sheen & Alan Ruck as an ambitious political aide and his best friend assigned to delivering a senator's rebellious daughter to a reform institution down south (Kerri Green). The 16 year-old just wants to see her mother whom she hasn't seen in eight years (Sally Kellerman). Blair Tefkin plays a southern gal who hooks up with the trio while Raymond J. Barry plays the teenager's father, a pompous senator.
Like my title blurb says, this is just a fun 80's road flick that hits all the check boxes: Great cast, characters you care about, entertaining situations and antics on the road, a fitting 80's soundtrack, a satisfying conclusion and quality women. As far as that last one goes, Kerri was 19 during filming, which qualifies for a woman, and Blair's just an all-around whoa-man, not to mention Kellerman. Lastly, the movie doesn't wear out its welcome at a mere 88 minutes. For all these reasons, "Three for the Road" breaks the threshold of greatness, as far as amusing road flicks go.
The film was shot in Hot Springs and Little Rock, Arkansas, and is still not available on DVD as of this writing, although it's available on VHS (via sellers on the internet).
