Storyline

It's Christmas time in the twin cities. Billy's working a lot of overtime, running barges on the Mississippi. He calls his friend Eddie, whom he hasn't seen in six months, and asks a favor: to drive with him to see his pregnant girlfriend, Patti, because Billy hasn't told her he's married and already has two children. The road trip of guy talk becomes a night of truths exchanged between men and women. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Promising but immature.
17 March 2000 | by (Charlottesville, VA) – See all my reviews

A promising but underdeveloped film that starts off very funny, as two unlikely middle-aged men pair up for a long road trip to visit the woman whom one of them has impregnated.

The premise is certainly intriguing, the film is watchable; but the characters, who though are supposed to come off as immature, are simply TOO immature, and so is the film. Worth a look simply to listen to the most explicit sexual language you're likely to ever hear in a non-porno film; on a trivia note, the MPAA originally slapped this film with an X rating, and it deserved it; film was unworthy of a re-rating of R (which it received after an appeal).

** out of ****.
