Storyline

Matt and Eddie are two young men from the mid-west travelling to California to see the sights - primarily semi-clad women on beaches. They hop into their car and head off through the desert on their quest. Hours from civilization the two are horsing around inside the car, lose control, and collide with the only car they've seen for miles. The driver of the other car is Tuesday, the most beautiful woman they've ever seen. Stranded in the desert, Matt and Eddie fantasize about Tuesday while they wait for someone to stop and help them. A motley collection of humanity happen by, but few are willing to help. Written by Brian D. Switzer <bswitzer@uoguelph.ca>

Another Rifkin classic!
31 March 2000 | by (Halifax, Nova Scotia) – See all my reviews

This movie doesn't feature many Rifkin signatures - you won't see many of the classic shots so prominent in "Invisible Maniac" or "Detroit Rock City", but there are a couple 'fantasy" sequences that are definite Rifkin shots.

Beyond the Adam Rifkin appeal, the movie wasn't that bad. In fact, the main detraction is the cameos. There are three main ones and they are so obviously written in just to have a cameo that it ruins the flow of the movie. Charlie Sheen's is great, Nicolas Cage's is OK (although his appearance is worth the price of the movie).

The whole feel of the movie has that 80's sexuality to it - the would-be sexual adventurers discovering the true meaning of relationships.

It looks good (considering there's only one location in the whole film) and the soundtrack is not bad. It's an enjoyable bit of 80's cinema that's great for watching while you dust your room or something.

And it's a must for the Rifkin fan!
