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>

a movie made the way more should be
24 August 2000 | by (brampton canada) – See all my reviews

unpretentious and unassuming, you may easily miss seeing this movie for one that is. but don't. stick around for a bit and be drawn in to this movie. it ebbs and flows into an unusual panorama that makes a story good. it is like your favorite short story, basically a small chapter in a book of life; what happens before or after is inconsequential. this movie is one i remember years after i saw it, perhaps so shall you.
