Nice, but forgettable film
21 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

Charlie Sheen is a Senator's aide who is assigned to take the Senator's out-of-control, teenaged daughter (Green) to a reform school/institution located a few states away. He takes along his friend (Ruck) on what turns out to be a very long and somewhat boring ride to the school. The typical misadventures occur as Green occasionally escapes from the guys, only to be caught again. Also, non-surprisingly, Green and Sheen fall in love along the way as well. It later is revealed that Green keeps escaping in part because she wants to use the trip to school to meet her mother (Kellerman), who left her when she was only a child. While this movie is not awful, there really is no real reason to watch it. Further, the idea of Sheen's character, who is supposed to be in his early 20s, falling in love with Green, who is supposed to be 16, might make some viewers a little squeamish.
